Runners required to support seriously ill Czech children!
Endowment Fund Foundation Bator Tabor Czech Republic
Tým Odvahy, the Czech company that was established in order to provide a vehicle for raising funds to enable seriously ill children from the Czech Republic to attend the Bátor Tábor summer camp in Hungary, announces that it will again have a team of runners taking part in this year’s Volkswagen Prague Marathon.
As this year’s marathon is already sold out, Tým Odvahy is looking for runners that have already registered to take part, whether in the marathon itself or as a team, and who are ready to make their journey even more worthwhile by persuading friends and colleagues to sponsor them in their endeavour. Such sponsorship money will then be used to send seriously ill Czech children from the oncology centres in Prague and Brno to the Bator Tabor summer camps, which this year will be held on from Jun 27 to July 04 and from July 25 to August 01.
Bátor Tábor was established in Hungary in 2001 to offer complex therapeutic recreation programs for seriously ill children and their families. Every year, Bator Tabor welcomes children from Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and the Czech Republic, each of whom are able to participate in life-changing programs that they otherwise might miss out on due to their illnesses. In the past 14 years, thanks to the cooperation of the hospitals, over 6500 campers from all over Central Europe have attended the camps.
Talking about Bator Tabor and, in particular, Tým Odvahy, Katarína Koščíková , the Manager of Development of Bator Tabor said,
“We want to give as many unwell children as possible the opportunity to take part in our summer camps, but, of course, the transport, accommodation and provision of facilities costs a lot of money, which we have to find through donations and charitable activities. Just now we have running teams all over Central Europe that regularly take part in half and full marathons and that persuade their friends and family to sponsor them in order to raise funds for the Bator Tabor Foundation, thereby enabling children from their countries to attend our summer camps. Since we started,our runners have helped to send more than 160 children with oncological diseases to the camp and, of course, the more runners we have, the more children that can attend!”
Whilst the aim of Tym Odvahy is to encourage individual runners to support the charity, it also offers businesses the chance to submit a team in each of the races and to run as a relay, which, in addition to raising funds, offers a great team building opportunity. Many companies have taken part in such activities in the past, and improved their corporate message in the process, including Deutsche Bank, General Electric, DHL, GlaxoSmithKline and many more.
Tým Odvahy offers plenty of extras to its runners, including a personal profile on www.Tymodvahy.cz, where runners can track their fundraising efforts and communicate with donors, a welcome package that includes sample letters and tips on how to raise funds, and the opportunity to take part in the regular joint training sessions organized by the Prague Marathon organizing committee. The Bátor Tábor Foundation recommends fundraising goals of 15,000 CZK for individual runners, and 20,000 CZK for teams.
Tým Odvahy has already signed up 16 runners to take part this year - 2 relay teams and 8 individual runners - each of whom will be raising money for the charity, and it is hoped that due to their efforts, 40 children from the Czech Republic will be able to attend the camp.
