In March 2020, analyzing the global impact caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and following
the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) and health authorities in

well-being of all those involved: participants, sponsors and supporters.
Since then, we have followed the procedures carried out to combat the new coronavirus
around the world, hoping for the safety and wellbeing of the professionals who are at the front
line of this battle and sympathizing with so many families who were left helpless by the loss of
loved ones. We have passed through hard moments, still hoping that all would be well soon.
