Seguros Bilbao reaffirms its commitment to the Getxo Charity Family Race

"The new centre joins the branch opened last year in the province. The insurer thus achieves a twofold objective: positioning itself in the Valencia region and being closer to its customers."

Seguros Bilbao became the main sponsor of the 7th edition of the Getxo Charity Family Race, a non-competitive race whose aim is to raise funds for a common cause. Thanks to this agreement, the insurance company participates in this initiative for the fourth year running, showing its firm commitment to society and events that promote sports and a healthy lifestyle, especially in the regions in which it operates.
 
On Sunday 6 October, close to 1,000 athletes competed in this event, which brought sport and charity together at the Getxo marina. The amount collected was donated to Retinosis Retina Begisare, an association set up to help people affected by pigmentary retinopathy in the Basque Country, which seeks the social integration of people with visual problems affecting the retina, such as poor vision.
 
Seguros Bilbao's Assistant General Manager for Sales, José Manuel Ereño, welcomed the good response to the 7th edition of the Getxo Family Race, pointing out that for the insurance company "it is an honour and a pleasure to sponsor this type of initiative that combines health with solidarity". "With this cooperation," Ereño continued, "Seguros Bilbao strengthens its commitment to supporting teams, sports events and causes that pursue charitable aims". 
 
Fun event

The fun aspect is one of the distinguishing features of the Getxo Family Race. Participants were able to enjoy various activities that livened up the event and to take part in a draw for a trip to PortAventura World for four people, two adults and two children, offered by Seguros Bilbao.
