Founded in 2014 in Chengdu, China, PandaGOsport was founded by an international group of friends who wanted to encourage families to enjoy sports together. Since 2015, over 2,400 runners have participated in our events and raised more than CHF 14,000 for charity.
We believe that sport is an international language that creates positive connections around the world. In 2017, PandaGOsport found a second home in Zumikon, sponsored by a multinational team from Switzerland, France, England, Poland and Turkey.
After three fantastic events in the years 2017, 2018 and 2019, we look forward to many more families, who walk, run and have fun on the beautiful and natural paths around Zumikon. Why the panda? Thanks to global conservation efforts, the number of giant pandas is slowly increasing. This reminds us that we all share the responsibility to take care of ourselves, our children and the world in which we live.
We want to bring people together for a sporting activity, to provide an exciting event and to encourage movement among the population. With the proceeds of the participation fees, we support social projects.
The following two foundations will be supported with our Family Fun Run 2021:
Tischlein deck dich is a non-profit organisation that was launched 20 years ago. The association rescues quality food products and goods from elimination and distributes them in a controlled manner to those in poverty in Switzerland. These products come from overproduction, whose packaging is slightly damaged or due to short shelf-life would otherwise be destroyed. A disadvantage turns into an advantage: quality, fresh food ends up as direct aid to people living in financial straits.
The aim of our association is to promote the health of children of preschool age with simple means and in spatial conditions. With this objective in mind, the "Ä Halle wo's fägt" offer was developed. Last season, the offer was carried out in 79 halls. 8 cantons are represented: Aargau, Basel Land, Bern, Lucerne, Obwalden, Schwyz, Solothurn and Zurich. We were able to count around 17,700 children taking part in the winter of 2019/20!
