Freedom Charity Run 2014
After the successful completion of the Lions Charity Run from Szczecin (Stettin) to Hamburg in 2013 (www.lions-charity-run.com) Lions and Rotarians want to organize another cross-country charity run.
25 years after the Fall of the Wall, there is a special occasion to celebrate the friendship and solidarity among European neighbors. A common run from Gdańsk (Danzig) to Berlin shall commemorate this historic event and the political change occurred.
The "Freedom Charity Run" will start on 24 September 2014 at the former Lenin Shipyard in Gdańsk (Danzig), the city of the Solidarność and will end after 9 days and a distance of 621 km on 3 October 2014 at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, the city in which the Wall fell.
We run – We serve
With the "Freedom Charity Run 2014" charitable purposes are pursued:
The proceeds will be used for the benefit of children and young people in Eastern Europe who are in need, as far as possible in the Ukraine.
Individuals, businesses and institutions that support this run with cash or in kind donations are particularly mentioned on this website. For each support a donation receipt can be issued. Similarly, a promotion by sponsoring is possible (against invoice).
Our experiences during the tour we put together in our tour diary together with some chosen pictures.
The run will start in Gdańsk (Danzig) on 24 September 2014 at 10:00 o'clock.
The route of 621 km will take us through Kościerzyna, Chojnice, Piła, Oborniki, Poznań, Międzychód, Gorzów Wielkopolski, Kostrzyn nad Odrą and Strausberg.
