The Children in Need Foundation is the beneficiary of the proceeds from the 24-hour padel marathon.

The event will commence at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, April 30, and end at 3 p.m. on May 1 at the Padel Malta courts in Pembroke.

The project, according to the foundation, will both help collect much-needed finances to support this purpose and increase awareness of the work it does to support any child in need.

“Following last year’s running challenge, ‘1 Run, 1 Childhood’, we’re back with a different event, yet with the same aim of continuing to push our cause and provide support for any child who finds themselves in a difficult situation,” Daniel Abela, Chairman of the Children in Need Foundation said.

“We shall remain close to the community and send a strong message about how important it is to help those in need, especially our little ones.”

Both seasoned athletes and newcomers to the sport are welcome to participate in the marathon, and those who have never played are urged to give it a shot on the occasion.

There will be plenty of entertainment for onlookers, including a bouncy castle and a variety of food options from the venue.

Additionally, an exhibition match is scheduled for Wednesday, May 1, at 11:00 a.m.

The Children in Need Foundation is in charge of organizing the marathon, and Nium is a sponsor.
