On May 25th KeepCalling took part in Sibiu’s Half Marathon 2013. Seven of its employees participated in two of the sections of the competition (the 5 km race and the 21,09 km half marathon) and supported various social causes: Sibiu Red Cross, YouthBank, Animal Life, and several others. Of the seven KeepCalling employees who got involved in the event, six ran the 5 km race and one ran the entire half marathon.
Of the seven KeepCalling employees who got involved in the event, six ran the 5 km race and one ran the entire half marathon.
KeepCalling’s employees supported their favourite causes in the program through the participation fees which were donated to these charity projects. The registration fee for the 5 km section was $12, while the fee for the half marathon was $24, therefore the total amount donated by KeepCalling was $96.
In addition to the donated fees, the Half Marathon projects could also be supported through individual donations. Any person could support a certain runner and the cause they ran for with a fixed sum of money.
Sibiu’s Half Marathon was a very interesting initiative with a double purpose: outdoor exercise and involve as many people as possible by actively supporting the local community. KeepCalling couldn’t miss this great event and was honored to get involved.
One of KeepCalling’s main values is giving something back to the community. This explains why, over its 10 years of activity, the company got involved in many other charity programs. Since KeepCalling is an international company, it had the opportunity to participate in various social or cultural programs, to donate money, or to take part in volunteering activities. Social responsibility is one of the values promoted by KeepCalling both on a local and on a global level.
