Twice a year, IT employees of Zoolatech
run between 3 and 21 kilometers to help schools, charitable foundations, and others in need. This year, they are fundraising to help the Ukrainian army.
In total, they raised $3,500 (USD)—the company funded $30 per participant. In total, since February 2022, ZoolaTech has spent UAH 17 million to help the army, volunteers and employees. As a result of the war, the team fled to various cities across the globe. Some went alone, others in groups. Yet, despite the distance in their locations, they have come together albeit virtually to run using the sports app, Strava.
We talked to the runners about their motivation, their work during the war, and the role of sports in their lives.
