EGGER Biskupiec as a Partner of the Abentojra Rally 2019
On 7 September 2019, EGGER for the second time was a partner of an extremely interesting event, which is the orienteering rally - Abentojra. This event was organized for the sixth time by the Warmia and Mazury Walking and Cycling Orientation Club "Abentojra", this time in the vicinity of Olsztynek.
The representatives of our company could not miss the challange! Five of our colleagues and two of our team members with families faced the routes of 15 km and 25 km on foot. On the route located near the Olsztynek open-air museum, the competitors had the opportunity to compete in three different categories: family, walking and cycling. The rivalry took place at a distance of 15 km to 100 km.
Both amateurs and professionals took part in the rally. Adrenaline lovers, as well as families with children. It is a project created by enthusiasts of active recreation, who want to show how beautiful Warmia is. Participation in the Abentojra requires competition, physical fitness, the ability to use the map and compass.
We are proud that our colleagues managed to find all the checkpoints - which required long distances and many natural obstacles. Thanks to their involvement and participation in the "EGGER runs" initiative, more funds were raised for local charities. EGGER is committed to the health of its employees, so we promote and support the practice of running and trekking disciplines.
As part of the EGGER programme, the company provides funds to local charities for every kilometre run by our employees. After this event, we have already collected 5000 Euros, which will benefit one of the Biskupiec's organizations. EGGER encourages its employees to run by providing them with sportswear and refunding the fees for participation in organized runs.
Each kilometre travelled is 5 Euros for charity.
