On November 24th I am running my first marathon, which I decided to run in support of the children in Tajikistan in orphanages and give them a chance to become the part of the Christmas/New Year miracles.
All the collected funds in support of the maraphone will go to the Russian Drama Theatre in Chkalovsk, Tajikistan to provide free Christmas / New Year Performances to children in the town/ regional orphanages and families, who can not afford to buy the tickets.
By collecting these funds, we will be able to not just give a chance to the children in Tajikistan to see the winter miracles and be a part of the fairy story, but also to support the Russian theatre in Tajikistan, which lacks funds and support to continue its work.
I had worked in this theatre for 6 years during my teen years and grateful for giving me this experience and opportunity to fulfil my dreams.
I remember how we as a kids never had money to go to these New Year performances, and I remeber the happy faces of those children we gave these performances to, when I was working there.
To keep the smiles on the faces of the children, to keep the work of the dozens people in the theatre and restore the hopes and dreams of both, I hope this initiative will at least a bit make the world a better place.
Funds will be transferred directly to the theatre at the beginning of December to make sure they have time to arrange the dates and logictics to visit the orphanages closer to the New Year.
Any donation will be very much appreciated.
Marathon is very challenging for me but I want to perceive it as a part of my efforts to help people to pursue their dreams too.
