MikuLÁSS Charity Run 2019

The MikuLÁSS charity run event took place on December 8, 2019 at Margitsztiget Atlétikai Centrum. MikuLASS, the title of the event, is made up of the Hungarian word for Saint Nicolas (Mikulas) and the name of the LASS foundation. LASS is a foundation supporting disabled athletes. The CEU team wearing Santa Claus hats had a great opportunity to experience how people of all ages and abilities can be a part of the same fundraising project.
We, all ran for a good cause on this freezing Sunday morning. 
Overall, it was an amazing day for all of us.
