Commend and SKIDATA continue their partnership of a running competition for a good cause

The competition continues, as does the motto "Gegeneinander für ein Miteinander” (Against each other for another) - only the field of participants grows. The running competition between Commend and SKIDATA expands with COPA-DATA, Digital Elektronik, Salzburg Research and nic.at. In addition, the Salzburg Business Run is locally promoting the competition. This time, the entirity of earnings will go to the organization ‘Herzkinder Österreich.’

After an extremely successful "duel" last year, in which € 6,400 was raised for the children's cancer charity Kinderkrebshilfe Salzburg, Commend International and SKIDATA AG, together with the organizers of the Salzburg Business Run have decided to enter the next round. This time, however, not as a competitor, but as a challenger. In 2019, the two companies will no longer compete against each other, but will each challenge a different Salzburg company: Commend invites COPA-DATA to a running duel, SKIDATA its long-standing business partner Digital Elektronik. Both companies immediately responded to the challenge with an enthusiastic "challenge accepted!"

The Salzburg Business Run, with its team of highly experienced sports scientists , is the patron  of this competition and provides advice and support to all runners should they have any questions about running techniques or training programs.

On your mark, get set, go!

During the period from June 10 to September 12, 2019, all kilometers ran by employees of the six organizations will be recorded by the Strava app. In order to win the running competition, the dueling company with the highest average mileage  per participating employee wins.

The 'Grande Finale' will again take place as part of the Salzburg Business Run. For every kilometer run up to September 12, 19 cents will be donated for the organization Herzkinder Österrreich (https://www.herzkinder.at).

Wolfgang Zimmel, IT specialist at Commend International, is the creative inventor of the charitable running competition. His great passion: he runs for a good cause. In order to spread this idea, he also created the website www.werdepate.com

The project has already assumed such a dynamic that further participants are not excluded. The registration or opening of additional companies is still possible at any time, should there be further interest.  


Immediately before sending out this press release, the organizing committee of 'Gegeneinander für ein Miteinander' received the registration that the team the Salzburg Research Forschungsgesellschaft also challenged the employees of the registry for Austrian domains nic.at to this charitable running duel.
