Charity Run for Cancer Treatment - Join Us!


From this year onwards, the Sports Office of the University of Pécs will be the host of this great charity event celebrating its 10th anniversary of cancer-treatment runs in Pécs. The main aim of the colleagues of the Sports Office is to spend all the money raised by running on the patients via a foundation. This year, the beneficiary of the charity run is the EURAKVILO Paediatric Oncology and Children's Hospice Public Benefit Foundation.
