Charity Run

Yardımseverlik koşusu, tüm dünyada STK’ları (sivil toplum kuruluşları) desteklemek amacıyla başarı ile kullanılan bir kaynak geliştirme metodudur. Amerika’da bu yolla 1 sene içinde toplanan bağış miktarı 1.5 milyar dolar iken, sadece Londra Maratonu’ndaki bir koşuda, 30 bini aşkın kişi aracılığıyla toplanan bağış miktarı 50 milyon poundu geçmiştir.

Türkiye’de Adım Adım Oluşumu sayesinde 2008 yılında duyurulan ve yaygınlaştırılan ilk kolektif yardımseverlik koşusu kampanyasında tek STK için 75 bin TL bağış toplanırken, bugün Adım Adım ile birlikte iyilik peşinde koşan dernek ve vakıf (STK) sayısı 80'e merdiven dayamış, 1 yılda koşu aracılığıyla STK'lara sağlanan bağış miktarı da 10 milyon TL’yi aşmıştır.

Yardımseverlik koşusu kampanyası boyunca yapılan bağışlar, doğrudan doğruya STK’nın, ilgili proje için açılan resmi banka/kredi kartı hesabına aktarılır.

Yardımseverlik koşusu sadece 'bağış' demek değildir. Aynı zamanda kalbinizi ısıtan, çözülmesini arzu ettiğiniz, dikkat çekmek istediğiniz bir amacı sosyal çevrenize duyurmanızı da sağlar. Bu, yardımseverlik koşusu yaptığınız STK için bir nevi elçilik rolü üstlendiğiniz anlamına gelir ve kısaca, bağışın yanı sıra, farkındalığı artırır, sorunun çözümüne katkıda bulunursunuz.

Yardımseverlik koşucuları, Mart 2008’den bu yana İyilik Peşinde Koş Platformu’nda yer alan 40+ sivil toplum kuruluşuna* ait projeler için koşmuş ve 340 bini aşkın bağışçıdan, 37 milyon TL’yi aşan bağış toplamışlardır. 
*2018'de Adım Adım'a katılan yeni STK'lar ile toplam sayı 76'ya ulaşmıştır.

Şeffaf ve hesap verebilir STK'ların öncelikle desteklenmesi konusunda titizlikle çalışan Adım Adım, https://ipk.adimadim.org platformu ile bütün bağışların anında izlenebileceği bir sistem kurarak Türkiye’de bir ilki daha gerçekleştirmiştir. Adım Adım gönüllü koşucuları tarafından desteklenen STK’ların yıl içindeki bireysel bağış toplamlarının %30′unun yardımseverlik koşuları sayesinde toplandığını bilmek yapılanların önemini açıkça ortaya koymaktadır.

Adım Adım’ın kayıtlı gönüllü koşucu sayısı 2018 Ağustos ayı itibariyle 44 bin kişiyi aşmıştır.

Siz de Eker I Run’da iyilik peşinde koşmak isterseniz https://ipk.adimadim.org ziyaret etmeniz yeterli.
