Summary

Runday's aim is to change lives through regular, community-led events with a focus on participation in physical activity. Our mission is therefore to get 1 million people regularly running or walking 5km. Runday provides opportunities for people to regularly participate (through running, walking and volunteering) in a non-competitive and non-threatening environment, supports community cohesion and development and promotes a range of health related benefits.

Challenge

Ukrainian communities are struggling from decades of underinvestment, mismanagement and more recently the affects of the conflict with Russia. As a result, the local sports facilities are in terrible condition and citizens have very few opportunities to participate in community sports events. This affects both the health of individuals (life expectancy for Ukrainian men is just over 66 years), and also the health of local communities.

Solution

Runday provides opportunities for people to regularly participate (through running, walking and volunteering) in a non-competitive and non-threatening environment, supports community cohesion and development and promotes a range of health related benefits.

Long-Term Impact

Runday's aim is to change lives through regular, community-led events with a focus on participation in physical activity. Our mission is therefore to get 1 million people regularly running or walking 5km.
