On September 7, 2014, CROsinverS BGS, the only cross-country in the country to run for charity back, was launched for the second time. For each participant, 10 euros were donated to the child for whom the person enrolled.
Approximately 600 people ran 1 km behind their backs for the three children: Roberta, Mihai and Horia, so 6,000 euros were donated. The participants had so many moving moments, the meeting with Mihaiţă, as well as the sweet moments offered by Gift Solutions, 7 days, Carrefour and Belvita. Also, all those who participated in CROsinverS had the opportunity to paint one of the 3 paintings that were auctioned online, also to support the three sick children.
