On April 20, 2024, a large charity run, Spartan Kyiv, organized by Oleksiy Vovk and Spartan Race Ukraine, took place on Trukhaniv Island in Kyiv.

Nearly two thousand participants registered for the event, each making a charitable contribution to support Ukraine's military intelligence and challenge themselves on obstacle courses of various difficulty levels.

"There were rope climbs, water crossings, sand, hills upon hills, just obstacles that needed to be overcome. And the biggest obstacle is the struggle with oneself, not to give up," shared Olexandra from Kryvyi Rih with Suspilne.
