At Mars, we care about communities, while creating the world we want tomorrow. Mars CE associates joined forces to take collective action to help company’s long-term charity partner – SOS villages – because every step counts. The aim of this challenge was to “walk” from Prague to Bucharest by adding up all participants’ total steps. Nearly 300 Associates achieved together over 144 000 000 steps, which represents the distance of 104 000 km to support people in need. As a result of reaching the objective, Mars Central Europe donates 5 000 EUR to SOS villages to split in each of the 4 markets: Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania.
The company takes bold actions to create a planet, where all people can thrive and do something good not only for the planet, but also for themselves and their communities. These actions include the company’s internal challenge during which associates stayed active and which resulted in a good deed.
“The past year was challenging for everyone. Due to restrictions and working from home, many people stopped doing sports, and thus, forgot to take care of themselves. Once the life started slowly getting back to normal, we wanted to inspire our associates to be more active and do something good for themselves and for those who are less fortunate. It was amazing to see such firm participation and strong team spirit,” said Zuzana Losakova Corporate Affairs Director Central Europe
