New Economic Start 2012

On September 23, 2012, the NES community including students, professors, alumni and staff participated in the fourth annual NES 5K Charity Run – New Economic Start 2012. This year, in one day the run took place in seven countries, nine cities! Along with Moscow, where the NES charity run tradition began in 2009, alumni and friends joined the run in Beijing, Hong Kong, London, Stockholm, Amsterdam, New York, Madison (Wisconsin) and Stanford (California)!


The New Economic School and the Non-Profit Partnership “NES Alumni and Friends” would like to thank American Appraisal for supporting the NES run through donations for four consecutive years.

We would also like to thank the Moscow Palace of Children’s (Youth) Creativity (Московский городской Дворец детского (юношеского) творчества), for allowing us to hold the run in Moscow on the park’s territory and helping organize this event.

All donations, which will go to the NP “NES Alumni and Friends” Charity Committee for educational and developmental projects for children of the Obidimo orphanage in the Province of Tula, Russia (180 km outside of Moscow). In total, approximately $4,000 were collected: in Moscow 92,000 rubles were collected in donations, Beijing participants donated 2,470 RMB, in Hong Kong – 3,000 HKD, and UK participants donated 130 GBP.  Thank you for your support!

We would like to say a special thank you to all of the organizers and volunteers who made this memorable event possible!  We are very grateful to Danila Deliya (MAE’2007), who has helped us with the online registration for New Economic Start for every New Economic Start race. And many thanks to our alumni ambassadors in different countries, who organized and united NES alums and friends around the world for this event!
