Charity donation

We organize Yerevan Spring Run together with "Armenian Mothers" NGO, to help children with cerebral palsy to get necessary medial treatment and rehabilitation. "Armenian Mothers" NGO is operating since 2012 and has helped more than 270 children and their families. The NGO helps by providing special rehabilitation procedures, physical trainings, it provides with special orthopedic shoes and home training equipment to help children develop their abilities. Often such children come from financialy disadvantaged families, very often with only one parent, where the parent has to stay home full-time to take care of the child. Armenian Mothers NGO, not only helps with rehabilitation treatment, but also strives to create opportunities for parents to learn new professions and skills, find employment, which they could combine with childcare.

The goal of 2018 Converse Bank Yerevan Spring Run is to organize treatment for children of the center under special methodology called ADELI, and acquire rehab costumes. ADELI costumes are considered as one of the most efficient treatments for developing abiliities of children with cerebral palsy.
