In November 2016, 25 colleagues from DB Schenker Oman joined the annual walkathon of the local Cancer Association to raise awareness about cancer prevention. Our colleagues wanted to make a difference and participated, dressed with pink and dark blue T-shirts made for the occasion together with thousands of other locals in the gathering. Over 7,000 participants were present in total, representing schools, banks, corporate houses, hotels and social organisations. In addition, our colleagues made the effort to raise money (through sale of T-shirts, mugs and other souvenirs) which was donated to a local home for children being treated for cancer.
Although taking place during working hours our team still made it possible to be part of the event, and at the same time ensured that business operation at DB Schenker was not interrupted.
For the team it became clear that it is important to support social responsibility activities, and especially supporting cancer patients by increasing cancer awareness among Omani public.
