2013 SU Update: Nike and Kazan 2013: Just do Charity!


KAZAN - The Kazan 2013 Executive Directorate and Nike held a joint charity event aimed to help children of Tatarstan’s orphanages and social shelters.

The charitable event was organized in the shelter for children with deviant behavior of the Moskovsky City District of Kazan, Gavroche social shelter and sports school of the Verkhneuslonsky Municipal District of the Republic of Tatarstan. 150 children and teens received Nike shoes that, as the organisers feel, must inspire boys and girls to start playing sports and live a healthy life.

Needless to say, the event turned into a big thing for the orphans, with various cultural and sporting events being held on its sidelines. And the children’s enthusiastic response and positive feedback became the best reward for the organizers.

It’s worth mentioning that, from the very moment of its foundation, the Kazan 2013 Executive Directorate has been actively involved in various charity activities; representatives of the Directorate have been repeatedly conducting charity and social events in Kazan orphanages. At the same time, this joint event may be the beginning of a long-standing and fruitful cooperation between Kazan 2013 and Nike.
