The sixth Hostivice RUN charity race was an amazing experience. Nearly one thousand adult and children runners chose between 5k, 10k or 21k races and we saw unbelievable amount of will, power and joy.
The HRUN supports every year selected charity projects. This charitable aspect of the event also underlines the original idea of Hostivice RUN: “Every legend has its own beginning.” By participating, you will become a legend for us and for you. Helping others is important, or even essential. This year, the runners have supported the following extraordinary and amazing projects with amount of 90 360 CZK.
The Cesta domů non-profit organization provides registered health and social services that enable people to live where they want at the end of their lives, with the support of specialized palliative care if they need it.
The Můj nový život (My New Life) project was created jointly by the pediatric oncologist Dr. Lucie Cingrošová and the photographer Kamila Berndorffová to increase public interest in children treated for cancer and to change the attitude of our society towards children suffering from cancer and their families.
The Parent Projects is an organization founded by parents whose children were born with Duchenne / Becker muscular dystrophy. This serious disease causes a wasting and gradual loss of active muscle mass.
All Within My Hands In 2017, the legendary American band Metallica founded the All Within My Hands Foundation, through which it helps other charity organizations it works with. Thanks to its popularity, fame and media following the band contributes to various projects around the world, whether it is to integrate war veterans back into daily life, to fight hunger, or to promote education.
That is not the end of the story. We need to mention the 66-year-old runner, Mrs. Hana Vackova. She had a dream. It was about to participate and finish the Hostivice RUN 21k race. The dream come true and she is the real winner with amazing time 03:06:20.
This event inspired all of us who feel that we need to give back. Run with us, stay with us and become a legend!
