Running, cycling and rowing for a good cause. The result: proceeds in the amount of € 8,500! This campaign on the part of VolkerRail is entirely for the benefit of the Young VolkerWessels project in Armenia.
On Friday, 9 April 2010, VolkerRail organised this sportive sponsorship event on the company grounds at its office in Vianen. Some 50 runners, 10 cyclists and 10 rowers stood ready at the starting line to collect money on the basis of their performance. Their efforts ultimately yielded an amount of almost € 8,500.
The Young VolkerWessels project in Armenia.
This sponsorship campaign by VolkerRail supports the Young VolkerWessels project in Armenia. This project comprises the renovation of a former Soviet pre-school kindergarten to transform it into a community centre where children and their parents can come together for refresher training, cultural development, sports and more. The initiative to embrace this social project originated from Young VolkerWessels (a network of young professionals working for VolkerWessels). The construction of the centre will start at the end of this month, with delivery scheduled for the end of September 2010.
