“Uniting children through education and positive sport experiences”


Dear sportsmen and amateurs of running! 

We invite you to participate at the international Marathon of Kyrgyzstan “Run the Silk Road”, which is held on May 1 - 3, 2015 on the northern shore of Issyk-Kul lake. 

Marathon it is not just a kind of sport, it is also a great chance to increase the touristic potential of a country. Every year each of the developed countries held marathons, where tens of thousands of runners and fans from all over the world gather together.  

This years Marathon will help make a difference and build awareness about local needs in education, in schools, for the blind, both children and adults and for those children with disabilities, where opportunities in education are scarce and often times children are set aside living in shame. For developed countries to prosper it takes an educated community to start making the difference and people working together, united to help empower their communities.  This years beneficiaries will include of Empower Blind People (School for Blind Children and Adults in Kyrgyzstan).





Let's support education for all.

Developing opportunities for all children and young leaders to help build healthy communities.
