We are calling on all sport lovers and fitness newcomers for a special kind of charity run: Together we will run, swim, cycle thousands of kilometres from Munich, the founding place of Abasha, to Kabul, the home of our partner project Drop and Ride.
From the afternoon jog in the park, racing down the hills on your bike or exploring the forest step by step, everything counts as long as you are moving, having fun and of course respecting social distancing. Whatever your age or ability, your kilometers and the sponsors that support you will bring the Munich to Kabul challenge forward.
You find freedom in going outdoors and doing the sport you love? For you, there is nothing better than teaming up with friends and training together? You want to support projects with children in Afghanistan who are crazy about sports and education? Then you’ve come to just the right place!
At Abasha, we support young, local initiatives in countries where education and equal rights cannot be taken for granted. We are a group of sports enthusiasts, students and spreadsheet nerds, who — with little money and great effort — pass on knowledge and know-how to motivated entrepreneurs and educational initiatives in developing countries.
Currently, we support the project “Drop and Ride”, which offers professional cycling training and educational courses to Kabul’s children. Thanks to bicycle tricks, half-pipes and English courses the girls and boys gather self-confidence and strength in a difficult environment. A special focus is placed on gender equality — Drop and Ride already changed the lives of more than 100 Afghan girls.
With this charity run, we want to raise money for Abasha to fund work with Drop and Ride and future additional projects in 2021.
So get into your running shoes, hop on your bike and let’s go! There is no entry fee, all we ask is that you take part in our Munich to Kabul Challenge, donate and ask friends and family to sponsor your efforts and perhaps even join in themselves.
