Registering at the Danske Bank Vilnius Marathon, you can contribute to your chosen charity.


Rimantas Kaukėnas Charity Group’s team “Fight Cancer” is probably already known by many sports enthusiasts participating in the annual Danske Bank Vilnius Marathon. Like every year, the Foundation will run for a good cause – in the upcoming marathon, the team will traditionally run for the children’s secret dreams which they describe in their letters while spending time in the hospital. Your love and attention are very welcome, so we invite you to “Fight Cancer” together and contribute to small and huge miracles!

Rimantas Kaukėnas Charitable Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded in 2012. We operate in the entire Lithuania giving charitable assistance and spreading hope, strength and joy to children who have been diagnosed with cancer.

Our goal is simple: to make life easier for seriously ill children and their families, to help them get through the trauma of the haunting diagnosis, to support through their long journey towards recovery by providing the necessary medical equipment and medications that are not covered by insurance and assist in arranging important treatments, rehabilitation and surgeries in Lithuania and abroad. We try to bring light and joy in to the lives of seriously ill children by making their most secret dreams come true and visiting them at home or in the hospital.

With donation of 10 euros and more, you will receive a gift – special “Fight Cancer” t-shirts.



With the help of sports and discussions brought to students twice a week throughout the academic year, as well as educational trips, the social program “Youth can” empowers them by giving life skills, experiences and self-confidence needed to meet their potential and succeed. “Youth Can” was established in 2015, currently it reaches 250 teenagers in 16 remote regions of Lithuania. The organizer of “Danske Bank Vilnius Marathon”, PI “Tarptautinis maratonas” has already gave 250 free registrations to the teenagers to the running event. With your help the program will be able to bring all the students to the capital of Lithuania to participate in the biggest running celebration together.
