Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – More than 400 people of all ages participated in the second edition of the Race for Inclusion, held on Sunday, September 10 in the Puerto Vallarta Hotel Zone. Organized by the Andrea 3.21 Foundation with the support of the Mexican Association of Insurance and Fiscal Agents (AMASFAC), this initiative aimed to raise funds to benefit people with Down syndrome, intellectual disabilities and neuromotor disorders.

The 400 participants raised a total of 165,150 pesos, which will be used to continue supporting those who need it most. But beyond the numbers, the Race for Inclusion stood out for its ability to unite the community around a noble cause.
