A run for peace in Portugal

by | Mar 21, 2022 | 0 comments

Within the framework of the celebration of the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (April 6, 2022), the Portuguese Institute of Sport and Youth, in close coordination with the international organization Peace and Sport and with a group of partners nationals, organize a Run for Peace (walk and 5 km run) on April 9 and 10.

In order to involve as many citizens as possible, this initiative will be promoted in different parts of the country, including the walk and run centers of the Portuguese Athletics Federation and the autonomous regions of Madeira and the Azores. There will also be collections of food and other goods in the city of Lisbon, to be sent to the Ukrainian territory.

The mobilization of April 6, 2022 takes place under the slogan: “Sport: a response for peace”. Participation in these marches for peace will be an excellent way to highlight the power of sport to break down social, religious or ethnic barriers, enable dialogue and unite us towards a single goal: the promotion of peace.
