“Run Your Good Goals True” in Finland's biggest running events; The Helsinki City Running Day and the Naisten Kymppi

The Finnish Athletics Federation in collaboration with the Charitable sector is for the first time in Finland allowing runner’s an option to fundraiser for their favorite charity as part of their participation in their popular running events.

Helsinki City Run and LiiKe Sports & Development collect old running shoes during HCR 2016. The recycled shoes are donated to Tanzanian girl schools in Mtwara-Mikindan region.

The girls in the chosen schools are having many obstacles to continue their studies. Early marriages and the poverty of the families have led to many school dropouts.
