Marathon 1st Edition 2005

The first football marathon in aid of Puttinu Cares was held at the Marsa Sports Grounds on the 29th, 30th, and 31st March 2005. The idea originated when Mr. Ray Cuschieri made a suggestion to Mr. Rennie Zerafa (a nurse working at the paediatric oncology ward and the founder of the Puttinu Cares) to organize a marathon that will be the exclusive main event of the support group.

Being football crazy, Mr. Zerafa decided that it would be ideal to organize a 60hour football marathon in which around 300 teams from different clubs and nurseries took part. A large number of local singers and entertainers have also offered their services voluntarily. This marathon was organised in collaboration with the Kunsill Malti ghall-Isports.

They made the marathon possible by providing all of the Marsa Sports Grounds facilities. The main volunteer helpers involved in the setting up of the marathon were Geraldine Sciberras who was the secretary till 2009 and the present secretary Linzia Bajjada. Also Noel Borg a.k.a Mannarinu, Julian, Peter and the Franciscan youth of Gifra Hamrun worked hard to make this first marathon a success.

The aim of this marathon mainly focused on increasing the awareness on Puttinu Cares and through generous donation Lm4,500 (€10,485) were raised.
