Join our annual Global Run, 2023 edition: Support refugees by donating to Yoga and Sport With Refugees and help us to continue building happier and healthier communities through the power of sport. We invite you to get involved! Run alongside us on the 10th of September by joining one our organised runs (Berlin, Athens, Paris and more) or simply going out and running with friends in solidarity with people on the move.
Refugees in Greece are facing human rights violations everyday, from illegal push backs in the Aegean sea, the creation of prison-like accommodation and lack of access to sanitation and food. Restricted freedoms lead to increased mental and physical health issues. Due to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine, Turkey, Syria and Sudan, many organizations are understandably redirecting their funding away from Greece, leaving us with the challenge of continuing to fund the activities for our community.
This campaign aims to raise awareness of the challenging conditions faced by people on the move every day. This event is a direct reflection of our cause as an organisation. By participating you are joining our community and contributing in turn to our active provision of healthy safe spaces across Greece and in France. The emphasis on community being a core value of our organisation and approach to solidarity.
This event is an opportunity for our community to come together in a healthy way and continue to build on our relationships. Another of our long-term goals is promoting integration through sport by practicing inclusively with locals, visiting volunteers and internationally displaced people, we bridge cultural gaps and gain mutual understanding and respect. Having this event occur around the world showcases the progress we have made and continue to build regarding integration.
