21K virtual run4ukraine
Sport has the power to unite people in quite a unique way. When I contacted my friend elite runner Alessandro (nickname: Sherpa) to become the ambassador of a 21K virtual run to support Ukraine, I was far from guessing that he was himself very busy gathering supplies and delivering those directly from Italy to Ukraine driving vans with his team. He took time away from work and racing to run an incredible campaign.
Guess what, my other friend Eszter Csillag an elite runner from Hungary based in Hong Kong in now in Budapest working at a refugee centre to welcome Ukrainian civilians.
Alessandro is raising funds to continue this mission to delivery necessities to Ukraine. Your registration fees will go to Alessandro’s fundraising to buy supplies including medicines, food and daily necessities (thermal blankets, men’s underwear, protective gloves etc), power banks, torches, batteries, load them in vans and drive them directly to Ukraine with the help of Ukrainian friends. The needs are constantly evolving therefore, with your help, the team will be able to bring exactly what is needed at the right time.
