Imagine that all your life you have to breathe through a mask of two dozen thick layers. It cannot be removed, cleaned, changed. Periodically you are stifled with cough that cannot be stopped for hours... That’s how Vladik Bogomazov lives for 10 years. He is sick with cystic fibrosis. Every day the infection devours the lungs and breathing becomes harder.

Hello everybody. My name is Anatoly Kondratyuk.
I am an active lifestyle, engaged in sports, hardening, practicing medical hunger. I have been a vegetarian for 9 years.
I love running and decided to run on the Kyiv Half Marathon for the little boy with a wonderful story.
I've been jogging for over a year. It has become a big part of my life for this short period. I relax, think and enjoy while running. Last year I ran many half marathons in Ukraine and abroad. I like this atmosphere, here I found many friends.
I will run 21 km on Kyiv Half Marathon, for the one boy, a ward of the Krona Charitable Foundation.
Hello, my name is Nikolay. I work in Joma company as a brand manager. In addition, I am Amway entrepreneur, water polo master and coach.
In the last few years I have been running. I participated in many sporting events last season, so this year I planned to start running a little later.
However, I could not get past the amazing story and decided to take part in the spring fundraising marathon to help the child.
Hello, my name is Olga. I lead an active lifestyle and train myself to run.
Now it will be my first marathon. I will overcome 10 km on the KyivHalfMarathon with a special sense. I want to help a little boy Mark Yaroshenko. This is strong incentive and my main goal.
I will not run at Wizzair Kyiv Marathon this time. Because the run itself is not important. My purpose is to raise money to support doctors who give children healthy hearts and the opportunity to breathe with full breasts. I began running three years ago in order to help children. I wanted to show myself and everyone who knows me that saving someone's life requires a good effort. Actually, such a goal is worth much more than a jog. No need to look for excuses, just start moving your butt. And that's what each of us can do.

"Hi, I'm Vasilok!", every day the doctors of the oncohematological department hear such a congratulation from the 4-year-old Vasylyna Burlina. She literally rages with life's emotions. Previously, Vasylyna was running and jumping a lot. Now such an activity is absolutely contraindicated for her because a terrible diagnosis myelodysplastic syndrome has become a threat to her life. Recently, Vasylyna began attending a kindergarten. She adapted so difficulty to new conditions, she was very tired and nervous. So, in June 2018, doctors diagnosed her with a myelodysplastic syndrome.
This unique little girl is fond of boxing. At age of 4, she had already worked off on a punching ball that her parents presented her. And now she had to enter into protracted battle against a brutal illness. So Katie Burmii, 6-year-old is in the ring against the Large-cell Nehhodzhkin anaplastic lymphoma. Behind are 12 rounds of chemotherapy. Ahead – the high-dose chemotherapy, bone marrow transplantation, a complex post-transplantation recovery period. The duel takes away the strength of the girls but does not take away the belief in her victory. She must inflict the disease the last irreversible knockout!
