SEAT, the European Health & Sport Company raced against childhood cancer

An impactful sport event took place at the SEAT factory in Martorell last Sunday, where several thousand SEAT employees, family members and friends enjoyed a day full of recreational sport and solidarity. In total, more than 4,500 adults and 1,500 children took part in the fifth edition of the SEAT Race, establishing a new record of participation with 20% more runners than last year and running for a new cause – research into childhood cancer.

The awarded Health & Sport Company 2019, SEAT successfully raised more than €13,500, which was donated to the Candela Bracelet project to support research into childhood cancer, thanks to the charitable contribution of €3 from each participant.

“We have turned this event into a day of celebration with work colleagues, family and friends who are all committed to collaborating with a social cause. Once again, we have demonstrated that SEAT is a large, supportive family”, said Dr. Rainer Fessel, Director of the Martorell factory.

The competition featured a 5K and a 10K combined departure run through the factory workshops. The children of the SEAT family competed in the Arona Kids Run, a 1,000 metre race in which 1,500 youngsters took part. In addition, there was a day-care service provided as well as a playground.

In the event also participated percussionist groups, zumba dancers, DJs and music. Some of the major activities included the Vintage Market, a jumble sale of second-hand goods sold in more than 25 pop-up stores, giving unwanted clothing and objects a second life. Similarly, there was no shortage of free parking, cloakroom service and catering for everyone present. 200 people cooperated to organise the event, including volunteer SEAT employees and entertainers.
