Movement Moves ...

Throughout the whole of Germany, the Kinder laufen für Kinder (Children run for Children) initiative organises smaller and larger charity runs with children and young people. True to its motto of ‘move to make things happen’, the initiative collects donations for every kilometre run, in line with the sponsorship principle – these funds then benefit various selected charitable projects and organisations.

Currently, these are the Klinik-Clowns e.V. in Germany, the Casadeni children’s home in Peru and the Save the Children children’s rights organisation. In the 2016/2017 school year, the total of more than 26,500 participating pupils and students ran and collected around €300,000 for the good cause. As the organisation and execution of these runs incur expenses and costs which may not to be paid-out from the donations, we, as a company, became sponsors of this initiative in 2009. In addition, our employees also become actively involved, for example, by volunteering as stewards (corporate volunteering) at the charity run in Munich or the Zott Anniversary Run.
