September news

Our numbers rock!

Summer is over, a new school year is beginning and we’ve been evaluating our recent accomplishments and future goals. So far this year we have:

  • clocked more than 112,000 km on our online kilometer counter with the help of hundreds of runners from Budapest and beyond, including 6,405 kilometers donated by the organizers of the Wink Marathon
  • raised 5,5 million forints in February in 24 hours with the Send Winter Away run
  • brought in more than 600,000 forints with our first 1% campaign
  • racked up a generous 1 million HUF donation from KPMG in Hungary
  • fundraised a total of more than 7 million HUF by introducing virtual charity running in year 2012 -- all with no registration fees or administrative costs!

Thanks to all of you who gave, the Seedlings enjoyed a variety of healthy, fun activities from camping to horseback riding to swimming. This coming year, we have even more ambitious plans for improving the lives of severely disabled children and young people – and for making charity running the hottest new fundraising model in Hungary. Keep checking this space and our website for details and exciting news – and if you haven't done so already, make this the year that you join us! Inspire others -- be the inspiration!

Did you run, walk or bike today? Don't forget to log your kilometers on our on-line kilometer counter. We collect the kilometers and find sponsors to purchase them, and all funds go to support programs for the Seedlings. Help us raise funds by regularly logging your roadwork. Your workout today might mean a fun field trip for someone tomorrow!


We depend on voluntary funding - any small amount - or kind support is highly appreciated. It takes so little to do so much...
