Last week the charity event “Fighters for Good” was held in the capital of Belarus – Minsk.
The Belarusian World and European Champion Stepan Popov and European Champion Marianna Aliyeva, eminent athletes of Russia and Belarus held a master class for children, as all proceeds went to the needs of Minsk Orphanage No. 3.
“This is the first time such an event is being organized in our country. My good friend Marianna Aliyeva from Russia organized the “Fighters for Good” charity initiative, in which representatives of various martial arts have the opportunity to help those in need. The idea was born just 4 months ago, but according to Marianna’s estimates, about three thousand people have already joined it,” Stepan Popov said.
“Today, “Fighters for Good” are not necessarily athletes-fighters, but also fighters with their souls for justice and good. The finances we collect goes to orphanages and clinics for seriously ill children,” Marianna Aliyeva said.
Sportsmen from various martial arts clubs of Belarus were invited to the master class. There were not only young sambists but also judokas and karatekas among the participants. “Fighters for Good” collect toys and useful things for those whom they can help in life. To take part in a master class from eminent champions, you just had to buy something for the children from the orphanage.
