Christmas Update from YSR
Dear Friends and Supporters
I hope this message finds you well. As 2023 comes to a close, we at Yoga and Sport With Refugees (YSR) have been reflecting on the past year.
This year we have achieved several remarkable milestones, including our multi-location annual Global Run Campaign. On the 10th of September, the YSR community was united with one purpose - to raise awareness of the challenging conditions faced by people on the move every day. In Athens alone, over a hundred participants gathered to run 10k together. Across the globe, thousands of individuals, from New York to Paris, ran in solidarity, joining in with friends and local running clubs.
We are proud to announce that this year’s Global Run Campaign has raised €1,792 so far (€5,015 in total including our New York event which took place earlier in the year). All the money raised will go towards continuing and resourcing our classes and supporting our amazing coaches.
To find out more about upcoming events and keep up to date with YSR’s work follow us via our social media platforms. If you are interested in hosting your own Global Run event next year please feel free to email us at email@example.com.
As 2024 commences we are looking forward to continuing and expanding our activities. With a constantly growing community, throughout the year we have diversified the activities on offer. We now facilitate a huge range of sports including climbing, kickboxing, mixed martial arts and zumba.
As we enter into our 7th year of being operational, it is important to reiterate that without the generosity of supporters like you our projects would not be able to take place. Since 2016, your donations have made a tangible impact on the lives of thousands of displaced people - providing them with friendship, community and impactful training programmes. Thank you once again for your support!
Lastly, we would like to remind you that if you’re looking for a Christmas gift, we have recently updated our merchandise and you can check out our shop here!
