In September Zhytomyr Community Fund together with its partners will hold the International Run Supporting Children in Ukraine “Back to School”.
The goal of the International Run Supporting Children in Ukraine “Back to School” is to unite the people of Zhytomyr, friends of Zhytomyr and Ukraine in different parts of the world to help organize a proper educational process for students in Ukraine under the conditions of a full-scale war.
The initiator and coordinator of the the International Run Supporting Children in Ukraine “Back to School” is Zhytomyr Community Fund charity organization.
The organizers in Zhytomyr are Zhytomyr Community Fund, the “Make Me Tri” sports club, and the Zhytomyr City Council.
The central location of the International Run Supporting Children in Ukraine “Back to School” is Zhytomyr. Its main goal is to buy furniture and equipment to arrange educational premises, where the students of Zhytomyr Lyceum No. 25, which was destroyed on March 4, 2022 as a result of rocket fire by Russian invaders, will temporarily study.
Sister cities and friends of Zhytomyr and Zhytomyr Community Fund are also involved in the organization of the International Run Supporting Children in Ukraine “Back to School”. They will hold similar races in their own cities.
NGO “Renovation of Lyceum No. 25” will also join the “Back to School Run”.
The charity individual run involves overcoming a distance of 5 or 3 km.
WARNING! Considering the high risk and danger caused by possible airstrikes of the Russian occupiers, in Zhytomyr the “Back to School Run” is planned to be held in an online format, although the organizers also consider an offline “Back to School Run” as possible, in case of obtaining the approval of the Zhytomyr Military Civil Administration and relevant security agencies.
The foreign partner cities of the “Back to School Run” can organize an offline race, which involves covering a distance of 5 or 3 km on the official date of the race along a specified route, or participate online and cover the selected distance within the next two weeks from the date of the event.
When registering to participate in the “Back to School Run”, one can choose either offline or online format.
In case of online participation, the participant covers a distance of 5 or 3 km along a self-chosen route within two weeks. One should overcome the distance in the period from September 04, 2022 to September 18, 2022.
