2020 Virtual London Marathon

Why we need your help

APARU is a London-based Registered Charity that supports projects for the most disadvantaged people in Argentina via multiple ways of fundraising. Since 2003, we have provided financial support to programmes on education, health care, housing, and social integration.

APARU has 4 amazing runners eager to start the 2020 Virtual Virgin London Marathon. They will run in places like Chicago, Tucumán and Buenos Aires. In order to complete these 42 km of bravery and hard work, they are asking for your generosity to support our cause.

Marcelo, Amy, Marcela and Eduardo have been training hard to beat their own records and get the most valuable medal:  the smile of someone who needed help at these difficult times.

Please join them. Your support, no matter how big or small, becomes essential for the people in need during these challenging and difficult times. To fin dout more about the projects we support please visit: https://www.aparu.org.uk/fundacionyeah

Marcelo de Bernardis

Amy Kitterman

Has been running races since 2017 and has completed 3 Marathons so far. Inspired to run in tribute for a close friend who passed away suddenly in 2016, she run her first marathon in September 2018. She later completed the 2019 Tokyo Marathon and 2019 Chicago Marathon

 

Eduardo Baixauli

Having started running after recovering from a serious physical injury, Eduardo decided to complete 42 Marathons in his life. After taking part on Marathons in Argentina (including a 120K “ultra Marathon”) he is committed to his “42 goal” and delighted to support APARU while doing so.

 

Marcela Lucas

Lawyer and mother of three kids, she is a passionate runner since her first New York City Marathon became a “love at first run” in 2016. That love took her to complete the Independence Marathon in Tucumán, Argentina, and the Chicago Marathon in 2019.

Her challenge for 2020 was to run another Marathon, and then came the opportunity to do it for a good cause!
