Luxembourg, 16 November 2016 - INTRASOFT International, a global ICT company, has taken part in the 34th Athens Authentic Marathon on Sunday, November 13 in the city of Athens, Greece, organised by the Hellenic Athletics Federation, SEGAS.
This year INTRASOFT ran to support the funding activities of Make-A-Wish Greece (https://makeawish.gr/), helping to fulfil the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.
Employees and their families turned up to take part and support the company’s initiative which falls under a broad Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) set of activities planned for the remainder of 2016 and 2017. Our runners took part in the 5km and 10km races, joining the over 50,000 participants celebrating this year’s event.
A marathon race like no other, the Athens Authentic Marathon attracts global attention on an annual basis as world class runners join the thousands of those who have in the past ‘re-enacted’ the actual marathon course of 42.2 km from the town of Marathon on the Attica shoreline to the finish line in central Athens. #teamINTRASOFT’s substantial turnout underlined our commitment to not only make a difference in the societies where we operate, but to also come together as teams.
The mission of Make-A-Wish International is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Founded in Phoenix, Arizona in 1980, when a group of caring volunteers helped a young boy fulfil his dream of becoming a police officer, Make-A-Wish is one of the world's leading children's charities. After the start of Make-A-Wish in the United States, interest in granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions quickly spread to other nations. With the help of generous donors and over 32,000 volunteers, Make-A-Wish has collectively granted approximately more than 350,000 wishes worldwide since 1980.
