End of September Free Sofia Tour took part in the event The Running Wonder. It is a Youth charitable steeplechase in support of the elderly people. It has been organized with the support of Sofia municipality and aims to gather funds for elderly, lonely and sick people. The participants are children and youth from different educational institutions in Sofia and other volunteers. The idea is that every participant has to find a sponsor before the event and this sponsor has to donate 1 BGN for every lap. The project aims to promote physical activity, creativeness and social engagement amongst the youth.
Of course FST couldn’t have missed their opportunity to make a run for a social cause. So 5 of our teammates gathered at the early morning on the 29th of September and prepared themselves to make a run for it. We gathered for a warm up and when everybody was ready we lined up for the start.
When the pistol was shot and the official start was given, we started the race. While doing the laps we could see youth from different ages around us, even youngsters at the age of 4-5 running right by our side. In our team everybody was prepared for the run and was ready to give as much as possible.
At the end exhausted but satisfied from the result we allowed ourselves a relaxing break. We went to celebrate the successful finish on a so deserved ice-cream in the park, enjoying the sunny day.
