Six runners of 'Berlari Untuk Berbagi' succeeded in realizing their commitment to reach the finish line 42 km in the Berlin Marathon on the last September 29, 2013. They are Raty Ning, Melissa Karim, Esther Parapak, Alice Budisatrijo, Viga Nasution and Imam Adiwibowo.

They committed to run in Berlin in order to raise funds to help children with cleft lips in Indonesia through Peduli Hayandra Foundation, as well as helping people with multiple disabilities through Yayasan Wisma Tuna Ganda.

"We are aware of the fact that children are the future generation, yet it turns out into 80 % of unprivileged children with cleft lips dropout of school because of the emergence of the sense of inferiority and lacking of confidence. Moved from this phenomenon we finally thought to not let the cleft lips be a boundary for them to achieve their dreams.”(Raty Ning, CEO Pacto Ltd - runners from Berlari Untuk Berbagi)."
