‘POAS8 means "POAS – OCHO’. Poás8 presents 8 different ways to join us on the event on the 18e of March 2017 in de surrounding area of the Restaurant Freddo Fresas in San Pedro of Poas. Start at 7.30 am. Look at the 8 different ways above.

Poás8 organizes alongside Fundacáncer an event for all age groups that combines sport, recreation and information. At this event, participants walk, run or bike up the mountain of the Poás Volcano under the motto ’un desafío, una lucha’ ‘a challenge, a fight’ this, to help others in the fight against cancer.

More than just a sporting event; Poás8 is an activity where there is something for everyone. An important part of the event is the informational talks given by the local health care authorities and Fundacáncer. The talks are meant to engage participants in understanding more about this disease; how to recognize it, detect it and other important facts. Furthermore, there will be the Clinica Biblica  bus where for breast cancer screening.

Alongside informational talks, there will be a possibility to enjoy many activities such as zumba, hula-hula, bouncy castle and music. It will be possible to purchase, food and drinks and other goods at the feria such as honey, coffee, chocolate and other local products. A part of the profit on the sale of these goods will go to the fundraising efforts of Poás8.

It is a day to get together and enjoy. To be inspired and to help each other an excellent example of the Pura vida mentality!

The event will take place in the surrounding area of the Restaurant Freddo Fresas in San Pedro of Poás. The start signal will be at 7.30 to begin with the sporting events; these will last until 12 o’clock. The feria and other activities start at 9.00 am and will carry on until 1:00 pm.

De sporting events have an entrance fee of 10.000 colones. All of the other activities we ask you a voluntary contribution. There will be opportunity to donate as it is a fundraising event, in this way people may give what is possible for them in solidarism with cancer patients. All of the proceeds of the Poás8 event will go to support different projects in the fight against cancer. This is how Poás8 is sponsoring 150 breast cancer screenings; which will be carried out by Fundacáncer in the San Pedro de Poás area.

As in earlier editions of the Poás8 event bike riders, runners, and walkers can take the challenge of climbing up the mountain of the Poás. 8 times may be attempted of course but 1 time is also good enough. This year a walk around trails is introduced. You may participate on your own but also in teams with family, friends, classmates, and colleagues. By participating together you can help more cancer patients.
