In April 2020, Koktebel Jazz Party, together with the Rossiya Segodnya Information Agency and the Krasny Kvadrat media group, launched the Doctor Jazz Party online marathon in support of Russian medical workers and hospitals during the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. The marathon started on International Jazz Day, April 30, at ria.ru, the leader of the Runet, and on RIA Novosti’s official VKontakte page. Doctor Jazz Party brought together jazz music stars from nine countries, including Russia, China, the United States, Brazil and Japan. The marathon lasted seven hours, and about two million people watched it.
