EVRAZ Holds 5th Charity Race

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, May 28, 2019. EVRAZ Holding’s 5th sports festival and charity race took place next to Sovremennik Concert Hall in Nizhniy Tagil on May 26, with some 4,000 people taking part, EVRAZ Holding Ural’s Corporate Communications Center reports.

1,200+ people joined in the race, including (for the first time) children with disabilities from Nizhniy Tagil Elementary School/Kindergarten 105 and a special-needs school in Kachkanar. The race gathered together adults and children from Nizhniy Tagil, Kachkanar, Yekaterinburg, Lesnoy, Kushva, Ivdel, Verkhnyaya Salda, Petrokamenskoye, Nikolo-Pavlovskoye, Bashkarka, Brodovo, and Gornouralsky. Children ran a one-kilometer race and adults ran a five-kilometer one. The race results are now available at www.evraz-sport.ru.

The race’s youngest runner Viktoria Karelina is only five, the oldest ones, Yuri A. Araslanov and Alexei I. Vassilyev, are both over eighty.

The Managing Director of EVRAZ Nizhny Tagil Metallurgical Plant (EVRAZ NTMK) and EVRAZ Kachkanar Ore Mining & Processing Enterprise (EVRAZ KGOK) Alexei Kushnarev, Mayor of Nizhniy Tagil Vladislav Pinayev, and Chair of Nizhniy Tagil Duma Alexei Pyrin all welcomed the runners at the start.

‘The race is the annual event the locals always look forward to. This is more than just a competition, this is a large-scale town festival that increasingly more people join every year. It’s great to see so many EVRAZ employees (including managers) and Nizhniy Tagil and Kachkanar town council officials running the race together,’ says Alexei Kushnarev.

The charity race runners contributed nearly RUB 100,000 in donations; EVRAZ is going to add exactly as much, with the entire amount going to Nizhniy Tagil Elementary School/Kindergarten 105 and a special-needs school in Kachkanar. The money will be used to purchase sports equipment and appliances.
