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 two fantastic events in the years 2017 and 2018, 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 2019:
For over 25 years, the Swiss Foundation has brought joy and variety into the lives of children living with a disease or disability. Since then, the non-profit organization has fulfilled more than 2,800 heartfelt wishes of affected children.
Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots is a global, ecological and humanitarian youth program run by the Jane Goodall Institute.
