On 13 October, the Social Mission Diakonia of the Bassarabian Metropolitan Church organized the Children’s Marathon, an event attended by more than 1,000 children. The Children’s Marathon is a unique event that, for the fifth consecutive year, turns a regular run of running into a gesture of solidarity.
“Thanks to the involvement of the Champions of Good, the Community Center in Roşu, Cahul will benefit from 6 months of functioning. The 25 children who daily come to the Center will have a warm meal and extra-curricular activities meant to help them live a full childhood and continue their journey to school together with the other children. “- Igor Belei, Director of the Social Mission “Diakonia”
All of the 1000 participants ran to prove they stand for other children in difficulty. And each parent was urged to convert the distance run by the child into a symbolic donation of 0.25 money per meter run.
“I came to run for health, but also to support the children who do not have the same opportunities as me. I really like the event, I met more friends, and even made new friends. “- Anastasia, Champion of Good
In addition to the actual race, the children had creative workshops, gift raffles, soap bubbles, UHappy animator games, and a dance and music concert by artistic groups, “Music Drops”.
