Run the Milano Marathon with Bocconi

The 42km city race returns on 2 April (but don’t worry, there are also relays). Our University will be a Bronze Charity Partner: run to support the new generations studying at Bocconi and to remember Fabrizio, an Alumnus with a big heart.

Imagine That…
Imagine that 2 April is the perfect day to spend outdoors.
Imagine that downtown Milan and its most beautiful streets are closed to traffic.
Imagine that it will be a great party for everyone involved, pro runners, enthusiasts, fans and the curious.
Imagine that it’s a good excuse to get back in shape and wear those shoes that are still too new.
Imagine that by participating you can concretely support a cause you believe in.

All these things put together make up the Milano Marathon 2017, the city’s most anticipated sporting event, now in its 17th edition.

Sports and Doing Good
The Charity Program has always been associated with Milan’s most famous marathon. This large community project allows all runners to participate for a non-profit organization and help raise funds for it.

For this edition, Bocconi University has decided to participate in the program as a Bronze Charity Partner and to support the Partial Undergraduate Scholarships project, which allows deserving students to receive a 60% waiver off the enrollment fee.

In Memory of Fabrizio
The goal is to raise at least €12,000, the amount needed to support one student for the entire Bachelor of Science degree. The scholarship will be named in memory of a great Bocconi Alumnus, a passionate runner, an enthusiastic fundraiser and a key player in this event (who was the first person to get the University involved in the marathon!): Fabrizio Cosi.

Participate, Give, Invite
So what can you do? Run the marathon, support the project, get your friends involved. And if you don't have your own team, don't worry: we will set it up for you.
Bocconi University is making relay teams of 4 people each (10km per person), available free of charge.

In exchange for a race bib, each relay team agrees to promote the project among their friends, relatives and acquaintances and raise €1,000 for the scholarship through the Rete del Dono crowdfunding portal. The entire Bocconi community is encouraged to participate: Alumni, students, faculty and staff. Gifts of every size  count and together we can make a difference.

Participate by running or walking, it doesn’t matter whether you come in first. What counts is to cross the finish line together.
