Our projects

T-MOBILE OLYMPIC RUN

Olympic Day is a global celebration of the founding of the International Olympic Committee in 1894, and every year, across the world, it is a day dedicated to sports events of all types. Since 1987, the Czech Olympic Committee has also participated in this celebration by organising running races for all age categories. Every year in June, tens of thousands of runners across the Czech Republic start to race at the same time in the T-Mobile Olympic Run. By competing, runners can also support the Czech Olympic Foundation.

CZECH OLYMPIC FOUNDATION

A charitable project of the Czech Olympic Committee that, with the support of Sazka (the lottery and betting company) and Czech Television, provides assistance to young athletes aged 6 to 18 from disadvantaged backgrounds. It funds specific requirements connected with their sports activities, such as equipment, membership fees or attendance of training camps. With the help of patrons from the ranks of Olympians and elite Czech athletes, it fulfils the sporting dreams and wishes of these children. Since 2012, 1 690 children have received support and over EUR 385 000 has been paid out.

  • SUCCESS: A training programme to strengthen good governance in sport which supports women in decision making positions in sports organisations. The project is managed by the Croatian Olympic Committee and eight women from each participating country - the Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovakia, Lithuania, France and Italy - are taking part.
