THE 4K 4CHARITY FUN RUN SERIES
The 4km (2.49-mile) run and walk is held annually in Las Vegas, Amsterdam and Portland. All proceeds benefit nonprofit organizations that support increased diversity and inclusion initiatives. The 4K 4Charity Fun Run is unique in that 100% of individual registration fees are donated directly to our nonprofit partners. Since the inaugural 4K 4Charity Fun Run event took place at IBC in 2014, the series has raised more than $450,000 USD in gross proceeds for nonprofit organizations and attracted nearly 4,000 participants.
Stichting NewTechKids is committed to bringing CS and technological literacy education to primary school students in disadvantaged communities whom we refer to as ‘Rising Technologists’. Since 2016, Stichting NewTechKids has established a network of 21st Century Skills Clubs in Amsterdam Southeast which focus on helping girls, children from immigrant and minority groups, and children from low-income families prepare for the future in which technology is integrated into all fields.
Heifer International is a global non-profit dedicated to ending hunger and poverty and caring for the earth. In 30 countries Heifer helps hungry families feed themselves through sustainable gifts of livestock, resources and training. Communities are transformed with the empowerment of women, access to markets and environmental restoration.
