“Run and support” and help even more – the summary of 2017 campaign

“Run and support” campaign is getting more and more intense and PRESS GLASS workers get engaged in helping people in need more willingly and more often. Your sports achievements are impressive and the proof of unfailing engagement is the amount of nearly 42600 PLN, which was gathered during running campaign in 2017! How did you manage to achieve it? It’s time to summarise all sports events, in which you had an opportunity to participate last year.

GROUP RACES

Group running in Częstochowa, Radomsko, Tychy, Tczew, Słowik and in Varaždin in Croatia became an unwritten tradition of “Run and support” campaign. Participation of PRESS GLASS employees in group running events resulted in raising about 21000 zlotys. This money was donated directly to local public benefit organisations.

THE APPETITE GROWS WITH RUNNING – INDIVIDUAL COMPETITIONS

Sports competitions, as part of individual starts, resulted last year in raising a record-breaking amount – 21600 PLN. It was all possible thanks to 48 PRESS GLASS employees, who, in total, participated in more than 140 sports events in 75 Polish cities. Individual starts, as part of “Run and support” campaign, crossed the Polish border – in 2017, there took place the first finished run during a half marathon in the capital of Hungary.

Money “raised during individual starts” were donated to 5 charges of “Zdążyć z Pomocą” Foundation, charges of “Siepomaga” Foundation and “Cała Naprzód” Association, as well as to organisations, which have their headquarters nearby our plants. We supported “Koniczynka” Association of Families and Guardians of the Handicapped from Radomsko, “Świetlikowo” Hospice from Tychy, Complex of Special Facilities from Tczew and “Mozaika” Foundation from Częstochowa.

WE RUN, CYCLE, MARCH IN NORDIC WALKING COMPETITIONS AND… WE CAN’T GET ENOUGH!

On the 16th of September 2017 in Tczew, we also inaugurated “Sport and support” campaign, which boosted the number of sports disciplines with Nordic walking and cycling. From that point, our employees can pursue their sports passions while participating not only in running competitions. Inauguration of the action took place during 11th Urban Cycling Rally in Tczew and resulted in raising 2500 PLN, which was donated to Amelka – who is under the care of “Zdążyć z pomocą” Foundation.

PLANS? TO HELP EVEN MORE!

“Run and support” campaign was inaugurated in 2015 with a group start during the 7th Running Event in Częstochowa. First individual starts, as part of the campaign, were held in 2016. In 2017, we inaugurated “Sport and support” campaign, which extended the running event with cycling and Nordic walking. What will 2018 bring? All we know is that we want to help even more! We keep our fingers crossed for your future starts and successes.
