Corri la vita
Salvatore Ferragamo is the main sponsor of the charity sports event “Corri la Vita”, which is held every year in Florence. Corri la Vita's proceeds go to non-profit projects for national health facilities specializing in the treatment of breast cancer through psychological support, physical and social rehabilitation, prevention, training, and palliative care. In the 2018 edition of Corri la Vita, Salvatore Ferragamo was awarded as Best Performer for bringing the highest number of participants to the event and raising the most funds.
In collaboration with Corri la Vita Onlus, in 2018 Salvatore Ferragamo S.p.A. donated two innovative items of equipment for early breast cancer diagnosis to the Careggi Hospital in Florence. The equipment, a latest- generation digital mammography machine and a modern biopsy table, were donated to the Careggi Breast Diagnostic Unit, one of the most important in Tuscany, thereby renewing the technology equipment.
