GLOBAL RUN 2024

JOIN OUR #RunforFreedom

OnSeptember 07th 2024, the Yoga and Sport with Refugees community is getting together around the world 🌍 to spread awareness,have fun and raise valuable 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!

What is the Global Run?

The Global Run is a yearly fundraising and solidarity event held in all Yoga and Sport with Refugees locations. Namely in Athens, Lesvos, Ioannina and Paris and all over the world.

The day involves thousands of people uniting for one purpose – to spread awareness, have fun and raise valuable funds for people on the move!

Why run with us?

In Greece and France there is a huge lack of safe spaces for displaced people. With many arriving on the islands on a daily basis, we and many other NGO’s are doing their best to create happier and healthier communities as well as advocacy for the rights of those fleeing war and conflict.

Especially now, 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.

Where does the money go?

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

Activists and Athletes around the world ave joined the move to show solidarity with displaced people.

Join the Global Run and support us by fundraising for our activities as well as raising awareness about the situation for asylum seekers in Europe.
