EITB Maratoia: Project open to Basque society
Through EITB Maratoia, EITB assumes for another year an active role as agent of transformation social in alliance with the main institutions in the fields of health and health research in the Basque Country, within the framework of their duty and commitment as public service regarding the Causes and the issues that most concern society.
EITB Maratoia has become a project open to Basque society that seeks the direct participation of all citizens through two essential lines: on the one hand, raise money destined to the investigation of the disease, and on the other, to carry out a information and awareness campaign.
Within the framework of this information and awareness campaign, this year EITB Maratoia has also had a participatory action that has revolved around the memories, since, as the motto of this edition reads, Alzheimer’s is a heart disease, because it erases the memory and the most beloved memories of the people. Thus, citizens have been encouraged to share your memories and, of course, to send their versions. On the web a digital space dedicated to memory in which we can see, save and share the memories that we do not want to forget: photos, audio notes, videos and texts … The song “How beautiful it will be”, of the ZETAK group, has put the soundtrack to those memories and to this edition. One more year familiar faces, anonymous people, senior centers and many and many schools have thrown themselves into action. EITB Maratoia continues to receive memories and versions, which will be posted on the web.
Finally, EITB wants thank the support and collaboration of institutions, associations and companies that have joined the EITB Maratoia 2021 campaign: The Department of Health of the Basque Government, The Department of Education of the Basque Government, Ampo, Arin, Bilbao Port, Boslan, Caixabank, DanoBat Group, Dikar, Basque Technology Parks, Euskastel Foundation, Fagor, Erreka, Indar Ingeteam Group, Irizar, Laboral Kutxa, Metro Bilbao, Mondragon Unibertsitatea, Mutualia, Osakidetza, Saunier Duval, Smurfit Kappa, Tesa Assa Abloy, Vaillant and Vital Fundazioa.
