Description of the event: 
ESN Roma ASE took part in the 19th edition of the Race for the Cure in Rome, a 5km non competitive run meant to raise money for breast cancer research. We signed up as a team and allowed Erasmus students to buy tickets for the special price of 10€, instead of 15€ (our section payed the difference). Participants got a kit which included a t-shirt and a series of gadgets. They could access the "health village" set up at Circo Massimo starting from the 17th of May and take part in the actual race, either by running or marching. For those who opted for the latter, our staff provided extra entertainment by playing music using the partybag.
