run4kids 30 October 2016

30 October 2016 – Close to 1,000 employees from 24 Zurich-based companies were joined by numerous individual runners to take part in this event in Zürichhorn on 30 October 2016. Many of them were reminded of their worthwhile efforts on the following day thanks to their aching muscles. The proceeds of CHF 204'656.55 from the 2016 run have been allocated to the Chance Foundation for Critically Ill Children at Zurich Children’s Hospital Stiftung-Chance für das kritisch kranke Kind and fit4future, two organisations that have been campaigning for well-being and healthy living among children in Switzerland for a number of years.
