Some impressions from our colleagues

Alone at the start line - together to the finish!

Celebrating our 160th anniversary during a pandemic is a challenge. First and foremost, we all need to be as safe as possible, regardless of the activity.
But we also want to keep up the team spirit on this particular occasion. This inspired us to organize a charity run - for those who are especially in need of our help, namely children!
“Alone at the start line – together to the finish” – was the motto of our global charity run for UNICEF. 

Due to the current circumstances it was not possible for us to organize a "usual" charity run. But we did not let that stop us.
Each employee from thyssenkrupp rothe erde worldwide was free to decide which route they would walk or run on a certain day in October for the good cause.
Via a tracking app and corresponding interfaces, we were able to track all the kilometers run. The thyssenkrupp rothe erde management board supported this idea with €1 per kilometer walked or run per employee.

Nearly 1,000 employees have contributed to the result of 4,200 kilometers. Our thyssenkrupp rothe erde management board rounds up the result and will be donating €5,000 in total to UNICEF.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our charity run. Despite the circumstances, it was a huge success!
