RUN FOR PEACE
We thank Europe for supporting Ukraine as it strives for peace! The Run for Peace project is anunprecedented sporting event of international scope, which seeks to unite citizens from over 40 countries in their desire for stability, peace and security. Our joint objectives are to successfully complete the marathon distance, meet government and business representatives, NGOs and the Ukrainian diaspora, and pray for peace in Ukraine and the whole world. 2 RunFor Peace 84 days16,585km 42European capitals 20 km every day per participant 12runners Starts in Kyiv onMarch21,2015
About the project We will take steps nobody has ever taken before. On March 21, the anniversary of the signing of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the European Union, a team of 12 volunteers will run through all the countries of Europe. They will all, in turn, conquer unbelievable distances, regardless of the time of day, weather conditions or any hurdles they may encounter. They will attempt to visit all the European capitals in 84 days, running an estimated 17,000 kilometres in total. We will be grateful for any support we receive in the cities we visit. This is a testing time for Ukraine and we encourage everybody to join us on this run, whatever distance they can manage, from a few metres to tens of kilometres. In every city, we plan to meet representatives of official bodies, business organisations, civil society, and the Ukrainian diaspora. Together we will pray for peace in Ukraine and all over the world. This endeavour is supported by the personnel of Ukrainian embassies and by our sponsors. We are convinced that the Run for Peace will strengthen ties between Ukraine and the European Union and demonstrate that we are one. Together we can overcome any obstacles. Together we are stronger! 3
