Siemens Greece and NGO Kinitiko Ergastiri joined forces for a good cause at this year’s Athens Half Marathon 

  Siemens Greece employees and members of the sports club for people with disabilities ‘Kinitiko Ergastiri’ joined forces and ran the 5km race of the 11th Athens Half Marathon together to support a good cause. Additionally, Siemens Greece raised money which will be used as a donation to ‘Kinitiko Ergastiri’ for the purchase of sports equipment.  

A total of 60 runners from the Siemens “Fit4Life” running team and the “Kinitiko Ergastiri” team were in downtown Athens on Sunday March 19th and participated in the 5km race sporting the message “We run together – Athens Half Marathon 2023”. Through this initiative Siemens aimed to support the great work of “Kinitiko Ergastiri” NGO by raising awareness and through a monetary donation. The company tripled the participation fee of each of its employee that participated in the 5km race and donated the sum to the NGO.     

Kinitiko Ergastiri is a non-profit sports club, founded in 2012 and supports people with disabilities. Through an organized framework, the sports club provides therapeutic and competitive sports programs. In addition, the club implements socializing and recreation programs, especially prepared for the needs of its members. One of these activities was the participation at the 11th International Athens Half Marathon alongside the Siemens Greece running team.    

Siemens S.A. CEO, Dr. Vasilis Chatzikos, commented: “Giving back to the community and the people is an integral part of Siemens’ corporate culture. Through our personalized activities we aim to support worthy organizations such as ‘Kinitiko Ergastiri’. This year’s Athens Half Marathon was significant, as all of us ran together - like a bonded team - for a great cause which was to equip the NGO with upgraded sports equipment. We will continue to envision similar initiatives in the future!”.  

Eirini Koufaki, Head of Communications and P&O at Siemens S.A., added: “We were impressed by the members of ‘Kinitiko Ergastiri’, by the love and dedication for what they do. Knowing the children and their caregivers, it was clear that this partnership would fill all of us with strong emotions! Sunday’s race proved exactly that, that TOGETHER we become better, we achieve more!”  

Dimitra Dimaki, president of the sports club for people with disabilities ‘Kinitiko Ergastiri’ commented: “I would like to cordially thank Siemens and its running team for the excellent cooperation and the love that they showed to our Athens Half Marathon 5km team. This joined activity is an important initiative to raise awareness around disability issues. Siemens’ efforts for inclusion and social inclusivity for people with disabilities are touching, and we are grateful for this cooperation. We hope that this initiative will be the first of many in the future so that the disability community can be empowered. On behalf of everyone, children, parents and coaches we express our deep appreciation for Siemens and look forward to similar activities in the future!”.
