Annex 2: Northern Forest Fund

 

In 2019 we have a new project powered by North Marathon – the Northern Forest Fund.

This fund will be used for forestation, eco and greening actions, interventions for saving protected areas and trees in the surrounding areas of Darabani and Botosani. At the first edition of the Zilele Nordului festival, together with a group of volunteers, we initiated a cleaning and intervention actions in the forests Teioasa and 4 Stejari – we rearranged and designed the Forest of the 4 Oaks of Stephen the Great. Every year, this important touristic place in our area must be cleaned and taken care of.

The contestants at Teioasa Trail may opt for donating their prizes to the Fund, either at the moment of registration (checking the respective option on the form) or at the end of the competition. Those who do not wish to donate their prizes will receive them in cash.
