THE STORY:

I decided to start fundraising to help raise awareness and deliver support from people of America to the citizens of my home country, Ukraine. Ukrainians have been fighting for freedom since November 29th, 2013 when massive anti-government protests began on the streets of Kiev.

At this time, due to the recent clashes and protests in Ukraine, more than 100 people were killed by the government; thousands of protesters were seriously injured and desperately needed medical help. It breaks my heart that so many people had to give their lives in the fight for democratic future of Ukraine.

As a runner and an activist, I hope you could help me raise awareness and funds to help support the victims' families and the children who lost their parents. They need actions now.

I have run and volunteered at many events (from 5K to marathons and Spartan races). I have decided to run 26.2 races for the people of Ukraine (for those of you who don't know, a marathon distance is 26.2 miles). These are the races I've selected so far:
