TP Vision – global brand licensee for Philips Audio products – joined last Sunday’s Wings for Life World Run event not just as the Global Headphones Partner but also as an active participant.
Wings for Life is a not-for-profit foundation supporting research projects and clinical studies worldwide with the goal of finding a cure for spinal cord injury. The Wings for Life World Run event has been held every year since 2014 with hundreds of thousands of people globally running for those who can’t.
The 2022 event was the 9th so far and saw 161,982 participants from 192 nations running in 165 countries all around the world with an incredible 4.7 million euros raised.
Everyone gets to finish and this year the worldwide participants covered an average 11.9 kilometres by the time the Catcher Car – the moving finishing line – caught and passed them. All results are available to see at www.wingsforlifeworldrun.com.
As Global Headphones Partner, purchasers of a Philips Sport headphone model between February and May 2022 were encouraged to enter the race, and had their fees covered by TP Vision, with 100% of all entry fees going directly to spinal cord research.
TP Vision also actively participated in the run with its own team of over 395 runners including 335 employees and 60 participants from partner companies.
The 10th edition of the Wings for Life World Run will take place in May 7, 2023, and registration is already open.
Commenting on the event Kostas Vouzas CEO TP Vision (Philips TV & Sound) Europe and Americas (16.3km covered) said: ‘I would like to congratulate the whole of the Wings for Life World Run team on a super successful, impressive event in which we were delighted to take part. We are very happy that Philips Go Sports Headphones and our team were able to both support and join the event and play our part in helping to raise such a fantastic amount for a really great cause: finding a cure for spinal cord injury’.
