The Running Hearts charity race, founded by Polina Kitsenko and Natalya Vodyanova in 2015 in support of the Naked Hearts Children's Assistance Fund programs, will be held in Moscow for the fourth time. In 2017, Sberbank joined the initiative of the Fund - after the merger of two large running projects, the Green Running Hearts marathon appeared.
The last race became one of the most effective sports charity events - we managed to collect a record amount of 50 million rubles. All funds were transferred to the Naked Hearts Fund for the development of an early assistance project for young children with developmental disabilities and their families. Thanks to this, more than 500 families in five cities got access to free support services in family support centers, early intervention centers, a center for child psychoneurology and kindergartens, where the Naked Hearts project is being implemented.
This year, May 27, the “Running Hearts” Green Marathon will be held again in 54 cities of Russia, as well as in other countries, where Sberbank is represented. According to the organizers, more than 150 thousand participants will launch. The main race will take place in Moscow, on Vasilyevsky Descent. Three distances are planned - 4.2 km, 10 km and a half marathon of 21.
1 km. Traditionally, there will also be competitions at a distance of 10 km for people with disabilities who use a wheelchair.
The cost of participation at distances of 4.2 km and 10 km - 1,500 rubles, at the half marathon - 2,000 rubles, for people with disabilities - for free. Additional information and registration is available on the official website of the race runninghearts.
