Fundraising for RestartU project on 8th of November, 2019
We are glad to inform you that in the frame of the gala dinner successfully organized on Nov. 8, 2019, in the residence of the Ambassador of Austria in the Russian Federation HE Dr. Johannes Eigner, for the benefit of the project “Restart U”, this year in cooperation with the fund “More Than Able”, we have raised money to finance equipment and a full 6 month cycle of training for 3 para-athletes, in view of their participation to the Moscow Marathon 2020.
The money raised through the charity contribution of the guests of the evening and of the sponsors, and through the auction, enabled us to make a significant step towards the realization of our ambitious goal: create a “support and organization network” in Marathon cities of Russia where Rotary is present, for the participation of para-athletes.
We take this opportunity to thank again personally the Ambassador of Austria in Russia for his trust and support to our project, and our permanent sponsors, who became real friends of “RestartU”, for their continuous openhearted support.
The motto of Rotary, “Service above self”, has been greatly illustrated by the involvement of people who united for the sake and success of the project, with open minds and hearts.
It has been a pleasure to receive so many positive feedbacks about the atmosphere and the program of the evening from our guests, and from the Ambassador himself.
