Yellow Ribbon is a set of educational activities aimed at giving ex-offenders and their families a second chance for a decent life. The highlight of the year-round events is the Yellow Ribbon Run. The ambassador of The Yellow Ribbon Run is the Czech actor and screenwriter Petr Čtvrtníček. He is also the drummer of the prison band Wsedě from Kurim Prison, which accompanies the events connected with the Yellow Ribbon Project. The Yellow Ribbon project is co-organized by the Prison Service of the Czech Republic, the non-proﬁt organization RUBIKON Centrum and the Probation and Mediation Service.
The exhibition was supported by a grant from the South Moravian Region. www.yellowribbon.cz
Yellow Ribbon Run (YRR) is a charity-sports event that since 2016 has drawn attention to the importance of re-integrating people with a criminal past. It connects people across society. Members of the general public, prisoners, ex-prisoners, prison staff, probation officers, officials and others run side by side. In 2019, 600 runners took part in a huge relay race in Prague.
