About Moscow Legal Run 2014

On 31 May 2014, Moscow Legal Run, the first charity run among the lawyers, took place in the Novodevichie prudy picturesque park for the 5 km and 10 km distance. The event was coincided with the 150th anniversary of the Russian Advocacy, as well as with the Children's Day. The representatives of the Russian and foreign law firms and companies participated in the run, many of them in the format of the corporate teams – overall more than 500 persons.

Within the framework of the project we managed to raise more than 500 thousand roubles which have been transferred to the Gift of Life charity fund to support Ansorjohn Asrorov– a two-year-old baby boy from Tajikistan diagnosed with retinoblastoma. Ansorjohn got through treatment in the Russian Oncological Scientific Center named after N.N.Blokhin at the beginning of 2014. The boy carried over the therapy rather good: there were some complications, but he succeeded to get through them in time. In summer 2014 Ansorjohn was dismissed provided that the child shall be regularly brought for follow-up examinations. The last examination took place in December, the results gave hope both to parents and to doctors. The boy is in remission now, no elements of tumor growth are discovered. The state of child’s health is normal.
