Who exactly does your foundation support?
Mainly children in children's homes. However, Teribear also supports returning children in orphanages to their families, or endeavours to keep families together – provided it’s safe for the children – and to prevent the placement of children in children's homes. Teribear also helps mothers in need, so that they can educate their children themselves, and provide them with everything they require. In short Teribear helps all disadvantaged children.
A year ago, some 4,000 runners took part in Teribear runs, raising more than 3.8 million crowns. This year, the event has raised more than double. I’m sure you are delighted with this result, but what do you think? How have you achieved it?
It's great and we’re immensely pleased about it. I think the Czechs simply love competition. People enjoy doing sports and helping others at the same time. Also, we have improved the event since last year: Families and teams could participate fully – the fact that they can run together and help at the same time has motivated friends or colleagues at work.
