Tarifold supports for the second consecutive year the Special Olympics

Tarifold was present alongside the association Special Olympics during the race in Lingolsheim with two teams to support an important cause: the self-fulfillment of people who live with a mental handicap through sport.

It is important for me to participate in this event because we could all one day be concerned by a disability. Sport is a way to stretch limits and doing something right at the same time is even better.

Laetitia Gonzalez Niess, sales assistant, who opened the race for the women’s team

 

In France, Special Olympics works with a network of partners to offer children, adolescents and adults the opportunity to experience the joy of sport. 15 solidarity races are organized every year with over 4000 runners involved. All benefits from the race have been donated to the Special Olympics Association France to offer each year nearly 150 sport events for more than 20,000 people with mental disabilities.

The race was held on April 21 at the Lingolsheim fitness trail. Two Tarifold teams have accepted the challenge: a women’s and a men’s team ran in a 4 x 2.7 km relay. The company’s employees who travelled to Lingolsheim from all around the world (France, Germany, Spain, Greece, Russia, etc.) promised to participate in the race again next year to support this important cause.

The important thing is to participate! Tarifold has again this year endorsed this motto by encouraging its employees to take part in this race in favor of childhood. This participation is consistent with Pasteurdon, actions for the autism research, also supported by our company for many years. They are both part of the Sustainable Development policy and social actions Tarifold is developing for years, which, although is by vocation a place of work and wealth creation, is not less a place of humanism putting human values in the midst of our concerns.

Yves Revenu, President of the company.
