How far can you run for charity?
Running to beat the famine in Africa: the Gläserne Manufaktur at the 5th Dresden UNICEF run.
“How far are you running for charity?” is the motto of the fifth UNICEF run staged this year in Dresden. Once again, the Dresden UNICEF work group is inviting runners from all age groups as well as company teams, classes and associations to the Blasewitz forest park on 3 September 2017, from 10 am. The aim is to do a good deed by running laps. You can already register on the website.
In 2017, the Gläserne Manufaktur is supporting UNICEF-AG Dresden for the second time and is standing by their side logistically with a T6, financially and with public relations work. Furthermore we will be well represented by our own team and Volkswagen Sachsen GmbH will double the total sum raised by their employees who are running.
In 2016, around 250 runners collected donations of over €11,000. This year we aim to better that. On the day of the event, the participants can run as many laps as they like on a 500-metre forest track for charity from 11 am to 1 pm. Grown-ups and children alike can enjoy colourful fringe events.
How the run works:
The UNICEF run is suitable for all age groups and performance levels: anyone can join in and do a good deed – whether school classes, clubs, company teams or individuals. The participants themselves can either decide how much they would like to donate for each lap they run or find a sponsor (e.g. family member, friend, companies or similar), who will donate a specific sum of money.
Purpose of donation:
The money raised at the 5th Dresden UNICEF run will go towards the UNICEF project “Fighting famine in Africa”. Millions of children are affected by severe famine in many African countries as well as in Yemen. Triggered by climate change, droughts, war, armed conflicts and economic crises, these children are suffering from life-threatening malnutrition and diseases. UNICEF helps the children affected locally with medicine, additional food that is essential for survival and clean drinking water.
