GLOBAL RUN 2024

JOIN OUR #RunforFreedom

In September 2024, the Yoga and Sport with Refugees community is getting together around the world 🌍 to raise awareness and funds to support athletes on the move! Join us in your city and let’s run together! 

 

 

All welcome! Suitable for anyone – everyday running groups, professional athletes or occasional joggers!

WHY DO WE RUN?

The Global Run is a yearly event held in all YSR locations (Lesvos, Athens, Ioannina and Paris), along with other cities around the world, to show solidarity with people on the move.

The day involves thousands of people uniting for

one purpose – to spread awareness, have fun and raise valuable funds for people on the move!

All money raised will go to YSR programs, classes and coaches, who build important skills, strength, resilience, fitness and purpose amongst their own communities.

WHAT IS HAPPENING FOR REFUGEES IN GREECE?

In Greece, the influx of asylum seekers is again increasing, many arrive in Greek islands with no support and facing illegal push backs. The numbers in the camps are going up and camp residents are being moved to the Greek mainland without ongoing support (food and clothing). Not-for-profit organisations are finding all possible ways to help.

With the ongoing difficulty, people on the move in Greece are still highly reliant on solidarity and civil society actions. We are passionate about providing the resources and community access for people to unite through the power of sport.

HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?

(1) A solidarity run:

organize a group of friends, family members or team mates to run with us. Set a time and date, meet, donate to YSR, and don’t forget to capture your run and share with us! #GlobalRun

(2) Plan or join a local fun run event:
Find a nearby Global Run event, or share information about the Global Run 2024 with your local sport clubs and running groups. Plan the event, publicise on social media and collect registrations (+ donations to support YSR’s mission)!
