The foundation will be the hosts of the Andrey & Julia Dashin’s Foundation 1KM Youth race, which will give the opportunity to thousands of children and teenagers in Cyprus to participate in this grand sporting event.
Andrey and Julia Dashin’s Foundation has already become an established name in regards to their contributions to the overall Cypriot community and mainly for their impressive efforts to provide the children in need with better opportunities, support and all the extra help they need to achieve bigger goals. By sponsoring the Limassol Marathon, the foundation aims to expand the fun for children, adults and teams that come together for this unique and praised event.
Julia Dashina, one of the founders, stated: “Ever since it began, the OPAP Limassol Marathon has been an ideal platform where children and adults can learn and practice the values of athleticism, sportsmanship and teamwork. The Andrey and Julia Dashin’s Foundation 1KM Youth Race is the perfect representation of everything our foundation stands for; equal opportunity for children of all backgrounds to enjoy a day of fun with their parents and peers. As well as giving them the chance to kick-start a healthy life-style through the simple act of running.”
The Andrey & Julia Dashin’s Foundation 1KM Youth Race will take place on the first day of the event and is open for children from the ages of 6 up to 16. All participants will be rewarded with free gifts to honour and commemorate their participation and hard-work.
The head of growth operations for the OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO, Andreas Spyrou, thanked the foundation for their contribution saying: “Thanks to the kind support of the Andrey and Julia Dashin’s Foundation, thousands of children and teenagers will have the opportunity to participate in Cyprus’ greatest sporting event, which will guarantee an exciting and wonderful day outside in the seaside streets of Limassol and will hopefully give them the perfect boost to continue exercising during their school years, and maybe even the rest of their lives.”
