Just the Woman I Am 2023

JUST THE WOMAN I AM (JTWIA) will be back on Sunday, March 5th, with the participation, as usual, of Politecnico di Torino, Università di Torino and CUS - Centro Universitario Sportivo torinese.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, JTWUA consists of an yearly public run - walk organized in coincidence with the Women’s Day. The aim is to collect funds for university research on cancer, promoting prevention, correct lifestyles, inclusion and gender parity.
Your participation will be valuable to sustain health, sport and gender parity. Dont’ miss the opportunity to live the streets full of people moving in a rose-colored river! You will support your health (walking or running for 5km) and university research on cancer. Departure will be from Piazza Castello, Torino, on Sunday, March 5, at 4 p.m.

Register here to join PoliTO Team, by selecting the standard registration. All participants registered up to February 8th will receive the WoMen@PoliTO t-shirt.

You will also be able to create your own team – with free, customized, one-color t-shirts – if reaching the minimun of 20 participants among you, your relatives, friends, colleagues (e.g. coming from student associations). Contact us at up to February 8th: insert your contact details and all participants’ names, naming the e-mail as follows “Team XXX (team name) refistration”.

Please note that, once passed February 8th, you will be able to register individually here, but not to ask for the customized t-shirt.

Additionally, if not available in presence, feel free to participate online, choosing your personal 5km itinerary or one among the JTWIA ON THE ROAD itineraries (available on JTWIA website) and sharing your experience on the social media: a way to be “distant yet united” all around the world.
Registration kits and welcome bags will be distributed after February 20th (additional information available once registered).

PoliTO students registered up to February 8th will be entitled to the subsidised registration fee of 15 € (rising at 20 € after deadline expires), while PoliTO teaching and administrative staff will be asked to donate 20 € individually or as a team.

All registration fees will contribute to research projects and grants, also supporting public training within conferences, meetings, seminars and webinars.

Besides the run of March 5th, JTWIA will also host the prevention and wellbeing village in Piazza San Carlo, Torino: a physical and digital space offering free pre-screenings, consultations, conferences and webinars. It will be active on 3-5 March from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
