Following the tragic events in Boston, WITC changed its Tuesday night run to take part in a “Run for Boston” event in Park Skaryszewski in a show of solidarity with fellow runners in Warsaw. Club founder Ken Globerman had the following to say about the event and the Boston tragedy:
“In light of the recent tragedy at the Boston Marathon, Warsaw International Triathlon Club (WITC) gladly supported “Run For Boston”, and applauds the organizers who put it together. It was heart-warming to see Polish citizens uniting to commemorate a truly international incident. Let’s continue to make this point to the world: The bonds formed by sporting competition will always be stronger than the threat of terrorism.”
WITC also supports the fund set up to assist the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. If you would like to make a donation to this cause please visit the One Fund Boston page.
