THE CORPORATIONS RACE TO CONTRIBUTE 289, 000 RUBLES TO WWF
Part of the funds raised in the race will be given to charity. Every participant could choose to donate the money to WWF or to the “Life as a Miracle” fund, that helps children suffering from severe liver diseases.
"We became WWF partners because we are not indifferent to the future of Russia's flora and fauna. Unfortunately, in our country the issue of the wildlife preservation is not comprehensively addressed at the state level, and we consider it our duty to provide all possible support to the organizations that have taken on this difficult duty. WWF is one of our most responsible and important partners. We are very glad that our cooperation has been successful, and we have managed to raise money for the good of our country’s nature," said Tatyana Spurnova, the founder of the Corporations Race project.
Following the tradition, all runners, which reached the finish, were awarded medals, while the winners got a special prize - a video congratulation from Kostya Tszyu. The winner of the 10 km race received autographed boxing gloves from Kostya Tszyu.
"Charity is becoming part of the corporate culture, and this is a very good trend. Events such as the Corporations Race help companies to solve several tasks at a time: to organize team building for the employees, to promote sports and healthy lifestyle, and to take corporate social responsibility," said Irina Vorobyova, the fundraising director of WWF Russia.
The Panda team became the distinguished participants of the race. It represented the WWF supporters, who responded to the fund's call, joining the Corporations Race. In addition to the race, the participants could undergo a medical check-up, relax in a special area, take part in family quests and much more.
