The UNEX Run charity running project
For the second time, UNEX employees have run for a good cause − the goals of the UNEX Run charity running project do not just include doing something positive for one's own health, but also to financially support a selected charity activity.
This year, our runners decided to donate to the activities of the Šance Olomouc association at the Department of Paediatrics of the Medical Faculty Hospital of Olomouc, which helps children suffering from oncological and haematological diseases.
A total of 75 employees participated, whose starting fee contributed to the activities of the association with the wonderful sum of CZK 15,000. UNEX added to this sum with another CZK 35,000. This means that the ŠANCE association was granted a donation check in the total amount of CZK 50,000. The money will be used to purchase an infusion pump for administering cytostatics to children with leukaemia.
During their afternoon of sport, run participants also attended a workshop: First Aid with Emergency Resuscitation which was led by an instructor from the Olomouc Region Medical Emergency Service. In addition to acquiring or refreshing first aid theoretical knowledge, everyone had the opportunity to have practical resuscitation experience as well.
Thank you to all of the runners; we are looking forward to next year at the third-annual UNEX Run corporate run!
