A charity event at Helsinki Seafarers' Centre.

On Monday, 6 June, a charity event was arranged at Helsinki Seafarers' Centre where funds were raised for the Mercy Ships -organization.

Almost 30 people from different seafarers associations gathered on a sunny afternoon at the Vuosaari Seafarers' Centre, where Ialina Buckbee from the Finnish Seamen's Service instructed a warm up for the upcoming running event.

Each participant ran or walked either a 5 or a 10 kilometer course, after which everyone got to enjoy some food grilled by the chefs from Viking Line, Timo and Make.

The Mercy Ships Run 2022 was already arranged on May 12 in Mariehamn in combination with Aaland Maritime Day.  As last year, it was decided to hold an event in Helsinki as well.

Thank you to all the participants!
