With our participation in the 8th Czestochowa Run held on April 9 in Czestochowa (Poland), we started the second season of the “Run and support” action. The PRESS GLASS team consisted of 60 people and we transferred a specific amount for charity purposes for each of them, supporting the treatment of three ill children.
The idea of the “Run and support” action was the initiative of PRESS GLASS employees. As the name suggests, the concept combines the promotion of running and healthy lifestyle and charity activities.
The team began the new season participating in the 8th Czestochowa Run with more than 1200 runners participating in total. 60 people took part under the colours of PRESS GLASS, including, among others, employees from the Nowa Wieś office and from the plants in Radomsko, Tychy and Tczew.
“The run in Czestochowa was our fifth start during the action. Even though the weather was not the best one, all the 60 runners managed to cover the entire distance: 10 kilometres. This is especially important when we consider the noble goal of our run”, says Gerard Plaze, one of the organizers of the action.
For each PRESS GLASS representative, we transferred the constant amount (PLN 80) for the charity purpose selected by participants in the action. Additionally, results better than the maximum duration of the run got an additional premium. The total support amounted to PLN 6392.
Participants in the action decided that the funds they collected would support three children suffering from severe diseases. A half of the entire amount (PLN 3196) supported Emil Koryczan while the rest (PLN 1598 each) supported Michał Bajerski and Aleksander Sukiennik.
