Kilometrydobra.p_TheColourRun_fot.K.Pacholski--46Last week, and in particular the Sunday of 5th June, passed very quickly for us, but also very positively. And we have pictures to prove it!

In accordance with the rules of the Miles of Good campaign, we prepared an exceptional final of this year’s fundraiser.

Together with the exceptional Smile of Hope Association (Stowarzyszenie Uśmiech Nadziei), we lined up zloty coins already for several days before the action, which we had received in the weeks preceding the final. Anyone who did this for several hours felt tingling in their fingertips for a long time afterwards. Thanks to the Donators, we had several thousand zloty coins to line up in 1-metre rows!

Kilometrydobra.p_TheColourRun_fot.K.Pacholski--9On Sunday, 5th June, we met on Malta with the runners of The Colour Run and… we still lined up coins into metres! The weather didn’t fail us, and neither did the Runners. Alone, in couples, families, groups and even on crutches and wheelchairs – they gathered with us, so that they could really add their zloty to our action. As you can see on the site  www.kilometrydobra.pl/organization/dzieci-kenia, even after the final there have been people for whom it is important to help children.

Thanks to all present, we raised 5088 zł for the construction of a children’s home in Nyanuki in Kenya. We still have much to gather, as the full cost of the construction is 120,000 USD, but after such a day, we are hoping for the best. We thank all Donators very much for their support and every added inch.

We have 115,64 metres of good altogether!

We also thank our Volunteers, who bravely supported us by helping collect funds, lined up coins together with our Donators and took care of our whole stand and its safety. Particular thanks for help in this day are deserved to (in random order :P): Kasia, Iza, Asia, Marlena, Jarek and Łukasz, as well as Ewa, Marek and Krzysztof for a wonderful souvenir in the form of pictures. Kinga and Magda, as well as Natalka and Miłek with Families – thank you for participating in the run – you deserve a medal!

We invited the band Drum Work to the course, who made time more pleasant for the Runners and set the pace. African pace :)

The gratitude of the children, as well as our own, and the positive vibrations of the Final during the Run, will accompany all of You in the coming months.

For Those Interested – what is the Miles of Good Campaign?

Idea

The primary goal of the campaign is the collection of funds for goals set by partner organizations. At the same time, we prove that more can be achieved by working together than by one person. There are many good reasons to help, therefore we cooperate with organizations that collect money for: social goals, sport, culture, education, environment, church. If you decide to aid those who need it with your coin, it is guaranteed that your money is well spent – it is you who chooses the type of aid, the organization you help as well as the goal you support.

Why “Miles of Good”?
“Good”, because the primary message of the action is help for those in need. All gathered funds will reach specific partner organizations and will be spent on their goals. “Miles”, because for several days before the final of the campaign, the organizations change the money they gathered during 3 months for 1 zloty coins and arrange them into lines. In this way we prove that good can be measured. An additional attraction is the attempt to beat a Guinness record. Partner organizations of Miles of Good leave behind competition and line up good together. To achieve a record, we need 75 km. Every zloty counts, you can add it even during the final. If you do that, you become part of a global charitable campaign and you participate in beating a record.
