On May 22, 2019 the 9th company run in Jena took place, in which employees of companies and institutions from Jena and surroundings took part. SOMAG AG Jena started this year for the first time with 10 runners. The common goal was to complete a 6 km run. The aim is to bring the colleagues of a company together beyond everyday work, to strengthen team spirit and to be active together.
In addition to fitness and exercise, the focus is also on social commitment. That is why part of the starting fee is donated to local partners and social projects. A total of 2,500 euros were donated this year to the "Paten für Demenz" project of the "Tausend Taten e.V." association. In this project, volunteers spend time with dementia patients and support them in their home environment. In addition, proceeds also go to the Hospiz- und Palliativ-Foundation Jena. We are pleased to be able to support these important projects through our participation in the run.
The record number of 3,247 runners proves that the company run is already an established event in Jena. We thank the organizers for this great event and we’re already looking forward to next year!
