Continuing Tradition: UNU-CS at the Caritas Charity Run 2018
“Healthy citizens are the greatest asset any country can have.” – Winston Churchill
Four members of the United Nations University Institute on Computing and Society (UNU-CS) continued the tradition to participate in the Charity Run organized by Caritas Macau and University of Macau (UM). This year the run was held on Sunday, 7 October 2018 where more than 2,000 people attended the event.
This annual event is organized to encourage more people to participate in the sport of running and to promote the integration of persons with disabilities in society. All the donations raised from this event will go directly to Caritas Macau for philanthropic causes and new social service development.
Apart from this activity, UNU-CS partners with Caritas Macau on a research project that explores the use of technology to support Caritas centers. The participation in this event strengthens the institute’s local engagement in Macau region.
