Τhe NOC of Albania organized a dedicated event on the World Walking Day, to promote sport for all through walking, but also the opportunity to hand down messages of peace and hope through sport.

This day brought together around 100 different people of different ages at the event venue (inhabitants, athletes, volunteers…) by respecting the social distance and wearing masks, but also on social networks by joining the social campaign with hashtag #worldwalkingday. Many athletes and Olympians came to support the movement by joining the collective march and encouraging people who were around the event to practice physical activity by donating some T-shirts.

The event consisted of a 2km walking by stopping in 9 different sports activities such as Canoeing, Cycling, Basketball, Karate, Taekwondo, Judo, Running, Long Jump, and Archery.

The Albanian NOC team was able to count on the support of the Albanian Federations and the organization Special Olympics Albania.

A report was broadcasted on the national channel RTSH Sport Albania and exposes the different messages conveyed for the campaign.
