The annual charity fundraising table tennis marathon at HiTT Academy was held on the 12th & 13th December 2015. A record sum of €2207.40 was raised for the Malta Community Chest Fund in collaboration with Solidarjeta bl-Isport.
The marathon of 30 hours of non-stop table tennis took place at St Albert The Great College in Valletta which was turned into a place where all the families and ex-players as well as players from other clubs and from the general public, could meet to play some table tennis, socialise and bring on the Christmas spirit all in aid of those less-fortunate.
A record sum of €2250 was raised on this occasion bringing HiTT Academy at the top 2 of sport organisations that have collected the largest sum of money within the Solidarejta bl-Isports campaign.
This is what Mr Oswald Tanti from MCCF Solidarjeta bl-Isports had to say following the event:
[line-quote color=”#fc0505″ ]Dear Mario and Katia, Have just learnt form my colleague about the success of the Marathon. Congratulations to all of you for such a great achievement by the Academy which will probably be close to double the amount raised last year. It was indeed a great pleasure for me to visit your academy and witness the activity and involvement of all the volunteers who dedicated so much of their time to ensure the success of this year’s Marathon. Truly well done for succeeding to motivate so many Academy members and attract so many participants, without whose assistance and support it would not have been possible to obtain such an impressive result.
Keep up the good and excellent work which, apart from the satisfaction it gives you and all your colleagues, makes us as members of the SBS Coordinating Team, all extremely proud to have your Academy as one of its most valid member of H.E.’s MCCF L-Istrina “Solidarity through Sport Family”.
On behalf of the Office and all my colleagues GRAZZI u prosit mill-Qalb.
