16 nationalities, 36 teams, 225 players, 238 goals for Syria and 150 fans! These are the statistics of the Run4Unity held in Vienna.
Children, young people and adults were there who came from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran and different countries in Africa as well as Austria itself. We raised funds for Syria by scoring goals! In fact every goal was “sponsored” and so earned money. “With the motto “link cultures” (written in German and Arabic) we told everyone about the rules of “fair play” in the game, for example “accept everyone as they are; no violence and try to make friends” At the end of the game we showed a video made by some young people in Syria and had a Skype with the Run4Unity in Sopron (Hungary). We ended the day with a BBQ and everyone agreed that it had been an extraordinary day that must happen again next year”.
