Run in the beautiful Tivoli Gardens and support the Danish Child Cancer Foundation at the same time. Entry is open for this year’s Breakfast Run.

27.560 Danish Kroner.

This is the amount, which Sparta, the organizer of Copenhagen Marathon, was able to donate to the Danish Child Cancer Foundation after the very first edition of the pre-marathon Breakfast Run in the Tivoli Gardens last year.

Money, which goes to make a real difference for children with cancer and their families.

And they will make a difference once again this year, because Sparta and the Danish Child Cancer Foundation have agreed to continue the partnership and invite marathon runners to a second edition of the Breakfast Run through the beautiful amusement garden.

About the Breakfast Run in Tivoli 2020

  • The Breakfast Run is held on Saturday, May 16, starting at 10:00 am.
  • The entry fee is DKK 175, which includes a light breakfast serving, coffee, free entrance to the Tivoli Gardens for all participants and their families on May 16.
  • A donation to The Danish Child Cancer Foundation of DKK 10 for each lap (800 metres) completed.
  • Maximum number of participants is 500.

Research provides hope

All runners have 30 minutes to complete as many laps of approximately 800 metres through the Tivoli Gardens.

For each lap completed, Sparta will donate DKK 10 to the Danish Child Cancer Foundation. The money goes into research in childhood cancer treatment and to support the families, who are undoubtedly facing a very difficult time.

Kids get other forms of cancer than adults, and more aggressive too, and must often undergo years of treatment. Four out of five kids survive cancer today, but there are still some who don’t. 50 percent of those who do, face permanent injuries and side effects of the extremely intense treatment.

Working to secure children the best cancer treatment and support for their families, the Danish Child Cancer Foundation is the organisation, that funds most childhood cancer research in Denmark. Research is the best we can do to give hope to the affected children and their families.

”We are thankful to Sparta and Tivoli for helping us raise money for children suffering from cancer. Targeted funding is vital in order to secure, that more children survive cancer. We are a private foundation and therefore fully dependent on funding and initiatives such as the Breakfast Run in Tivoli,” says Marianne Benzon Nielsen, CEO of the Danish Child Cancer Foundation.
