NCT run 2020 becomes a virtual run

NCT-run 2020 from 26 - 28 June

Challenge accepted? Definitely!

Normally, thousands of people get out to be part of the NCT run and set their individual sign against cancer. But how do you bring this community together without a running event? We are starting a collective action on June 26th under the idea NCT-RUNning against cancer: alone. Together!

The virtual NCT run can be run anywhere: in the park or forest, on the treadmill or the tartan track. The virtual NCT run is contested alone or in a small group consisting of the permitted number of people in accordance to the current contact restrictions. Everyone sets their distance themselves. Inspired by our round course, it is not about top athletic performance, but about getting involved for others and the support of cancer research at NCT Heidelberg.

Symbolic finish for all runners

Starting shot: June 26th - Goal: 40.000 kilometres
On our social-media channels we will give the go-ahead for the virtual NCT-run live on June 26th 2020 at 6pm. You can run up to and including Sunday, June 28th. Together we want to reach the goal of 40,000 kilometers. Our partner SAP and its employees support every kilometer run with 0,50 euro. The proceeds will support innovative cancer research projects at NCT Heidelberg.

Dr. Natalie Lotzmann, Chief Medical Officer at SAP, Head of Global Health & Well-Being motivates colleagues and says about the idea of the virtual NCT run: "Every step counts! Let us together as SAP send out a strong signal again - for our own health and our commitment against cancer".

"Health, solidarity and being there for each other are all the more important in times like these, the keystone of our living together. For this reason, I am very pleased that we are able to support the NCT Run again this year," adds Dr. Benjamin Blau, Head of SAP Transformation Office. The enthusiastic runner explains his very personal work-life-run balance here.
