Initiative of the Volunteering team of Corporación Hijos de Rivera

The 5KM Solidarios is the race promoted by the volunteer team of all the companies of Hijos de Rivera Corporation which allocates the total of its collection to support the activity of the Spanish Federation of Food Banks (FESBAL) and that this year will take place virtually. The registration process started a couple of weeks ago through the web and there are already about 400 runners from different parts of the world who have wanted to join the cause.

This is the sixth edition of this initiative of the volunteer team made up of part of the staff of the different companies that make up the Hijos de Rivera Corporation and that has the Rías Altas Food Bank and FESBAL as organizers, and also with the collaboration of entities such as the Agrela Entrepreneurs Association, the Provincial Fire and Rescue Consortium of A Coruña, GLS and Cabreiroá.

Each one chooses the place, the moment and the difficulty of their solidarity challenge

The streets of A Coruña will give way on this occasion to the environment that each of the participants chooses to face this solidarity challenge. Runners will be able to choose both the route as its difficulty, and even the day and time you are going to do it, always between November 28 and December 5. During this period, you must complete the 5km distance through the official app previously downloaded on your mobile. The app will allow geolocation, registration and synchronization of all participants.

Registration is done through the website Participation is open to anyone, without age limit, and the route can be done both running and walking.

The registration fee is 5 euros per person, as a donation, and can be done until December 4. All those people who cannot or do not wish to take the tour, but do participate, may collaborate with donations “Dorsal 0” through the Web.

In its previous edition in A Coruña, more than 1,200 participants turned to this event in which its sporting, playful and supportive character coexists. On this occasion, the festive spirit associated with this event is lost, but its potential for solidarity is reinforced since many more people will be able to access this test and collaborate with their donations with the activity of collecting and distributing food among the underprivileged groups to whom gives FESBAL help and its 54 associated Food Banks.
