Zehlendorf Charity Run for Schools in Nepal is Organised. "All for Water, Water for all"

Sep 19 2017 Comments 0

Around 300 cheerful runners from six Zehlendorf companies, the 4b class of Buschgraben elementary school and several african inhabitants from the accomodation center of Hohentwielsteig gathered for a charity run. Under the motto "All for water, water for all", they collected over 7.000 Euro by foot.

Clean water and a basic understanding for hygiene are taken for granted by us, but for more as one billion people, it seems just as a dream to open the water tap to drink from it. Therefore, the collected money will be donated to the association VIVA CON AGUA DE SANKT PAULI e.V.. The association collects money for the supply of clean drinking water, for sanitary systems and for the organization of hygiene training.

KNAUER organizes a Social Day each year where coworkers can participate for a good cause. Participation this year was very impressive, companies from the local industrial parks of Hegauer Weg and Hohentwielsteig confirmed their participation happily once more, these included HACH LANGE, MTS Systems, KARL WEISS Technologies, PENTA Gebäudeservice , Detlef Janke Galvanik and inhabitants from the local accomodation center also participated in this event.

I was once again impressed by the high commitment and drive of all fellow campaigners which ran along for this good cause. I am proud that KNAUER started this event with so much success. It is important that we as a company think outside the box and do something together to help children, in this case children in Nepal“, Alexandra Knauer reports, CEO of KNAUER Wissenschaftliche Geräte GmbH.

The Social Day was worth it for everyone: The donations amount to 7.000 Euros!
