Myanmar, 16 January 2015 – As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility commitment, Nexia TS is delighted to participate in the Yoma Yangon International Marathon (YYIM) 2015 as a Corporate Donor in support of the adopted charities. Held on 11 January 2015 at the Thuwunna National Indoor Stadium (Yangon, Myanmar), the third installment of YYIM 2015 was a resounding success, attracting a large number of local and international runners as it grows into one of Myanmar’s most prominent sporting events.
Reflecting YYIM 2015’s charity theme of “Run for Children”, 3 charity organisations were selected to be the receiving beneficiaries: YCDC Non Profit Child Day Care Center for Low Income Citizens (6 centres for 100+ children), Su Taung Pyae Youth Development Center (around 1,700 students with a large number of orphans) and Aung Za Bu Youth Development Center (1,000+ students). It also appointed Charity Ambassadors to drive fundraising efforts for the beneficiaries.
“We’re thankful to be in a position to lend a helping hand to those in need. At Nexia TS, we’ve always believed in giving back to the society, and Myanmar has a special place in our hearts. At the same time, we are glad that we are able to do our part to support the less privileged through our corporate donation.”
