Description

TO MAKE A DONATION CLICK THE "TICKETS" BUTTON

In the spirit of true citizen diplomacy, 14 Athlete Ambassadors were chosen to represent the Columbus region at Marathons/Half Marathons in one of three of Columbus' sister cities: Curitiba, Brazil; Dresden, Germany; and Hefei, China.

These individuals demonstrated a passion for life in Columbus, significant running history, and a desire to deepen their understanding of the power of people to people interaction through representing their city as an athlete ambassador on foreign soil. Each had a "wow" factor--as we say--that made them stand out as excellent representatives of Columbus.

By donating to these individuals, you are opening the door for citizen diplomacy and increasing the impact that our community has on combating the worlds challenges--specifically creating peace, not conflict.

Background: Sister Cities International was created at President Eisenhower's 1956 White House conference on citizen diplomacy. Eisenhower envisioned an organization that could be the hub of peace and prosperity by creating bonds between people from different cities around the world. By forming these relationships, President Eisenhower reasoned that people of different cultures could celebrate and appreciate their differences and build partnerships that would lessen the chance of new conflicts. Sister Cities International creates relationships based on cultural, educational, information and trade exchanges, creating lifelong friendships that provide prosperity and peace through person-to-person "citizen diplomacy."
