Get ready for a good cause: 13th Peter Maffay Foundation "Walk & Run"

Lace up your running shoes and set off on the seven-kilometre course, inspired by fresh air and enthusiastic cheers! After the head has worked all day, it's the legs' turn in the evening: on May 21, 2025, the 13th Peter Maffay Foundation "Walk & Run" will start as part of the SERVIEW Summit to benefit the Peter Maffay Foundation.

From 6:30 p.m., the runners will run through the picturesque natural landscape of the Odenwald. Each and every individual crosses the finish line as a winner, because everyone is running together for the welfare of disadvantaged and traumatized children.

Of course, the "Walk & Run" is free of charge for all congress participants, as SERVIEW will pay the entry fee. External runners are also very welcome and can take part for an entry fee of ten euros. All proceeds will be donated to the Peter Maffay Foundation. Join us - whether running or cheering - and do something good as part of the SERVIEW Summit. We are expecting around 250 motivated runners at the starting line, so you will be in good company!

The Peter Maffay Foundation has been committed to helping traumatized and disadvantaged children and young people for over 20 years by providing them with therapeutic activity vacations.
