World Games 2022 donated $54,000 to support Ukrainian athletes and sport
The World Games 2022 has donated $54,000 to support Ukrainian athletes and sports in response to the destruction brought by the Russian invasion.
Organizers of the competition pledged to commit $1 from each ticket and piece of merchandise sold since April 1, 2022, to aid the Ukrainian community and national sport through the Olympic Solidarity Fund. That final total was $54,000.
“Solidarity all over the world for Ukraine is so huge,” the International Olympic Committee member and World Athletics Vice-President Sergey Bubka said. “It’s amazing. Thank you very much for your support, for your belief in us. We will never forget your support. Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart, and this is something very special.”
