(BOLLORE ) - The 6th edition of Bolloré Group's solidarity race, Marathon Day, was held this year from 23 to 30 September in a hybrid digital-physical format. Employees from all over the world came together with the same objective: to cover as many kilometers as possible by walking, running, cycling or dancing. In the end, 12,267 participants from 91 countries took up the challenge from all over the world, and together they covered 334,357 kilometers.
Once again this year, donations will be made to associations supporting youth and vulnerable populations in the countries that managed to mobilise the largest number of participants, in proportion to their numbers. In 2020, employees’ participation made it possible to support ten projects of local associations in the fields of education and youth empowerment.
"Over the years, Marathon Day has become an important event for our employees around
the world. In spite of the constraints due to the health situation in our different countries, we
wanted to maintain our solidarity race. By digitising the experience, we have brought together more than 12,000 employees, in 91 countries, to cover 334,357 kilometers together. I am proud of this huge commitment which reflects their generosity and echoes our values." said Cyrille Bolloré́ , Chairman and Managing Director of the Bolloré́ Group.
Created in 2016 by Cyrille Bolloré, Marathon Day brings together all Bolloré Group employees around the world every year in September.
