The NUTRILITE team gave its heart to the patients of the Center for Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiology.
Kyiv May 28 also became a holiday of charity – people from all over Ukraine joined together to participate in the 25th annual sports charity project “Run under the Chestnuts”. Traditionally, the team of NUTRILITE in the amount of 2,986 people from the company «Emway Ukraine», which also includes 350 children from the Center for Children’s Cardiology and Cardiology, Kyiv, has traditionally been the largest project team. The company is also the 5th time the general partner of the project.
Thanks to the project, UAH 1.5 million was collected. From which the NUTRILITE team put in the total amount of UAH 447,900. Including, as a partner for the children’s race, Amway has transferred UAH 52,500 as a registration fee for the participation of 350 children, members of the “Team of the dream”, who are former patients of the Center for Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine. Also on the initiative of the company on the Run was organized a children’s area, aimed at building healthy lifestyle skills, where more than 700 children actively, fun and cognitively spent time.
Participation in the Run has become a good tradition, which is supported every year by an increasing number of representatives of the company. For example, this year, members of the NUTRILITE team from Lviv and Odessa, who could not come to Kyiv on May 28, organized local actions – the “Collect heart” flash mob, and in Ivano-Frankivsk the team gathered and ran five kilometers in its city. More than 250 Amway Independent Entrepreneurs have expressed their support to the NUTRILITE team in this kind of business in their regions.
“Run under the chestnuts” annually collects both athletes and runners, as well as everyone who wants to do a good deed and help the children who need it. Everyone can join: runners by their own example inspire others to lead a healthier way of life, and all who have made a registration fee on the Run contribute to the general treasury of funds to be transferred to the Center for Cardiology to purchase a new bi-projection angiographic system Siemens of the class AXIOM Artis zee for X-ray examination heart and blood vessels.
“Mutual support, care for health and the desire to change people’s lives for the better are the core principles of Amway’s business. The fact that such a large number of Amway employees and Independent Entrepreneurs each year respond to the company’s call to take part in the Run and find the opportunity to help children with heart problems, indicates a profound understanding of the company’s values by all our employees and the NPA. I am immensely grateful to all project participants – together we help children to start living a healthy, healthy life “, – Tomas Muras, General Director of” Emway Ukraine “Ltd.
The charity race for the NUTRILITE team is our “Healthy Way Together,” the contribution of each participant in the Run to the recovery of the small patients of the Center on their way to a happy, full-fledged life. Traditionally, people with disabilities ran out of the NUTRILITE team. More than 20 people on carts took part in the “Runaway”, having overcome the 300-meter distance as a symbol of the fact that for a person any obstacles become insignificant, if they have a support and a clear purpose.
For 25 years, the Run has helped hundreds of children. Many of them have joined the charity project as part of the Team of Real Dreams. For example, his first distance flew 3,5-year-old Valya Ushakova. Six months later the girls had an operation in the Center, which became possible due to the Run. Lyudmila Ushakova, mother of Valyushi (3.5 years old), a member of the Team of Real Dreams: “Last year, the participants of the Run under Chestnuts ran for the sake of my valius’s healthy heart, because the operation was made to us only six months ago. This year on the Run we ran along with our entire family to give the opportunity to other kids to have a healthy heart! “
A healthy lifestyle is important to inculcate from childhood. For this purpose, on the “Run under Chestnuts”, on the initiative of Amway, a children’s zone was organized within the framework of the national sports and entertainment program “Sport for Peace”. More than 700 children participated in sports relays and interesting master classes, as well as had the opportunity to practice their creative skills and just have fun.
