Mercedes-Benz donates W5 bil. through sports campaigns
"Give 'N Race," is another sports campaign program that has gained popularity among participants as it promotes people's health while they help those in need. Mercedes-Benz is the first imported car brand to start such a charity event in 2017, intending to help vulnerable children and teenagers. During the pandemic, the carmaker held a virtual race to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The donations, including sports campaign participation fees, are used for education and medical expenses for youngsters through the Kids & Future Foundation. Last year's donation from Give 'N Race was spent on medical expenses to treat children who suffered severe burns, heart problems and rare diseases. In addition, Mercedes-Benz started the "Give 'N Dream" scholarship project in 2020 to support promising young athletes in Korea.
Give 'N Dream donates a maximum of 3 million won per person per year and awards scholarships to a total of 50 recipients in various sports such as soccer, baseball, taekwondo and badminton.
