V Anniversary International Charity Legal Run to Take Place in May 2019
The Organizing Committee of the International Charitable Run of Lawyers, the Legal Run, has resolved to postpone the fifth anniversary International Charitable Run of Lawyers, the Legal Run, to May 2019 due to the World Cup 2018 in Russia.
The final part of the 21st World Cup will take place from June 14 to July 15, 2018, the matches held in eleven Russian cities, ten of which planned to hold the next Run as fully featured participating cities. The total number of the cities participating in the next Legal Run has already exceeded twenty.
The organization of mass events has encountered a multitude of restrictions in all the cities in connection with the arrangements being made for the World Cup. The majority of the parks, embankments, and other facilities of the city infrastructure will be used in the preparation and, therefore, they will be unavailable for any other mass events, including the Legal Run. Given all those restrictions and to prevent the general event organization level for all the cities from deteriorating, the organizing committees of the cities participating in the Legal Run have unanimously resolved to postpone the Run to the next year, 2019.
It is still possible to support the project in May 2018 in the flash mob format on any day and to donate funds directly to the “Gift of Life” foundation and any other foundations participating in the event in the other cities. Global Legal Run is a satellite legal flash mob created to support the main project, the Legal Run, globally. In 2017, lawyers arranged flash mobs in tens of cities across the world: from Vladivostok to Kaliningrad in Russia and from Helsinki to Barcelona outside of Russia, lawyers hit the pavements of their cities to cover a random distance to support the project.
We will certainly inform you of our further plans and dates for holding runs in 2019. Watch for updates on our website and on our page on Facebook. Let’s wish our football players luck and watch them run on the battlefields of the championship! See you later, friends!
