Corrida Rara 2020
29 February 2020
Cidade Administrativa sede do Governo de Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, Brasil
Hosted by ArELA_MG
On February 29, 2020, in the city of Belo Horizonte, state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, the "Rare Race" took place on the International Rare Disease Awareness Day.
There were about 1200 people present at the event among runners, walkers and the family of a rare patient. It was a day of socialization and exchange of experiences between society and the families of patients with rare diseases.
Patients and their families were able to participate actively in a sporting and leisure environment, with stretching, dancing, music, bangoo jumping, 5 km running and inclusive walking activities.
We reached the goal of offering sports, leisure and inclusion of the rare family in the calendar of official events in the city of Belo Horizonte on the Day of International Awareness of Rare Diseases promoting the engagement of society with the causes of rare diseases.
