Greetings from Run for Change and the Thrower’s Circle!
Run for Change (Run4change Inc.) is a non-profit organization driven by its passion for sports development coupled with the vision of a society that believes in the power of sports in promoting positive change in oneself, the community, and the nation. Since 2008, Run for Change has been implementing its three-pronged Sports Advocacy Program composed of Sporting Events, Sports Education and Sports Development.
As part of its Sports Advocacy Program, Run for Change will be formally organizing the THROWERS’ CIRCLE, an association of hammer, shot-put, discus and javelin throwers who share the same passion for the sport.
