Teens4Unity - WHO ARE WE?
We are the Teens for Unity of the Focolare Movement and are present in 182 countries.
We are Christians but also belong to other religions and cultures that do not profess a religious creed.
We are united by one goal: to make universal brotherhood a reality by involving many other
teenagers in the world in this project.
WHAT DO WE BELIEVE IN?
Only love can change the world.
In the Gospel Jesus says, “Love one another as I have loved you”. We want these words to become a reality among all the people in the world.

The Young for Unity of the Focolare Movement
is sponsoring the third edition of the worldwide sports-relay: Run4unity.
Sports to build peace together.
After the first and second Run4Unity in 2005 and 2008
These young people will be the protagonists of
The youth from the Fiji Islands will start the event beginning with their local time. Through a link-up via internet, they will pass the "baton" to the next time zone. In a twenty-four hour period this marathon for peace will take place in all parts of the globe, participated by important personalities in the world of sports and culture, as well as civic and religious authorities.
The sports events will take place in significant sites which are symbols of peace, or across borders between countries in conflict or through cities where there is still a lot of tension: the goal is to bear witness to our commitment to build unity and peace everywhere.
Run4Unity 2008 was also a worldwide Expo of Brotherhood through various concrete actions through their local and international project "Let's Color our City." This initiative launched by the Teens for Unity in 2005, aims at 'coloring' every "gray area" of our cities with love: nursing homes, orphanages, areas where immigrants still need help to integrate into society, public parks to be cleaned up, camps or places where there are the marginalized. These groups of young people, in agreement with their city officials and linked among them through a universal website (www.teens4unity.net), are protagonists of active citizenship and promoters of a future of peace and unity among peoples.
The message of the Run4Unity 2012 opens an invitation to the participants to say "Yes" to their responsibility to face current challenges, becoming a strong and cohesive force within our pluralistic society (see attached message for more details).
