Results

As JCI Kadıköy, we participated in the Istanbul Marathon in 2017 and 2018 within the scope of the cooperation with the Foundation of Freedom Again to Turkish Children.

This foundation aims to reach international standards of juvenile justice system in Turkey, to eliminate the factors that push the child into crime, and to contribute to the rehabilitation of the children who have turned to crime. Therefore, it participates in the Istanbul Marathon to finance youth centers established by the foundation. JCI Kadikoy creates awareness for disadvantaged children by running and collects donations and provides financial support to these children.

We run for the foundation with the motto “I Grow Up As You Run” in 2017. We aimed to cover the annual expenses of 3 children for 3800 TL and we reached a donation of 28.000 TL during the race with the participation of 20 people. Additionally, In the race we participated in 2018, we collected a donation of 18,600 TL with a participation of 16 people.

Thus, we created 15,985 and 14,598 interactions in the social media channels respectively.
