Estonia’s best long-distance runners inspire shelter kids to get involved in sport


A campaign designed to provide children in shelters around Estonia with new pairs of shoes was organised by the SEB Heategevusfond /Charity Fund/ in June and July. The campaign culminated in a special day out at the Rebasemäe picnic area in Tallinn Zoo, attended by more than a hundred children from shelters nationwide.

Sharing their experiences of healthy living and exercise were Olympian and national long-distance running champion Tiidrek Nurme and triplets Liina, Leila and Lily Luik, three of Estonia’s best female athletes in the discipline.

The kids also had the chance to take part in a workshop in which they could let their imaginations run wild, using colours and patterns of their choice to decorate enormous ‘dream chains’.

There to tell the kids fascinating stories was Aleksei Turovski, who explained all about the kinds of ‘shoes’ that animals ‘wear’.

The 500 pairs of shoes purchased as a result of the fund-raising campaign were presented during the event.

A video summary of the event can be viewed online at here.
