Running for a good cause
Zurich’s Charity Run
People run to be healthy, to be fit, or to win. But there’s one more good reason to step into those trainers for run4kids...
This charity run has become a real Zurich tradition, and all proceeds from the event are used to benefit organisations committed to helping children in Switzerland. The much-loved event, which has been taking place since 2001, used to be linked to the Finance Forum but has been run independently by the Cleven Foundation since 2013.
Every year, around 800 members of staff from numerous companies take part in run4kids to support children who are sick, disadvantaged and in need of a helping hand. Half of the proceeds from the run go to fit4future, Switzerland’s biggest primary school project designed to promote exercise and healthy living.
