On 18 May, Crown Prince Frederik will host a special award ceremony for the Crown Prince Frederik Fund.

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary will also host a dinner in the evening for the board members and partners of the Fund.

His Royal Highness will begin the day in Aalborg by running One Mile; then he will go to Aarhus, Esbjerg and Odense. The Crown Prince will end the day in Copenhagen and Frederiksberg, running 10 km through the city.
