On February 27, 2011, employees from GFI Software (Malta) participated in the 26th Malta Marathon in order to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
In brief, Cystic Fibrosis is a life threatening disease that attacks the lungs and pancreas; CF patients require constant daily medication and at present there is still no cure for the condition.
A number of Malta office employees joined the 2,000 Malta Marathon participants to show their solidarity towards CF. In less than four hours, they made their way along the 21km track and were awarded a medal for reaching the finish line.
Not only did these employees collect money and promote CF Trust a few weeks before the event, but the voluntary GFI charity fund committee added their donation to the funds raised.
The GFI employees are now looking forward to seeing their efforts help see off CF.
