Running for Ukraine!
March 22, 2022
4 UWC Maastricht staffmembers decided to join forces in terms of fundraising, while taking on a personal challenge! Each of them will run a marathon and use it as an opportunity to raise funds for a scholarship for a student from Ukraine to attend UWC Maastricht.
“The school’s mission to make education a force for peace and a sustainable future becomes even more pertinent in a time of war and violent conflict. For decades, students from war torn countries, including from Ukraine and Russia, have been living and learning together peacefully on UWC campuses, alongside other students from the region and across the world. While the school joins the global community in calling for an immediate end to the war in Ukraine, it also wants to contribute to the building of bridges for the future, by providing additional scholarships for students from Ukraine. This is where we, Kate, Craig, Edward and Robin would like to help!”
