The idea of running of hope originated in 2008, when Pranciškonys brothers and brother Benediktas decided to realize a project to create an information and aid centre in Klaipeda for West Lithuanian oncological patients.
Then a marathon „running of hope“ was decided to be held in Klaipeda. During this project all funds were put in a construction of the centre.
We can celebrate, that „Running of hope“ marathon is successfully being held every year and attracts huge runners and a crowd of kind – hearted people (5000-8000).
Also, since first marathon, using all EU, Hope events, private sponsor funds brothers successfully accomplished an idea of oncological patient’s centre opening and it opened doors in 2014. During first years about 1500 waiting for help people visited it, and over 3000 of different services were provided.
