Running for the Trees
You have the unique opportunity to contribute to the improvement of the Czech landscape by registering online at the Prague International Marathon website. Your 8 € (200 CZK) will support the planting of a tree on your behalf.
Everybody who adopts a tree will receive an original certificate by email and also a photo of the alley after their tree is planted.
Not everybody can actively participate in environmental protection and tree planting, but everyone who cares about the fate of our landscape and environment can help. Grants and resources from our donors are distributed to projects dedicated to renovating roads, creating more gardens and planting greenery in playgrounds and municipal squares, or for planting bio-corridors that are necessary for animal migration.
Thanks to the support of hundreds of donors, small and large, the impact of the programme Tree of Life has multiplied and after nine years in existence it can be proud of thousands of planted trees.
We are not only proud of cultivating trees. What we consider most important is that planting together often cements relationships within a club, school or a group of friends who care about what their surroundings look like and who are willing to participate in a positive change.
504 runners for trees managed to raise CZK 75 750 during the spring season 2017. All the money raised will be used for planting new trees in autumn 2017 in the following cities: Kopřivnice, Račiněves, Marboltice, Podbřežice. We would like to thank you to all runners for trees and we look forward to the autumn running season.
