Ajvar 5K Run/Walk is to celebrate the joy of living, the fun of running and walking, the excitement of meeting people, the importance of making new friends and cherishing old ones, and also to remember and honor Macedonia's beautiful heritage. Most importantly, however, we hope you'll join us in remembering to open our hearts and give hope and help to less fortunate children in Macedonia.
This year's proceeds will benefit Emanuil Plus, an organization in Bitola, Macedonia that helps children with cerebral palsy and epilepsy.
Ajvar 5K is a charity event that provides the opportunity for all of us to participate in fundraising for children in need in Macedonia. We partnered with United Macedonian Diaspora, an international non-governmental and non-profit organization with headquarters in Washington, DC, which promotes Macedonian causes globally. All donations are tax deductible. You will receive tax receipt directly from UMD.
