The Run for Life in Ditzingen, which has been held annually since 1999, is a special event. After all, the participants do not just want to achieve the fastest time. It is much rather about the distance covered. This is because each kilometer brings in donations which are defined individually prior to the race. Friends and sponsors of the runners provide the money and thus support the Muskoviszidose e.V. (an organization helping mucoviscidosis patients).
