The employees of the BNP Paribas Group in Luxembourg run for a good cause
During a ceremony organised on 3 October 2018, Marc Lenert, a member of the Executive Committee of BGL BNP Paribas and Chairman of the Cercle Amical et Sportif (C.A.S.) of BNP Paribas in Luxembourg, and Christine Donati, Chairwoman of the C.A.S. Running Section, presented a cheque for EUR 3,335 to Jean-Marie Demeure, vice chairman of the Life Project 4 Youth (LP4Y) Luxembourg.
The cheque was presented after almost 70 employees of the BNP Paribas Group in Luxembourg participated in the Luxembourg Night Marathon on 12 May 2018. To support them in their efforts, the management of the BNP Paribas Group in Luxembourg had committed to make a donation proportional to the number of runners crossing the finish line. For the 13th year running, the involvement of the Group’s employees in Luxembourg has helped support a charitable organisation.
This year, the funds raised will be used to support the charity Life Project 4 Youth Luxembourg in its daily activities to promote Youth inclusion through entrepreneurship in the Philippines, Vietnam, India and Indonesia. At the cheque handover ceremony, Jean-Marie Demeure expressed his gratitude for the shared commitment to the work of LP4Y Luxembourg.
Marc Lenert took the opportunity to thank the employees of BNP Paribas Group in Luxembourg who took part in the 2018 edition of the ING Night Marathon: “I would like to congratulate all employees who, by taking part in the marathon, have done their bit for a good cause and helped us raise this money for Life Project 4 Youth Luxembourg. We aim to be socially responsible and are committed to helping the community. By combining sport and social engagement, this initiative is a true reflection of our Group’s values.”
