In October there will be several Municipalities and Italian organizations that will host events and meetings to raise awareness about breast cancer prevention and early diagnosis. Also this year Livigno will support the cause by organizing a unique occasion in which sport, friendship and fun will unite to raise awareness on the theme of prevention.
During the weekend just ended, Livigno and Aquagranda Active You! Together with ATS della Montagna and its Director, Dr. Cecconami, organized the 24h in Pink, a race along the newly inaugurated athletics track of which the absolute protagonists 600 women of all ages have participated in a twenty-four-hour relay race starting from 10.30 on Saturday 28 September to give a strong signal of their struggle to support breast cancer prevention.
To open the race, Saturday, September 28, there was Dr. Cecconami and Romina Galli, Councilor for Social Services, Education, Culture and Youth Policies of Livigno: among women who took turns on the track, even 60 students of the middle schools of Livigno, as well as the girls of Team Run4 of Bormio, which has always fought for prevention in support of all women. Among others, the two former athletes Marianna Longa and Katja Colturi also raced on the track. Alternating to cover all 24 hours, without ever leaving the track empty, the 600 women made 608 laps, for a total of 243 km.
Dr. Cecconami - we at ATS still want to take the opportunity to promote a healthy lifestyle, a cornerstone for preventing even other chronic diseases and cardiovascular diseases. October will be a month full of events, trekkings, concerts and informative evenings, addressed to women but also to men: the Aquagranda track, with its blue color, helped in a certain sense to remember it >>
Municipal Councilor of Livigno Sharon Zini - As a municipality and a tourist agency, we have for years been undertaking the direction of sports promotion to offer our guests active holidays, where the well-being of the person is at the center. We are certain that this is a compelling model, and that we will carry on also in the 2026 Olympics
On Sunday, at the end of the race, the Aquagranda terrace was the stage of a light buffet open to all the public, which the guests consumed under a bright sun that accompanied the whole weekend. On the occasion of the 24h in Rosa, the entire center of Aquagranda Active You! offered all women free access to its six areas throughout the weekend, a Jaked tank top for all participants and, moreover, on Saturday 28 September ATS della Montagna was present at Aquagranda with “Piccoli gesti newspapers to gain health ”, a special corner where women were able to carry out check-ups, to make the population aware of the importance of adopting healthy lifestyles.
At the end of the prevention month, Friday 22 October Livigno and Aquagranda Active You! will host at the Plaza Placheda Congress Hall a free conference entitled "'An apple a day ... and the foods that make us feel good'", by Dr. Lorella Cecconami, ATS General Manager of the mountain.
For two years we have been enthusiastically embracing this project promoted by ATS della Montagna and it is always a pleasure for us to collaborate with Dr. Cecconami - Councilor Romina Galli recalled - events like this serve not only to raise awareness among women, men and boys, but also to make them aware of reality, even if sometimes hard to accept, and to put into practice increasingly correct practices, also and above all linked to food.
