Last Sunday, March the 5th, 17 workers of Natura Bissé, with relatives and friends, made the 15 km journey of the fourth edition of the Magic Line Sant Joan de Déu, a solidarity mobilization organized by the San Joan de Déu Foundation, to raise funds for its social projects.
The volunteer employees of Natura Bissé began the walk to the hospital Sant Joan de Déu, which celebrates the 150th anniversary of the beginning of the center of the religious order. They enjoyed a fantastic sunny day and a stroll through magnificent areas of Barcelona, in a family atmosphere full of good energy and moving for a good cause. The walk ended in the avenue of the Cathedral where in the afternoon there was also a solidarity concert. In the concert, “Music for inclusion”, Gossos, Motis & Chamorro, Quimi Portet, Andreu Rifé and Clams participated with users of different programs of the Sant Joan de Déu Foundation.
The team of the Ricardo Fisas-Natura Bissé Foundation was one of 850 teams registered with 12,565 participants. Together they managed to raise almost € 280,000 for social programs in the 15 centers of Sant Joan de Déu, including aids, inclusion flats, complementary therapies and biomedical research. In these facilities are served to people who are homeless or in a situation of dependency, with mental disorder, intellectual disability or hospitalized children. With this walk culminate five months full of activities of solidarity to achieve the economic challenge that each team had raised when it registered. In the case of Natura Bissé, they have collaborated raising € 1,100. Everything a success!
