This year once again, we want to run together for a good cause—the fifth annual ZwickRoell Runs the World challenge starts on August 5th.
Something special to note this year is that in addition to employees and friends, we would like all of our customers to run with us. No matter what country they are in or whether they are a machine operator or a laboratory manager, everyone is welcome to participate.
The challenge begins on August 5th and will last 60 days. Our goal is to collectively run, walk, and hike 120,000 km. This year, participating is easier than ever—all kilometers can be recorded via a web app from ZwickRoell. All relevant information for employees and how to invite customers/partners will follow shortly.
Finally, and most importantly: If we reach our goal, ZwickRoell will donate €60,000 to a good cause. Employees and customers can make suggestions for activities/organizations. There is just one condition: the employee or customer must be actively involved in the activity/organization. You can also support initiatives/organizations that provide aid to people experiencing hardships due to the corona virus, or even organizations that find themselves in hardship situations due to the pandemic.
We hope to have many participants so that we reach 120,000 km.
What is the ZwickRoell Runs the World project about?
- ZwickRoell employees from all around the world run 60 days for a good cause.
- The total distance to be covered in the 60 days is 120,000 km.
- If we succeed in running 120,000 km in 60 days, ZwickRoell donates € 60,000 to charitable organizations.
How much money will ZwickRoell donate?
If the 120,000 km are achieved, ZwickRoell will donate € 60,000 to various charitable organizations. Should our employees not be able to complete the full distance, no money will be donated.
To which charitable organizations will ZwickRoell donate money?
This year the full amount will be donated to organizations around the world, which are selected and personally supported by our employees and customers.
The charities will be chosen once the project has been completed.
