what drives you despite lockdown and pandemic?
Our ESN-Bonn-Team found a common ritual in jogging to start the day with full energy!
We formed a virtual running group to cheer and motivate each other from a distance. This community got us through this strange time.
But, COVID-19 has also shown us how grateful we are to have a home, food, and medical care especially in a time like this. This is not a matter of course. Too many people are forced to flee their homes due to crises in their home countries and are still looking for a safe home.
The volunteers of Sea-Watch help people who are in danger at sea in their search for a new home. For us as an international association, it is important to take responsibility beyond the borders of Europe. Therefore, we would like to run as many kilometers as possible together with you and support the work of Sea-Watch.
Between Friday, May 28th and Sunday, May 30th, you can jog, hike, or walk to collect miles for our Charity Run.
!!! Important: You have to track your route! Either via App or Smartwatch - and send us a screenshot of your route and the kilometres !
Till 31 May, 6 pm we will accept screenshots via Instagram, Facebook, mail, or Whatsapp. (Find the links below)
You can also motivate others to join in by sharing your route on Instagram or Facebook and using the #ESNBonnRUN in your story or in a post! We would be very happy if you link us and we can share your picture in our story! :)
For each proven kilometer ESN Bonn donates 40 cents to the organization "Sea-Watch" to support sea rescue.
As this run takes place among several ESN sections all over Germany, we would like to run at least 1031 km together with you. That would be the distance from north to south, right across Germany. Then we would have reached our maximum donation of 415€.
Every additional kilometre run is a sign of solidarity. In addition, each and every one of you is of course invited to donate via our fundraising campaign (link will follow in the next few days).
If you want to cheer on other runners or want to hear some "Wohooos" during your run, please join our virtual running group via Runtastic.
Let us make a difference together!
