Do a Good Deed in Moscow on Sunday

Want to get some fresh air and do a good deed? Then don your winter gear and get yourself to Tagansky Park this Sunday for a very unique event.

Since the beginning of the winter, Mosgorpark has teamed up with Coca-Cola Hellenic and Sotsiobegom to organize a special program of free ice skating lessons every weekend for kids who wouldn't otherwise take to the ice. With assistance from sports professionals, 55 children between the ages of 12 to 17 from orphanages will spend two hours on the ice this Sunday maneuvering the slippery surface.

Volunteers are warmly welcome to get involved and help the children learn how to skate. Come and bring your skating kids — the weather and ice will be perfect!
