The project aims to reach both Slovak and Ukrainian teenagers aged 12 to 18, both to motivate them to move and to help them build friendships and develop a local community. All of our activities should be free of charge so that they can be afforded by everyone who is interested. We want to focus on a few main strands within the project, in collaboration with our partner Activity Point
, so that everyone can find an activity that suits them best.
The first one is running, where the successful Ukrainian marathoner Yevhen Burak has promised to take an active part in the project, and he will prepare the children for the Minimarathon in Košice (or another similar event), where we would like to send 10 of the most active participants of the project with the proviso that we would provide and pay for such an opportunity for them. We would like to create an attractive training plan for them where they would be able to track their progress with the help of the STRAVA sports app. Another activity is a Workout in cooperation with the Activity Point platform, where a trainer will be provided for the participants to help them with the right exercises.
We are also planning hiking activities in the surroundings of the Walk and Talk type where, in addition to moving in nature and getting to know the surroundings, participants will be able to improve their language skills in Slovak or English.
We want to add other physical activities (skateboarding, cycling, etc.) to our project and create an attractive programme for teenagers in Bratislava with the opportunity to create new social bonds while strengthening their physical condition and health at the same time.
