Eugene, US, June 22, 2009 - Success for the charity event held in aid of children "Datalogic Fun Run Charity Challenge" organised by Datalogic Scanning, Inc., a company of Datalogic Group. The event took place on the 20th of June at the premises of Datalogic Scanning in Eugene, Oregon (US).
The event was organised in collaboration with the charity association "Eugene Active 20-30 Club", which has been taking care of children and their needs in the area of Eugene and Springfield for over eighty years. The challenge registered 180 male and female participants of all ages, employees of Datalogic and members of no-profit organisations, "help the children" volunteer associations and local schools. The fun-filled race/walk covered 5 miles around the area surrounding the complex of Datalogic Scanning.
Kiddies too joined in the enjoyment in the fun under 8's "Kid's Run", but also in other colourful activities, entertainments, face painting, music, snacks and much more.
The "Charity Challenge" raised funds that will be used to help children, to sustain schools and parks for younger children.
The event, which has reached its third edition, proves Datalogic's awareness towards the needs of organisations and schools, which in these times of economic crisis, have very few resources available to dedicate to educational services and to social-recreation activities for children and their needs. To ensure the initiative's success, which each year receives growing approval and participation, the support of employees of Datalogic Scanning was fundamental, who fostered the initiative enthusiastically, contributing significantly in the success of the "Charity Challenge".
This last edition was so successful that Datalogic Scanning will organise the event again next year, with renewed enthusiasm and even more participants.
