On October 5 at the Vasil Levski National Stadium in Sofia the LIFE project "Egyptian Vulture New LIFE" joined the sports competition: the “Go Kids” Athletic League for 6-15-year-old children 2019.

Under the motto: Nature Lovers. Sports champions, nearly 420 children stood on the starting line and fight for victory. Each child received a special themed gift dedicated to the Egyptian Vulture. All participants had the opportunity to learn more about the species and for the relationship between the migration of young birds and the athletic league. The winners of the individual races and age groups, in addition to medals, were also rewarded with special materials related to the athlete in the wild - the Egyptian Vulture, which naturally inspires kids not to give up, no matter how difficult a challenge may seem.

During the event a BSPB team gave a lecture with the most curious facts about the species and the dangers that threaten it. The following quiz distinguished the most attentive listeners who were rewarded with themed gifts.

After the quiz, about 40 children joined the symbolic four laps of the stadium, exactly one mile long, in support of the international “A Mile for the Egyptian Vulture” project campaign.
