“Interdisciplinary research, therapy and preventative care for patients”: this is the goal of the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT) in Heidelberg. The NCT Run is just one of the fundraising events that contributes to this cause.
io contributes to the NCT Run every year, staying true to the motto “Doing good together”. Entry fees directly benefit cancer research at the NCT, and we cover these for all our employees who take part. Whether they do just a few laps, a 10k run, or a half marathon – every contribution counts in the fight against cancer.
Two outstanding institutions in research and patient care – the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) and Heidelberg University Hospital (UKHD) – join forces at the NCT Heidelberg to provide cancer patients with state-of-the-art therapy. Physicians and scientists from a wide range of disciplines work side by side here using the latest medical findings in their clinical applications. They all follow the basic philosophy of the NCT: together against cancer – with the focus always firmly on people.
io has been running a Christmas gift campaign in cooperation with the Luise Scheppler-Heim, a youth welfare home in Heidelberg, since 2016. Every year, our employees make a Christmas wish come true for each of the residents.
New opportunities for education, health, clean water, energy, and economic progress – io supports projects around the world with know-how, investments and time.
