Tokyo Electron Taiwan Participates in Taipei Marathon and Gives to Charity through Running Events / 東京威力科創參與台北馬拉松為公益而跑

Tokyo Electron (TEL) in Hsinchu, Taiwan, a group company of the leading semiconductor production equipment manufacturer TEL, sponsored the Run for Charity marathon event again this year to celebrate the 21st year of the company’s founding in Taiwan, as well as to fulfill its commitment to the CSR (corporate social responsibility) principles. In the same spirit, the company also participated in the 2017 Taipei Marathon today for the first time. The company encouraged its employees to run for these events, and cooperated with associated charity programs, through which the company will make a donation to the National Nantou Special School for an amount proportionate to the total distance covered by the employee runners.
The Run for Charity event drew a large number of runners including over 70 employees of TEL or their families. Meanwhile, the company also participated in the Taipei Marathon—the largest marathon event in Taiwan—to introduce a social media-based donation program, in which the company gives to charity an amount proportionate to the number of hashtagged selfies of citizens taken with the company’s robot cheering squad. (Some of the employees formed a cheering squad wearing Iron Man and robot costumes, giving encouragement to all runners and attracting a lot of attention.) As the runners covered 1,600 km in aggregate today, the company added a proportionate amount to the contributions raised, bringing the total donation to NT$550,000. The fund will be used to provide children with disabilities with an improved studying environment. The charitable spirit of these running events will continue to make people happier.
