Description

Bangladeshi and international runners throughout the world are invited to unite for a FREE virtual race (1K, 5K or 10K) to raise donations and show care and love for those in need! The race will be run September 25,26,27, 2020 (GMT+6) for 72hrs, so pick your best time to run and lace up. Once you register we’ll email you a race Bib to print, and instructions on how to upload your GPS time after you complete your run. When you finish your race, upload your time and a photo and share on Facebook. We will also send you a finisher certificate. We’re all in this together!

As part of the  Bangladesh running  community, we at RUNBANGLA strive to set  an  example of charity for our sport and community. While the pandemic has devastated many corners of our global community, we have chosen to focus our efforts to create a virtual race in support of one very special group. We are teaming up with our charity partner, the ADAMYA Foundation in Dhaka, which has supported the specially abled community since 2011, helping individuals find their special talent and train them to enter the work force alongside the rest of society.

“In the best of times the world most often places differently abled people at the back of the line, forcing them to struggle and work harder than most to open the doors of society and be valued and appreciated for the real contributions they can make in the workplace. Now, with the pandemic of Covid-19, as entire populations are feeling the adverse effects on health, family, and jobs, the lines of those in need grows longer, and so too does the distance to the front for those already at the back.”

Tariqul Haque – Founder ADAMYA Foundation

DONATIONS for the ADAMYA Foundation

While the race is FREE we encourage those who are able to make a contribution to our charity partner. Any amount is greatly appreciated and will make a difference.

DONATION PAYMENT

There are several ways to make a donation:

1. CREDIT CARD* - Make your donation when you register. All major credit cards are accepted on the Virtual Race registration platform.

2. bKASH* - Unfortunately, bKash is not accepted on international platforms. If you want to make a donation with bKash; after you complete your registration online, you can TEXT your contribution to ADAMAY Foundation:

          bKash - ADAMYA Foundation Merchant number: 01848382050

3. CHECK – If you prefer to send a check please make payable to ADAMYA Foundation and mail to:

ADAMYA Foundation
House 257 (2nd Floor) | Road 03
Baridhara DOHS
Dhaka 1212, Bangladesh

*  Another solution for bKash. If a group of friends, who use only bKash, wants to run and donate they only need to have one friend with a credit card.  One (1) registrant (with a credit card) can register up to (25) separate runners and make a lump sum donation for all and settle up with friends later.
