Moscow, Russia – September 5, 2019. Cherkizovo Group, Russia's largest meat producer, co-sponsored a charity race held by SAP in Moscow's Izmaylovsky Park. The event helped raise over RUB 1.5 million which will be donated to cover education fees in orphanages.
On the last day of summer, the fifth charity race held by SAP CIS and the Arifmetika Dobra charity foundation welcomed 400 people in Moscow's Izmaylovsky Park. Co-sponsoring the event, Cherkizovo Group finished runner-up in a 10 km corporate race, winning silver medals.
The race raised funds for Respublikansky and Izhevsky orphanages in the Republic of Udmurtia. This year, the event brought over RUB 1.5 million – enough to teach the core subjects throughout the upcoming academic year.
Charity races have been gaining traction all over the world. Every year, many thousands of people travel hundreds of kilometers to show their support for the cause, conquer the distance, and help those in need. This year, Cherkizovo Group already took part in the Running Hearts Green Marathon in Moscow, which was organized by the Naked Heart Foundation and Sberbank.
