Lena’s Run for Life

Lenas run for life charity

Lena`s Run for Life is an event to raise money for ovarian cancer research. Lena Wäppling, who herself suffered from ovarian cancer, founded the Lena Wäppling’s foundation in 2019 to support gynecological cancer research and to help fewer women get and die from ovarian cancer. The foundation is unique in that it is one of the few private foundations that support gynecological research. The work of the Foundation is carried out entirely on a non-profit basis.

Lena’s Run for Life is an event for the whole family. The idea of ​​the event is to walk or run as far as you can in one hour’s time and support ovarian cancer research. The goal is for us to travel around the world together and participants are encouraged to endure another kilometer for a good cause. Our sponsors donate money per kilometer, so every kilometer counts! You track your own distance during your hour’s run, using any watch, app or other tool you want by tagging #lenaslopp

As part of our corporate social responsibility commitment, every person at Thurne is encouraged to spend up to three days per year for charity work.
