Foxconn as a General Partner for the Next Three Years
Preparations can take place this year thanks to a contract with a strong partner, Foxconn. "We want to further strengthen our long-term cooperation, which has lasted since 2016, and thus support this unique event in our city. The organizers will gain the certainty in the form of a stable general partner, Foxconn Czech Republic," said Nicky Monaghan, Vice President of the company, adding: "At this time, it is more than ever necessary to think about a healthy and active lifestyle. As a good neighbour and the largest employer in the region, we simply cannot miss this event!" The sponsorship agreement was signed for the years 2021, 2022, 2023 and Foxconn will be in the position of general partner of the event. Visitors will also be able to visit the Foxconn zone, which will be not only a competition zone, but also a relaxation zone. At the same time, the second year of the successful charity race called Foxconn Run will take place. Foxconn employees have a number of benefits, such as a free playing card or the opportunity to use the corporate zone. However, they can look forward to much more.
