All against Kohlstrung – Challenge achieved

Under the motto “1 cent per metre – 4 euros per lap”, Brother International GmbH held the Golden Ring for the fifth time this year. This time, the challenge “All against Kohlstrung” was also on the agenda, because a donation result of 20,000 euros was the goal – and the runners achieved it. Jörg-Stefan Schmitt (left, Head of Corporate Communications) and Yannick Müller (Corporate Communications) came to the Research House for the donation handover on 27 June. Managing Director Dirk Kammertöns (right) and Claudia Ries (Foundation Marketing) were very pleased about the visit.

The fifth edition of the charity run set a new record with 150 runners. The 3,485 laps run also represent a new record. In addition to employees and their families, business partners and friends of the printer manufacturer were once again invited to complete their laps for a good cause on the sports field on Huizener Straße in Bad Vilbel. FV Bad Vilbel, which Brother has supported for over 30 years, once again provided plenty of runners from its youth teams in addition to the premises.

“We try to motivate our runners a little more every year, so that ultimately we can keep increasing the amount donated to cancer research in Frankfurt. That’s why we also invited the foundation to be here for the first time and present itself, to give the good cause a tangible face. Our company motto at your side means not only standing by our customers, but also taking social and moral responsibility. That is why I am pleased that we have cleared the 20,000 euro hurdle” explains Brother Managing Director Matthias Kohlstrung.

In five years, 75,000 euros in donations have been collected.

We are already looking forward to the next edition of the Golden Ring Run and would like to thank you very much for your great commitment so far.
