This year, charity runs took place once again throughout Germany. The runs not only offer the opportunity to keep fit but also set a statement for diversity and solidarity.
Organized by the usd Responsibility Circle, we supported our colleagues in their joint participation in the charity runs "Lauf für mehr Zeit" of the Aidshilfe Frankfurt and "Run Of Colours" of the Aidshilfe Köln.
"As IT professionals, we spend a lot of time in front of our computers, so the charity runs are a great opportunity to be active together and do something worthwhile at the same time," reports our colleague Sebastian Schlegel. "Many thanks to our colleagues who ran with us. We are happy that we were able to round up the participation fee and thus donate a total of 1,000 €."
