our cause

Gyumri Run will mark the launch of World Vision’s “local sponsorship program”, which aims at improving the well-being of most vulnerable children with the help of funds from individual and corporate donors.

The Running event is organised by World Vision Armenia through “Caring for Equality” project. The project seeks to create an environment where girls and boys are born and valued equally. The programme will support the national policy against gender-based violence and prenatal sex selection. The programme will be implemented on community level as well, aiming to change harmful social norms.

The participation fees will be directed to purchase sportswear for most vulnerable children in Gyumri, encouraging equal participation in sports for girls and boys.

The run  is organised in partnership with Yerevan Half Marathon, TriClub Yerevan and Repat Armenia Foundation.
