Berlari untuk Berbagi is a runner community that was initiated by Sandiaga Uno since 2009. In 2011, YCAB became one of the beneficiary of Berlari untuk Berbagi. They ran in New York Marathon 2011 to help the underprivileged children. This year, BuB has come back to support our programs in women empowerment and education for underprivileged children through education-linked microfinance program.
In 2012, Anindya Bakrie was a lead a Chief of Mission for a number of runners who ran in New York Marathon. Each runner was able to choose a foundation that they would like to support and Sandiaga Uno, founder of Berlari untuk Berbagi, was willing to match the donation.
One of the runners who supported YCAB was Patrick Kalona. He had just come back from England and joined Berlari untuk Berbagi two years ago. He put a lot of efforts through exercises and practices for New York Marathon 2012 which was to be his first full marathon and charity event. Through Patrick Kalona’s support, YCAB raised fund in the amount 130 millions rupiah to be used for woman empowerment and education programs for underprivileged children.
