Sports gear for Denis & Flavius

We are fundraising throughout the month of October to help sponsor two young talented brothers who come from a poor background and need sports gear sponsorship. We will be doing the 'Calories Do Count' October fitness challenge to help raise even more funds. Please join us in the challenge and help support these kids and their dream to become professional athletes.

Denis is a 16 year old boy from Romania who is a very fast runner. He is second best in his category at National level and has all chances to become a professional athlete. He has a 12 year old younger brother, Flavius, who looks up to his brother and is becoming a star in his football team. They are both registered with the Voluntari sports club in Ilfov, Romania. Denis and Flavius come from a very poor background, they are two of 6 siblings (5 boys and 1 girl), their father works hard to keep the family fed and their mother is a kindergarden teacher. We heard about Denis' and Flavius' stories from the manager of their sports teams. We are looking to help sponsor Denis and Flavius with new sports gear and we hope to bring a smile to their faces and offer them a chance to improve their sports performance. 

All funds will go towards buying equipment for the two boys. We have been provided with a list of the equipment needed (shoes, clothing and accessories). Once the fundraise is over (31st October 2020 will be the last day for donations), we will be buying the equipment from the UK in the correct sizes and we will ship the equipment to Romania to the team manager. No funds will be directly sent to the boys, all money will be used for equipment and shipping costs.

The 'Calories Do Count' challenge is an initiative created by a group of friends who set off to actively burn calories while making a difference. The challenge consists of maximizing your burnt calories throughout the month of October. That means you will be burning as many calories as you can, and the milestones to hit are 3,000 / 5,000 / 8,000 / 10,000 depending on your fitness level. If you don't have access to a gym or don't own a calorie tracker, we have provided a directional table to help you count your calories for the challenge. This is a fitness challenge for all levels, we are inviting you to join us and help raise money to support Denis and Flavius. If you would like to join the challenge, simply follow us on instagram @caloriesdocount and share the link for the fundraiser with your family and friends to help us get as many donations as possible.

In charge of the fundraising page, instagram page, budget, purchases and shipping is Letitia Hristodorescu (for any questions, please email me at [email redacted])
