Once more “Hospital San Joan de Deu” in Barcelona” volunteering has managed to mobilize people, businesses and capital. Congratulations #josocbml.

5 Ideas on Barcelona Magic Line 2016

  1. It is a charity event organized by San Juan de Dios in favour of the most vulnerable in our society. Social support to families at risk by providing food, hygiene, transport and accommodation. Flats or social inclusion flats where volunteers and specialized temporary professionals help people unattended, promoting autonomy and links to a community. With specialized therapies such as music therapy, therapy to develop personal and social skills. With international cooperation, “solidarity is a way to rebel against the injustice of being born in some parts of the world as” Dr. Francisco José Cambra, director of Cuidam program. And with social and biomedical research.
  2. It is a noncompetitive walk in teams by the hills of Barcelona. Each team solidarity manages an economic challenge and a walking challenge. That one can be 10, 20, 30 or 40 kilometers. Registration of a team costs 30 € and then each team or member may donate or organize events to increase its revenue.
  3. People of all ages and conditions can participate, as there are sections for children and for people with reduced movility. The 40 kilometers challenge can be done by those with a faster capacity.
  4. The Magic Line 2015 raised € 225,000 and the Magic Line 2014 grossed € 137,000.
  5. The Barcelona Magic Line is complemented by two other sporting and charity events #Trailwalker and #Corremjunts where the #ObraSocialSanJuandeDios collaborate, sharing #Aspasim # OxfamIn1termón and values.
