Last year’s No Finish Line event brought together 10,000 participants who ran or walked 251,770 kilometres and raised the same amount in sponsorship donations.

The latest charity event was the first without any coronavirus pandemic restrictions.

Among the charities that benefitted locally were the Flavien Foundation, which received 20,000 euros and Fight Aids Monaco, which received 19,000 euros for a three-year educational project for orphans of HIV-positive patients in Madagascar.

Children & Future, the Monegasque Association that organises No Finish Line, selected a total of 25 recipient charities, not just in France and Monaco, but also in Africa and Asia.
