I’m not an athlete, those athletes get sports achievements, medals and, stuff… I just want not go crazy, want to bring some peace to my brain, suffering… On November 2 I will run 10 km. Come and run with me, to raise funds for the work of the Center for Assistance to Victims of Sexual Assault. One can run to sweat and donate, part of the registration will go to support the Center. You can save the sweat and contribute to the campaign.
