Cairo Festival City Hosts “Wings for Life” Marathon

In Cooperation with Red Bull, Ignite Egypt & Allianz Egypt with the Aim to Raise Donations for Spinal Cord

 

Cairo Festival City (CFC), an affiliate of Egypt’s leading real estate developer Al Futtaim Group Real Estate (AFGRE), hosted the “Wings for Life” marathon, which is taking place for the first time in Egypt. Taking place in cooperation with Red Bull, Ignite Egypt and Allianz Egypt, the event aims to support research to find a cure for spinal cord injury, one of the world’s most severe injuries and the most expensive to cure.

 

“Wings for Life” world run is a global running movement that was inaugurated in 2014 by the Wings for Life not-for-profit spinal cord research foundation. Supported by Red Bull, the marathon annually takes place all over the world simultaneously during the first week of May, with the participation of professional athletes, runners, and wheelchair participants from across the world. The global movement aims to collect funds to support cutting-edge research to find a cure for spinal cord injury and raise awareness about the risks of spinal cord injury.

Cairo Festival City is committed to host several events and marathons to raise awareness on different diseases and collect funds to support finding a cure for them. These events include the “Run for a Heart” marathon that aimed to raise funds for child’s heart diseases, and “Run for a Cure” marathon that aimed to raise awareness among women about early detection of cancer and supported efforts toward treatment.
