Since its inception in 2016, Allianz World Run has supported SOS Children’s Villages on 32 projects in 28 different countries. The initiative seeks to inspire Allianz team members as well as their friends and family to undertake recreational physical activity and get you active by giving them the opportunity to tackle pressing global issues. Runs and challenges completed by participants through the course of this year’s Allianz World Run were tracked via the adidas Runtastic apps. Allianz will be contributing funds and providing aid to areas desperately needing support for every minute of their activity.
Held under the theme of “Run Together for Tomorrow”, Allianz World Run 2020 saw 12,261 participants from over 50 countries around the world cover a total distance of 1,940,116kms between 08 July to 05 October 2020.
1,103 participants from Sri Lanka took part in the event and covered 121,564kms, a distance equivalent to around 3 times the circumference of the Earth, helping our paradise island rise to the 3rd position on Allianz World Run 2020’s global leaderboard. Allianz Lanka’s clients and business partners too joined the initiative, helping the insurer raise more funds towards this worthy cause.
