voestalpine cares run

Together as a voestalpine team

We’re on the move together, supporting a good cause with the voestalpine cares run. Started on April 15, 2023, our employees won’t just be doing something for their health, they’ll also be helping people in need. We’re helping to change the world, by running, walking, hiking, wheelchair driving, or handcycling, all around the world, and collecting digital “cares” along the way. It’s not about achieving record times or going the longest distance. It’s about everyone coming together to help make a difference.

Step by step, voestalpine donations will be released for charitable purposes. That means we are all contributing to creating a sustainable and better world—not just through our products, but also by supporting international aid projects.

The voestalpine sites are committed to social responsibility. The voestalpine cares run is a way for us to bundle our social engagement worldwide. Employees are pooling their athletic prowess to help make the world a better place.

What we have achieved so far

Donation status

With each sporting activity, the cares circles gradually fill up. Each circle represents a donation stage and a specific donation amount. The money is distributed to selected charitable projects.

Donations are made whenever voestalpine employees fill a cares circle by taking part in sporting activities (running, walking, hiking, wheelchair driving, and handcycling).

The concept

Start: April 15, 2023

The voestalpine cares run started on April 15, 2023 and runs through to June 30, 2023 at the latest.

Our goal

To get as many employees as possible to take part, to release the maximum donation.

International aid projects

The donations go to selected charitable projects.

How our employees can take part

All voestalpine employees can participate. The MOVEEFFECT app is used to digitally record sporting activities (running, walking, hiking, wheelchair driving, and handcycling) and convert them into “CaRES” (CaresRewards).

Download the app, register, and do good!

To collect points for the cares run, you need to enter a REGISTRATION CODE in the app. voestalpine employees can find the code at the following locations:

  • Posters displayed at voestalpine sites
  • On the intranet
  • In the myAPP employee app
  • In the latest employee magazine (01/2023).

The MOVEEFFECT app is compatible with popular sports fitness devices (e.g. Garmin, Suunto, Google Fit, Apple Health, Polar). You can easily synchronize your device to the MOVEEFFECT app or manually enter an activity.
