"I want children with disabilities to have the same opportunities as everyone! They should be able to go to a theater, travel and live a full life. I want people to stop ignoring them and closing eyes on disability issue. I want them to stop turning their heads when they see a child on a wheelchair but start smiling. I want to run my race to draw attention to this issue. I want people to be kinder because love and kindness will save the world".

"Unfortunately, our society is not ready to accept people with special needs. However, they and their families deserve having an active lifestyle. That’s why it is important to speak about these problems and to support such initiatives. I run for inclusion and to make these boys and girls a part of my and your world. Please, support me in this!".
My name is Myroslava Ulianina, I am a TV presenter, nutritionist and motivational speaker. My whole life has been communicating with people – at consultations, at speeches and afterwards, online and offline, through the TV screen and the smartphone screen. And I see our main problem: we hurry. Hurry to live, hurry to finish the meeting, when we have already signed the contract, we get annoyed in the mash, because we hurry to train... We hurry to live – and it seems that this rush is also transmitted to the children in the womb. They, too, hurry and want to be born, even though they are not ready yet. Newborns in a hurry are vulnerable and need help. The moral – their moms and dads will give, but the medical one – we can give by raising money for equipment to support their lives. One-click – and you're involved!
For the last 8 years, at least once a week, each of us wears a red nose, and steps I've the hospital's doorstep. We are known in onkogematology, neurology surgeries in almost all of Ukraine. This time we decided that adults in hospices need smiles too.
My bike is my lifestyle, it gives me freedom of movement and freedom in the soul. However, now I face a new challenge – the 5,000-meter race. I can’t call myself an avid runner. I will be frank. Unfortunately, I will have no opportunity to run 5 kilometers in Wizz Air Kyiv City Marathon, because that day I will “pedal” at the Veloforum in Vinnitsa city. But I also can’t remain indifferent to the story of Mikhail Bratushkin! Therefore, I sincerely undertake to go to the morning runs here in Zaporizhzhia till the official start of the marathon in Kiev and publish video reports daily. But, in spite of everything, I want you not to forget for a second: the focus of attention is the boy for whom we are looking for a liver donor.
I, Inna Martyniuk, one day, running changed my life and I want running to change the life of another girl - Sofia. Until the age of 7, Sophia was an ordinary cheerful girl, and all of a sudden the doctors' verdict was a heart defect.
I will run my 21,195 km. at the 2019 Wizzair Kyiv Marathon to raise a portion of the required amount for a heart implant for Sofia.
Any big goal consists of simple components. Sometimes it’s enough just not to remain indifferent.
I will run my 21.195 km. at Wizzair Kyiv Marаthon 2019 in order to collect part of the necessary amount for the purchase of a heart implant for little Sofia.
Dobrobut Medical Network team knows Zaporuka not the first year. Marathons have become our good tradition but our friendship is not limited to them.
"Friends, we have a child with a pathological fracture, we need a specialized ambulance and professional team for transportation…" Such requests from Zaporuka arrive more often than we would like to. We dream that children will never need such services but are always ready to support the Foundation team as much as we can and we are happy to do it."
