7 maratones en 7 días

From September 4 to 11, Roger and Sergio Hernández, father and son from Valencia, will travel the 280 kilometers that separate Astorga and Santiago de Compostela in just one week, which means that his legs will have to support seven stages with an average of 40 km daily. This altruistic initiative, which seeks to raise funds for those affected by lupus, is part of the campaign 'Run the Camino de Santiago in 7 marathons in 7 days' and its objective is "to contribute to foster the associative movement of lupus patients" According to AVALUS (Valencian Association of Affected of Lupus), that is behind.

The funds that the initiative will collect will be destined to a new research project, 'Evaluation of proinflammatory cytokine profile in the follow-up of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus', which is being carried out at the University Hospital de La Fe de Valencia. In addition, a portion will be used to fund the association, so you can continue to inform and mobilize about the condition of lupus.

Lupus is a disease that affects the immune system and causes it to attack healthy tissues and cells of the organism, such as skin, joints or kidneys, among other organs; Mainly is of hereditary origin and is suffered by 1% of the world population. In order that all stakeholders can contribute with the initiative 'Run the Camino de Santiago in 7 marathons in 7 days', the association AVALUS has enabled a channel of donations through the platform Mi Grano de Arena and that will be active during the next months .
