The popular event was held in November 2018 in Monaco, with more than 15,000 people taking part. They all walked or ran a total 432,662 kilometres, meaning that the NGO Children & Future was able to donate €432,662 to the various projects that it supports.

The highest donation of more than €100,000 was given to the Cardio-Thoracic Centre by Monaco Collectif Humanitaire to help children in need.

It was revealed this week that four children suffering congenital heart disease have been receiving life-saving surgery thanks to the donation. They are: four-year-old Awa from Mali, nine-year-old Nouredine from Burkina Faso, 11-year-old Ahmet from Senegal, and nine-year-old Tony Blaise from Burundi.
