The charity event, which took place on Kyiv Day for the 24th time, was attended by National Guard's rapid response brigade.

Upon registration, each person donates 100 hryvnia (approx. $4). All funds are then spent on the purchase of medical equipment for the Scientific-Practical Medical Center of Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery. Incidentally, former patients of the center were among the runners - as many as 350 people! This year's run was attended by some 9,000 people. And it all began with just 153 runners.
