Each Integreon center relies on the neighborhood it calls home, and is committed to truly partnering with and improving the communities in which it operates. A number of our locations are joining forces to take on the challenge of participating in a global relay of sponsored sporting events – ‘Integreon International Charity Challenge’ – to unite our Associates as ‘One Integreon’ as we walk, run and fundraise for selected charitable organizations.
Below is the race line-up:
♦ May 8, Johannesburg – Kicking off the series of events, Associates in our Johannesburg office are planning to take part in Wings for Life World Run, a race of epic proportions focused on getting runners worldwide, on the same day, at the same time in every corner of the globe out there running for those who can’t due to spinal cord injury.

♦ June 4, Fargo – Over in the US we have a number of events planned, starting on June 4 with our flagship race, the Integreon Fargo International Charity Challenge. Taking place at the Iwen and Lions Conservancy Parks, and hosted entirely by Integreon’s Fargo center, the trail race which will include a 5 km, 10 km, 3 hr or 6 hr run/walk, is sponsored by a number of commercial organisations in the Fargo-Moorhead area. Integreon Associates will join members of the general public to raise money for charities Marv Bossart Foundation for Parkinson’s Support,Rape and Abuse Crisis Center, YWCA Cass Clay who work to eliminate racism and empower women and CHARISM who provides support and outreach programs for local at-risk children and families.
