The money was collected by selling kilometers through the participation of the so-called “blue runners.” These are recreational runners who dedicated their race for persons with autism. They sold their kilometers and raised funds for the association EDUS, which is engaged in helping children who struggle with the spectrum of autism, in order for them to be more included in society.

“More than 400 runners participated in the race. The winner is Osman Junuzovic from Doboj, the club ‘Doboj East’, and his time was 15 minutes and 15 seconds for 5 kilometers. In the women’s competition, the first place went to Kenyan with BH passport, Lucia Kimani.
