4th Edition of the Football Marathon 2008

The fourth Puttinu 60 hour football marathon was held between Friday the 25th and Sunday the 27th of April 2008 at the Marsa Sports Complex in collaboration with the KMS. The families, sponsors, volunteers, the media and all those who helped in any way made the 4th Football Marathon such a huge success. The sum raised during this marathon was €233,000 (LM100,000) and a garage was also donated by a generous couple. Without any doubt what we found most impressive was that a part of this sum was donated by children taking part in the football matches. It was really great to see these children doing their part to raise money to help other children like themselves.

Apart from the football matches which involved about 500 teams, there was animation throughout the day, as well as evening entertainment- singing and dancing- with the participation of several well-known personalities. His grace Archbishop Mons. Paul Cremona, the Prime Minister Dr. Laurence Gonzi and the acting-leader of the opposition Dr. Charles Mangion all attended this event and were very glad to meet our families. Various parliamentarians also attended the activities and actively participated in the football matches.

The live transmission on all local TV channels on Saturday 25th aided this fundraising event. The success of this marathon was also due to the hard work of the staff at Rainbow and many other volunteers. However it would not have been possible without the generosity of many sponsors who helped us in various ways as well as the invaluable coverage and support that was given by individual journalists and presenters, and newspapers, radio and TV stations.

Our latest project was the acquisition of 3 apartments within walking distance of Royal Marsden Hospital in the UK. With this marathon we started on the way to paying off these apartments which are considered to be the property of all Maltese citizens to help those families whose children are unfortunately suffering from cancer and need to go abroad for part or all of their treatment. At least they will not need to worry about where they will be staying and can focus better on the needs of their sick child.
