We are Europe – Donate your T-shirt!
Runners of the University team are happy to make their contributions to the VCM’s motto of [We are Europe]
. The new motto for Austria's major sporting event emphasises the sense of community through running. In conjunction with the VCM’s theme for the year a collection of running T-shirts has been started. In the build-up to the VCM 2015 the T-shirts shall be turned into a giant, multi-coloured [Carpet for Europe]
. This carpet will be auctioned for the VCM charity.
Donate your T-shirt – it can still be useful! A T-shirt box is located at the aula of the University of Vienna (turn left from the main entrance to the direction of the library).
The team of the Vienna City Marathon congratulates the University of Vienna on the big jubilee and wishes all runners an unforgettable experience!
