A step in service of good – Umicore Nowa Ruda at Poland Business Run!
At Umicore, we believe that supporting others is not just a duty but also a privilege. This time, our team took another step in serving those in need by participating again in the charitable Poland Business Run.
Running to help
The Poland Business Run is an extraordinary initiative by a foundation of the same name, which has been supporting people with mobility impairments and post-mastectomy needs for years, assisting in the acquisition of wheelchairs, rehabilitation, and prosthetics. Although the original event takes place in Kraków, it allows participation for those who, for various reasons, cannot make it there.
In 2020, when the world faced challenges from the pandemic, the organizers of Poland Business Run proved that nothing stands in the way of doing good. By enabling remote participation in a location of runners choice, they ensured the event could take place. They initiated a new trend that has since increased the number of eager participants yearly.
Crossing boundaries together
At Umicore, employees form a professional team and a community ready to take on challenges for the greater good. Our participation in the Poland Business Run is not just a race but an expression of our values and a commitment to creating positive change. Initiatives like these give us the strength to collaborate and demonstrate that we stand together in our daily work and any other situation when assistance is needed.
That's why we weren't surprised when 35 team members were eager to join the run!
Changing lives for the better
This year's run attendance did not disappoint the organizers! Thanks to it, and registration fees, we raised over 3,000 PLN. This entire amount will be dedicated to those in need and used to purchase new wheelchairs, prosthetics, and rehabilitation services for the beneficiaries!
We are immensely proud that our company is shaping innovative technologies and social values that change lives for the better. Through this run, we transcended physical boundaries and showed that even a single step can make a difference.
