On June 17th, CASI will hold a special day for all farmers, workers and consumers who love the healthy life to raise awareness of Almeria’s local tomato through sport and celebrate the land, food safety, respect for the environment and taste. Spain’s largest agricultural cooperative has organised a People’s Run to raise money for the NGOs A Toda Vela and Argar, who help parents of children with cancer. “We could not end our campaign in a better way,” said Miguel Vargas, president of the cooperative. “Our intention is to promote a healthy lifestyle and bring farmers and consumers together in a relaxed atmosphere.”

The run will end at the CASI La Cañada facilities and will consist of a 7km and 10km run and a 7.5km hike. There will be games and other fun activities to entertain children and encourage them to live healthy lives.

Pre-registrations begin from Thursday, May 17th at www.casipopularrunning.es and the runners will make a donation of 10 euros that will entitle them to a race number and kit that CASI and collaborators will provide. All participants will be offered to a paella and a musical show at the same finishing line.
