I am happy to announce that my foundation in Cyprus will be one of the main sponsors of the 2017 OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO, which will take place on the 18th and 19th of March in Limassol. The foundation will host the Andrey & Julia Dashin’s Foundation 1KM Youth Race, providing children aged from 6-16 years old the opportunity to take part in this unique event for free.
In February, the Alpari Charitable Fund organized fun days for children to celebrate ‘Maslenitsa’, a traditional Russian holiday which highlights the end of the winter chills and the beginning of spring, warmth, growth and, of course, hope. The events took place firstly at the “Tim-Tim” Children’s development center and then at the Derbishki village where children of the Alpari Charitable fund were also joined by those from the local orphanage and school. Both events were a great success and were filled with children’s laughter as they ate pancakes, drank hot samovar tea, played football, embraced traditional activities next to the sound of a balalaika and made new friends.
