News> More than € 30,000 for a good cause: the first virtual EGGER run has ended.

More than € 30,000 for a good cause: the first virtual EGGER run has ended.

“EGGER runs” provides all employees with the opportunity to participate at running events and do good at the same time. The EGGER runs initiative was launched in 2010. EGGER donates 5 euros to charitable organisations for each kilometre run. The first virtual EGGER run took place on 12 September.

In the first virtual EGGER run more than 600 colleagues in 10 countries took the opportunity to collect donations for charitable organisations via an app. Our worldwide employees ran more than 6,000 kilometres! This is roughly comparable to the distance between our Rion plant and France and our newest plant in Lexington, North Carolina. The 6,000 kilometres total up in a donation of 30,000 €.

More than € 30,000 for a good cause

More than € 30,000 for a good cause: the first virtual EGGER run has ended.

"Due to the current situation, many planned running events, such as our factory runs, cannot take place. We are pleased that so many colleagues have taken advantage of the alternative and participated in the first virtual EGGER run. Together we were able to collect donations for families in need / research institutes and different charitable organisations in the region", the organisers say. The total of € 30,000 will be donated to charitable institutions and people in need in the region.
