All are welcome to take part in this annual sport event – 5 km RUN dedicated to the Day of Dignity and Freedom, celebrated on November 21 in Ukraine and established in 2014 as an anniversary of the start of the Orange Revolution and the Revolution of Dignity.

After the run participants will continue celebrating and socialising over a nice breakfast/lunch in the café nearby. Even if you are not a runner, please come to support our team and bring Ukrainian colours and symbols with you!

This is a second year this run is organised in London, which main purpose is to develop a charitable, cultural and sporting tradition in order to unite Ukrainians and their friends, and contribute to the development and implementation of various projects in Ukraine.

The event is completely charitable, non-profit and voluntary and this year we would like to ask all participants to support and make donations for the charitable project “Learning for the future: helping disadvantaged children in Ukraine” by Ukraine Charity and Ukrainian EBRD Community – https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/UkrainianEBRDcommunity

Few words from organisers:

Please join us for the run and also support our charity project ‘Learning for the future: helping disadvantaged children in Ukraine’


Donation of 10 pounds will pay for a volunteer to teach one kid in a group at their home village or town for 3 weeks, with just a 100-pounds donation, we can send one kid from a conflict zone on a 2-week educational programme including social, cultural activities, medical examination and wellness care, and with 1000 pounds we can bring international volunteers and organise a 3-week English learning after-school camp for 100 kids at their school.

Kids are our future – lets make children happier and the future better!

The event is organized by a network of sports events – parkrun, Ukrainian Charity and Young City Club of Ukrainian-British City Club (UBCC).
