Lend your eyes for a good cause!
Radiologists depend on their vision
as part of their job.
But what about the people who lost their vision?
In order to raise awarness and money for Svetluska,
a Czech organisation that supports visually impaired people,
Barco is organizing a charity run during ECR 2017.
October 14, 2016 during the biannual Czech National Radiology Congress Barco
teamed up with Svetluska,
a charity organisation that helps people with severe visual impairments and Aura Medical our valued Czech partner
and organised a run to raise awareness, concern and sympathy for the amazing group of people - the visually impaired.
Over 120 Czech radiologists participated in the run.
The runners ran hand in hand with visually impaired people guiding them during a 2-km or 4-km run.
Between them, the runners raised ca. EUR 4,000 for Svetluska
as all of them bought unique commemorative t-shirts sponsored by Aura Medical & Barco.
The event was so indelible that Barco has taken up the idea of organising the run during ecr in Vienna.
as a professional visualisation company we feel that it is our duty to support those who cannot see.
Consequently, on behalf of Barco nv and Svetluska we would like to invite
the radiology community and all Barco partners
to participate in the Barco run in Vienna Saturday March 4th 2017.
