Porsche workforce raises 200,000 euros for the Make-A-Wish Foundation
The first Porsche Virtual Run has raised 200,000 euros for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. More than 2,300 Porsche employees around the world laced up their running shoes from 17 September to 3 October and covered a total of 67,559 kilometres for the cause.
Porsche AG originally offered a prize of 50 cents for every kilometre ran, but increased the donation to three euros per km after being moved by employees’ keenness to support the project, and the number of wishes the foundation hoped to grant. In just a few days, the first of them will experience their own personal and special moment of happiness.
The varied wishes of young people
A James Bond adventure day, a house on stilts with a slide for the garden or a winter weekend with a friend – the wishes listed by those the foundation hopes to help are as varied as the illnesses they and their families have to deal with. With the fulfilment of their most desired wishes comes the hope that this positive experience will mobilise unimagined strength in the fight against the conditions the individuals face.
Whether in Taiwan, Switzerland or Australia – in more than 35 countries, our colleagues have drawn motivation from the numerous wishes. Many have gone the famous extra mile. True sportsmanship in the spirit of social responsibility.
