Runners braved the pouring rain to take part in Milan's annual celebration of running, Stramilano.
And thanks to the support of Livio Leardi, who is the CEO and owner of GetFIT, and his wife Susanna Gregorio who collected a donation to the Happy House from all those who registered through their fitness and lifestyle centres, our family is to receive a donation of 650 Euros.
GetFIT, which has 12 clubs in Milan, plus one in nearby Gallarate and another in Switzerland, was among the subscription points for the annual run over a choice of three distances.
The event is one of the highlights of the sporting calendar in Milan and attracts thousands of entrants from all all over Italy plus many other parts of the world.
Judging the pictures of those who took part from GetFIT, it was a lot of fun despite the heavy rain.
Thanks you from all our family to Livio and Susanna for raising both money and awareness for our family.
