BAFFATHON

About challenge

Giving and charitable actions have always been an important part of the Baltic-American Freedom Foundation alumni community. In these times, being active and healthy and supporting each other is important. That’s why The BAFF Alumni Council members invite you to take part in BAFFATHON!

What is BAFFATHON?

To celebrate BAFF’s 10th Anniversary, we invite you to move (run, cycle or walk - you can choose yourself) 10km in 10 days to support one of these 3 charities in the Baltics that help people with their emotional wellbeing:

Youth Helpline (www.jaunimolinija.lt). Youth Helpline works to ensure that emotional support by telephone or internet would be available for everyone.

Latvia Mentor (www.mentor.lv). Provides emotional and practical support to young people who lack family care.

Peaasi (www.peaasi.ee). Provides mental health education and resources for everyone.

Starting from the 25th of June till 4th of July 2021, let’s come together either virtually (or if the situation in your country allows) in person to move to feel good and to do good. You can run or walk on a treadmill or you can be active outside!

Together we can give our support for making the Baltic States a more content and happier place to live and work!

How to take part in BAFFATHON?

  • Join the BAFFATHON challenge until July 4th here on DistantRace. Register with a sports tracker of your choice and get your comfortable shoes ready!
  • When you sign up, donate a minimum of 20 euros to a charity of your choice (Peaasi, Youth Line or Mentor Latvia).
  • BAFFATHON is open to all BAFF fellows, their friends, family members and colleagues. You can share your participation link with your friends and family who can also donate on your behalf. The more people know about BAFFATHON, the more money we can raise for these amazing charities!
  • You can participate individually or form a team. If you wish to join a team, please select one from the existing list or create your own. This is a great chance to reconnect with your fellow alumni and invite them to join your team.
  • You have 10 days (from 25th of July till 4th of July, 2021) to cover the distance of 10 kilometers. Don’t forget to record your activity with your sports tracker and share it on social media with #BAFFATHON.

If you have any questions, please contact BAFF Alumni Coordinators Maarja (mtsimmer@ciee.org) or Laura (lbacinskiene@ciee.org).
