Employees of the company Eco-Express Service (leading partner of the Get ready project) Alina Nazarova and Ekaterina Chebykina decided to keep up with the head of the company, who crossed the Bosphorus on July 21, and take part in the sports festival "Do not be afraid of sport", in which a charity race was held in support of the individual mentoring program for children in a difficult life situation "Older Brothers Older Sisters". The funds raised in the framework of the race will be used to support sports projects of the Fund, including the creation of a football team of orphanages, social adaptation of the child through running and martial arts.


Athletes ran a distance of 1.5 km and 3 km to choose from. Even the youngest participants came to support this initiative and participated in the children's race for 200 m. And at the finish no one was left without a reward – each participant of the race received a commemorative medal. At the distance, the runners were waiting not only for the support of fans, but also for a beautiful view of the modern "Mega Park" with equipped areas and paths against the background of blooming greenery.


In addition, the festival program included open training in boxing, football, rugby, lacrosse, petanque and other sports, lectures on the topic of a healthy lifestyle and urban ecology, as well as a children's area and many interesting activities for parents and children. Alina and Ekaterina were impressed by lacrosse - a contact sports game between the two teams using a small rubber ball and a stick in the form of a butterfly net. The game was invented by American Indians to train warriors and resolve disputes between tribes. In St. Petersburg you can come for free training on lacrosse with professional players, where they will provide you with the necessary equipment. You can register at:
