Legal Run is a fundraising project. The contributions are collected during online registration, and the funds are directly transferred to the long-standing project partner – the “Podari Zhizn” charity foundation (and its sister branch in the UK «Gift of Life») and other local funds. From 2014 to 2021 within the project we succeeded to raise more than 21 million rubles, which allowed to provide with necessary medical treatment to 80 seriously ill children from Russia and abroad.
Legal Run is held under the auspices of Federal Chamber of Lawyers of the Russian Federation and St. Petersburg International Legal Forum and is traditionally dedicated to three events: 1 June - the Children's Day, 31 May - day of the Russian legal profession and World No Tobacco Day.
