Latest annual Race for Freedom will be on movie!

After almost 10 years of hard work and thousands of application from you, our dear readers, we got an offer we couldn’t pass on. The MoWin company is filming a documentary about the American Soldier and the way the spirit of American sldier live in today’s society. Since this great movie company recognised our work and our annual race as one of the ways to give honor to the soldiers, they would like to have the event on film.

Of course we had to agree on this one since it’s such a great honor. We would like to inform you that every of you, when applying to run the race will be asked whether he/she wants to be in the video and sign a paper about that. The same thing is mandatory for parents of the kids who run the kids race.

You can choose from running or walking with our annualn race for freedom!

For those of you who don’t want to take part in this, it is also ok.

Filming will be done during the race itself and will also host a couple of guest who will be held for an interview. You will also get a chance, if you want to, speak a couple of words about the event and what does all this mean to you. Some of you will be featured in the movie we can’t wait to see!

The whole movie is already been filmed and it should be out  at the beginning of the next year. We would proudly inform you when it comes the time. We would like to tell you how proud we are about how our event has made it to the movie screens and how thankful we are t all of you who have been a part of this great event for many years already.

We hope you will continue to support us and to take part in every new annual race and walk we organise in our cute little city. We assure you, you are all wonderful people and are making our city a better place to live.

Don’t forget to apply to this year’s event as well. We’re waiting for you at the start place in The Mattel Park!
