In December 2019, a small group of runners began a journey towards health and community. However, they faced the formidable challenge of COVID. Despite initial setbacks, they persevered and formed 36 groups with participants from countries such as Ukraine. This movement became a beacon of support, fostering a sense of home and relief in a safe environment. The success of the celebrations in Kaunas was marked, but the journey did not end there. The ‘we can do it’ formula was born, inspiring ongoing efforts to positively impact individuals and communities. Although the 42-month run has concluded, the hope for a collective start line reunion remains.
