Since 2007, Software AG’s employees have been supporting people in need through our MoveYourFeet Charity Campaign.
With each kilometer we run, swim and walk we help many people in need around the world. We have so far accumulated a staggering 81.575 kilometers. The secret is that everyone takes part– from sports enthusiasts (including 38 employees who have run non-stop for the past 10 years) to complete beginners. With the support of Software AG, the Software AG Foundation and employees we have already donated more than €300,000 to charitable organizations.
Here are some of our success stories worldwide:
RUNNING CONNECTS PEOPLE. Almost 4,800 runners from around 250 companies started running in the Darmstadt Company Run. Software AG Germany took part once again with 63 highly motivated runners and collected a fantastic 340 kilometers for our MoveYourFeet Charity Campaign.
THE JOURNEY IS THE DESTINATION. The atmosphere was electric when 63,776 runners from 2,419 companies prepared to set off on the J.P. Morgan Corporate Race the world’s largest corporate running event. Under optimal conditions in Frankfurt they ran the 5.6 kilometer race. There were 54 runners from Software AG Germany who racked up a total of 302.4 kilometers.
IMPRESSIVE MILEAGE. Software AG Malaysia runners literally took to the streets to pound the tarmac in the Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2017. The run started in the heart of Kuala Lumpur and passed through a host of attractions in the city like the Lake Gardens, the colonial architecture railway station and Merdeka Square among others. The team was very happy to have started a beautiful Sunday with a healthy activity, contributing to a charitable atmosphere and achieving 211 kilometers.
KEEP RUNNING IN BRAZIL. Employees in Software AG’s Sao Paulo office got together to run in support of one of the most important children and teens cancer treatment association Graacc – Winning over Children’s Cancer.
We are proud to be a part of this great story, doing good and keeping fit for the extra mile.
