DESPRE UNITED WAY SI CAUZA – INVATA SA REUSESTI!

Daca iti place sa alergi si vrei sa ii ajuti pe cei care au nevoie de sprijin, iata ocazia perfecta sa le
imbini.

Te invitam in echipa United Way Runing! Poti ajuta ca alergator fundraiser sau voluntar pentru a
sustine cauza noastra. Sustinem dreptul la educatie al copiilor, indiferent de mediul in care s-au
nascut. Numai o treime dintre copiii defavorizati termina scoala generala in Romania. Cand parintii
lor se lupta pentru traiul zilnic, educatia copiilor nu mai este o prioritate. Iar fara oportunitati reale si
acces continuu la educatie, multi dintre acesti copii risca sa ajunga la randul lor adulti in dificultate.

Este al saptelea an in care United Way este partener caritabil al evenimentelor organizate de
Asociatia Bucharest Running Club: Semi-Maratonul International Bucuresti si Maratonul International
Bucuresti.

In programele United Way copiii primesc: ajutor la lectii, accesul la activitati recreative si educative in
scoli sau centre sociale de zi, consiliere psihologica precum si o masa calda zilnic.

Anul trecut, cu sprijinul celor 300 de alergatori in echipa United Way, de la cele 2 evenimente am
ajutat 70 de tineri sa mearga la cursuri de calificare si sa beneficieze de sanse egale pentru un loc de
munca. Le multumim tuturor!

Cum te poti implica cu United Way:

1. Daca te-ai hotarat sa sustii sansa la educatie copiilor din mediile dezavantajate si vrei sa alergi in
echipa United Way, da-ne un semn. Iti vom ura bun venit in echipa si vei primi toate informatiile
necesare.

Persoana de contact: Sorina Velicu, Specialist Dezvoltare Resurse, sorina.velicu@unitedway.ro.
Pentru a reusi impreuna si a ne bucura de eveniment, United Way va asigura fiecarui membru al
echipei sprijin in pregatirea sportiva (informatii si antrenamente comune), cat si pentru strangerea
de fonduri.

2. Daca vrei sa ne sustii ca voluntar si esti disponibil in perioada 11-13 mai (inainte sau doar in ziua
cursei), ajutorul tau este binevenit! Vei putea ajuta la inscriere alergatorilor, cu ajutor logistic sau in
ziua cursei: la punctele de hidratare fixe sau mobile (cu bicicleta); sau in echipa United Way:
incurajare alergatori pe traseu, ca fotograf, entertainment, etc.

Trimite-ne un mesaj la sorina.velicu@unitedway.ro cu datele tale de contact, zona de interes si
timpul disponibil iar noi iti transmitem mai multe informatii.

3. Spune mai departe si celor din jur despre echipa United Way Running si cauza tinerilor pe care ii
sustinem.

Ce inseamna LIVE UNITED? Este indemnul United Way de a-i ajuta pe cei din jurul nostru, care au
nevoie de sprijin. Cum? E simplu: Doneaza. Fii voluntar. Actioneaza. LIVE UNITED.
Multumim si te asteptam in echipa!

ABOUT UNITED WAY AND THE CAUSE – LEARN TO SUCCEED!

If you like to run and you want to help those in need, this is the perfect opportunity to combine them.
We are inviting you to join the United Way Running team! You can help as a fundraiser-runner, or
as a volunteer for supporting our cause. We support the right to a good education for all children,
no matter the environment they were born in. Currently, only 1 out of 3 underprivileged children
finish secondary school in Romania. With their parents struggling for survival every day, the kids’
education is no longer a priority. Without real opportunities and continuous access to education, a
lot of these children are at risk of becoming adults who are themselves in financial and social
distress.

It is the 7 th year in which United Way is a charity partner of the events organized by the Bucharest
Running Club Association: the International Semi-Marathon and the Bucharest International
Marathon.

In the United Way programs, kids receive help with their homework, access to recreational and
educational activities in schools or social centers, psychological counselling, as well as a hot meal
every day.

Last year, with the support of the 300 runners for the United Way team, at the 2 events we raised
enough funds to help 70 youths attend qualification trainings and have equal changes of
employment. We thank all the participants!

How you can get involved together with United Way:

1. If you decided to support the chance to education of underprivileged children and you want to be
part of the United Way team as a runner, contact us. We will welcome you to the team and you’ll
get all the information you need.
Contact person: Sorina Velicu, resource development specialist, sorina.velicu@unitedway.ro. In
order to succeed together and to enjoy the event, United Way will ensure support to every team
member for both physical preparation (information and joint trainings), and for fundraising.

2. If you want to offer your support as a volunteer, and you are available between May 11-13 (before
the race or on the day of the race), your help is most welcome! You will be able to help by registering
the runners, assisting with the logistics, or, on the day of the race, at the fixed or mobile (by bike)
hydration points; or in the United Way team: encouraging the runners on the trail, or as a
photographer, entertainer, etc.
Send us a message at sorina.velicu@unitedway.ro with your contact details, interest area and your
availability and we will provide you with more information.

3. Spread the word about the United Way Running team and about the youths and children’s cause
that we support
What does LIVE UNITED mean? It is the United Way incentive to help those around us, who need
help. How? It’s simple: Donate. Act. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.
Thank you! You’re welcome on our team!

About the United Way cause – LEARN TO SUCCEED!
The “Learn to Succeed!” integrated intervention program involves the decision makers in the
development of a child (teachers, parents, community leaders, volunteers) and gets them to work
together in order to prevent school dropout and insure access to quality education for vulnerable
children and youths.

About United Way:
Every human being has the right to a good and decent living: access to education and a job, good
health, and a reasonable income in order to support their family. That is why United Way supports 3
important areas: education, health, and income. Therefore, United Way helps thousands of
disadvantaged people: children and youths – to go to school, adults – to learn new trades, access new
jobs and to be independent, single elders, people with disabilities or with serious illnesses – to lead a
better life. For more information, go to www.unitedway.ro or visit the ‘United Way Romania’
Facebook page.
