RUN AND CARE

 

Rompetrol Run and Care is the charitable cross organized by KMG International. It started in 2013, as part of the Group’s approach to encourage employees to lead an active and healthy lifestyle.

The company is committed to promote volunteering and sport activities among employees and their families, but also to our partners. We are proud to support causes with a significant impact in our community through and through this event we aim to help people with health problems.



 

Together for good deeds

 

Runners come together at the starting line determined to finish a competition that brings the best reward: helping others. Amateurs and seasoned runners, children, adults and grandparents, participants from Bucharest and from every corner of the country support each other and run together for a noble cause.

In 2018, over 300 employees from different companies in the Group, along with their families and business partners, ran for 5, 10 and 15 km, while the company donated $ 5 per kilometer to support social causes.
 

Beneficiaries

 

Following this year's "Rompetrol Run and Care" charity, all funds raised for the Edulier Association (around $ 10,000) will be allocated to support the education of children coming from needy families, as well as those with dyslexia, discalculia and dysgraphia.

The 2017 cross raised funds for “HOSPICE Casa Speranței” Foundation and for the “Association for Dravet and other Rare Epilepsies”. In the first case, the funds have been allocated to the medical care of patients living with incurable diseases, for social support and psycho-emotional counseling of patients and their families, while in the latter case the funds will be used to support partial medical costs and for the developing of activities dedicated to affected children in the day center.

In the past years, the company donated the funds raised to the M.A.M.E. Association and to Magicamp, NGOs that improve the quality of life for children with cancer and other serious diseases.

Over time, more than 3,000 of our colleagues, more than half of the Group’s employees, donated time and effort to support various social, environmental, health and educational initiatives for the benefit of the community.
