On the 22nd of September 2019 PRESS GLASS SA and PRESS GLASS d.o.o employees represented the “Sport and Support” campaign and took part in running competition in Varaždin on two distances: 5 and 21 km. The money raised (13,207.00 HRK) was donated to the charges of 5 facilities located near PRESS GLASS d.o.o. plant.
More than 400 people participated in the half-marathon. PRESS GLASS plants were represented by 30 people – 21 employees from Poland and 9 employees from Croatia. Our colleague Michał Maciejewski from PRESS GLASS SA won the first place in M35 category (time 1h 23min 33sec).
In a 5-kilometre run there took part more than 280 people, including 41 employees from Poland and Croatia. Kristijan Cesar from PRESS GLASS d.o.o. reached the finish line first and won 37th place in Open category (time 21min 44 sec).
Campaign’s organisers decided to divide the money raised (13,207.00 HRK) between the charges of the 5 following local facilities:
— “ŽIVOT RADOST” Association for disabled children and adults in Cestica,
— “GRIP” Association of therapeutic and recreational climbing in Varaždin,
— “PODRAVSKO SUNCE” Educational-training centre in Koprivnica,
— “Osmijeh” Association in Peterenec,
— “Društvo NAŠA DJECA” Association in Varaždin.
We are glad that at the starting line there appeared new faces representing “Sport and Support” campaign both in Polish and Croatian team. Congratulations to all participants for their successful start and individual sports successes. Thank you for the joint project – it was thanks to your engagement that more money was donated to people in need.
