Nord Compo participates in “Clowns of Hope”
New York, November 11, 2018 — Held every October in Lille, France, the Clowns of Hope Relay Marathon event raises money for this charitable organization. The money is used to send clowns and other artists into children’s hospitals to lift the spirits of the ailing children. The event attracts around 1500 runners, all of whom run a 5k, 7k or 10k leg of the marathon.
With sunny skies and temperatures reaching 75°F, it was perfect weather for the race. Nord Compo sent three teams to support the charity (and to run). While no Olympic records were broken, thousands of Euros were raised for this worthy cause.
