It also falls within the attention that the Bank pays to sports and children, so as to put at the disposal of this group the benefits of sport practice and of those habits that contribute to the integral development of the youngsters.

 

The Unicaja Color Road was presented today at Cadiz City Council in a press conference, in an event attended by Unicaja Banco’s Manager for the Area of Cadiz Bay, Francisco Javier Venzala; Pedro Armendáriz, Unicaja Banco’s Head of Strategic Segements; Adrián Martínez, Sports, Youth and E-Government Councilor of Cadiz City Council; and Mercedes Díaz, Unicef representative in Cadiz.

 

The race will take place on Sunday 11 November, at 12:00, and it will start from the roundabout Ingeniero La Cierva, passing through Cadiz promenade (avenida Amílcar Barca) until Plaza Asdrúbal and back to the start point. In each kilometer of the route, enlivened with music, there will be a color zone, a place where runners will be showered with colored powder.

 

At the end of the race, music and color will reach its peak in a festival where participants will relax and enjoy several hours of fun enlivened by DJs.

 

Unicaja Color Road’ (www.unicajacolorroad.es) is a charity, sporting and untimed run, where no special physical condition is required and with no winners or prizes. All that participants needs is interest in doing something different and for fun. It is a 5k race, for all publics: children, teenagers and adults.

 

How to get bibs

 

Participants can get free or discounted bibs by using the different promotions available on www.unicajacolorroad.es. Bibs can also be purchased on that website.   

 

When buying the bib for the Unicaja Color Road, each participant collaborates with the development of UNICEF programs to assist the most vulnerable children, to enhance child survival and to improve access to water, sanitation, health, education or protection. With only four euros from the charity bibs, the United Nations Children’s Fund can provide safe drinking water to 221 children in emergency situations during one day, or vaccinate six children against diseases as measles, which can be fatal in some countries.

 

The Unicaja Color Road, promoted by Unicaja Banco, is organized by Color Race Spain and with the collaboration of Cadiz City Council and Unicef.
