UGRAD Alum Organizes Charity Run Across Ukraine

While studying in the United States, Eurasian Undergraduate Exchange Program (UGRAD) alum Andriy Maksymovych met an activist who biked across the U.S. to raise money for charity. Andriy decided to adapt the idea to raise money for premature babies in his native Ukraine. The result was "Race for Children" - the first charity run to cross Ukraine from one border to the other. Hear him describe how and why he and a friend ran more than 600 miles in 41 days to cross the largest country in Europe.
