Metis Global Group is honoured to sponsor the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII)’s Charity Virtual Run 2022 "Run for Society", from which all the funds collected will be 100% donated to support The Fred Hollows Foundation’s projects to fight against preventable blindness in over 25 countries worldwide. Backing this charity event embodies the core values of Metis: making positive impacts on people’s lives and the communities in which we work and live. We are delighted to be able to help those in need in our society.
To us, giving back to society is not only a responsibility but also a great honour. Apart from sponsoring CII’s recent charity run, Metis has made constant and continuous contributions to schools and education centres, supporting students’ academic and non-academic development, as well as easing the burden of underprivileged families. During the difficult time of the COVID-19 pandemic, Metis has also stepped forward to extend our support to affected families and children through their schools and charitable organisations.
CII’s charity run event is held from 18 to 30 August 2022 and includes half marathon (21km), 10km, 5km and 3km race categories, together with team arrangement. Both professional and amateur runners can participate and work out for the good cause.
The beneficiary of the event, The Fred Hollows Foundation, is an international development organisation whose core works include establishing quality eye care services in different communities, training local eye specialists, conducting research studies, and developing affordable technologies. Sponsoring the charity run, which in turn supports an organisation that brings hope to patients, is very meaningful to us.
