On June 1, Children’s Day in Russia, the Running Hearts charity marathon was held in Moscow next to Red Square in support of the Naked Heart Foundation trustees under the slogan #runningwithpurpose. Gazprom-Media’s employees have supported the foundation’s charity projects for the second year in a row.
This year the Holding was represented by its entertainment TV channels, Gazprom-Media KIT sub-holdings, Gazprom-Media Radio, Gazprom-Media Match, NTV channel, Comedy Club Production companies, NTV-PLUS and Gazprom-Media sale house.
Support for charity initiatives is one of Gazprom-Media's priorities as part of its corporate social responsibility program. Through their participation in the marathon, Gazprom-Media employees supported a project to provide early assistance to young children with developmental disabilities and their family members, which the Naked Heart Fund has been carrying out since 2013 as part of its “Every Child Deserves a Family” initiative. The marathon was held in 60 cities simultaneously - from Kaliningrad to Vladivostok - with more than 150,000 people taking part.
