Bangladeshi and international runners throughout the world are invited to unite for a FREE virtual race to raise donations and show care and love for those in need! The race will be open September 25, 26 & 27, 2020 (GMT+6) for 72hrs, so pick your best time to lace up. Once you register we’ll email you a race Bib to print. When you finish your race, upload your time and a photo and share on Facebook. We will also send you a finisher certificate. We’re all in this together!
As part of the Bangladesh running community, we at RUNBANGLA strive to set an example of charity for our sport and community. While the pandemic has devastated many corners of our global community, we have chosen to focus our efforts to create a virtual race in support of one very special group. We are teaming up with our charity partner, the ADAMYA Foundation in Dhaka, which has supported the specially abled community since 2011, helping individuals find their special talent and train them to enter the work force alongside the rest of society.
“In the best of times the world most often places differently abled people at the back of the line, forcing them to struggle and work harder than most to open the doors of society and be valued and appreciated for the real contributions they can make in the workplace. Now, with the pandemic of Covid-19, as entire populations are feeling the adverse effects on health, family, and jobs, the lines of those in need grows longer, and so too does the distance to the front for those already at the back.”
DONATIONS for the ADAMYA Foundation
While the race is FREE we encourage those who are able to make a contribution to our charity partner. Any amount is greatly appreciated and will make a difference.
