The Hogar del Niño is preparing one of the most important and impressive sporting events of the year for the Casa de Campo community. Sorry! Not only for us, but for the entire Dominican Republic too… And some very good news for the marathon “Casa de Campo Corre” is that the renowned actress and TV presenter, Nashla Bogaert, will be taking part!
Recently we saw Nashla Bogaert starring alongside her husband David Maler in the film Código Paz, and after this excellent preparation for filming, there’s no doubt she is in optimum condition to run in this important marathon, which will take place on Saturday, December 6th at Casa de Campo, the most luxurious and exclusive resort in the country.
This is your opportunity to get out and about, get fit and support a good cause, the Casa de Campo Corre has options for all ages and abilities. There will be a 5km, 10km and a 21km race, so for those of you looking for a real challenge, this is your chance to run your first half marathon (21km).
To promote this super-marathon Geuri García, from the Patronato Benefico Oriental and Nashla Bogaert recorded a commercial, which we bring you below:
