QNET Russia fortified its commitment to balanced well-being by organising a special QNET Absolute Living Marathon for Independent Representatives at the Mikhailovskaya embankment. The theme of the marathon was ‘Create your own image of a healthy life’, and received the unwavering support of our partners, IRs, and the unprecedented support of the Department of Culture, Sports and Youth Policy of the Novosibirsk City Hall, the Department of Physical Culture and Sports of the City Hall, and the Directorate of the Siberian Running Festival. Such cooperation has brought a new development for QNET in Russia.
Over 500 Independent Representatives from Novosibirsk, Tomsk, Biysk, Kemerovo and Krasnoyarsk took part in the marathon and showed their support for the QNET concept of Absolute Living. The registration costs and the money raised from the Absolute Living Marathon was given to Integration, a local non-profit that has the goal of providing social protection to people with disability, never missing an opportunity to practice the values of RYTHM.
The opening ceremony of the QNET Absolute Living Marathon was attended by the Head of the Department of Culture, Sports and Youth Policy of Novosibirsk Anna Tereshkova, the Head of the Central District of Novosibirsk Sergey Kanunnikov, the Acting Head of the Department of Physical Culture and Sports of the Novosibirsk's City Hall Alexander Zakharov, the Head of the Department of Physical Culture and Sports of the Novosibirsk Region Sergey Ahapov, and Olympic champions Irina Minh and Andrey Perlov. Also present was the Chairperson of Integration Irina Fedorova. QNET Russia was represented by Vladimir Vagin, our official agent in Russia, and QNET Business Development Manager Batyr Komurzoev who helped present souvenirs featuring QNET products to the guests.
The event was covered by local radio stations and online news portals. Reporters from the Russian channel, Russia 24, interviewed QNET representatives and participants from the scene, illuminating the incredible emotional mood of the representatives and employees.
