In mid-October, Wendel employees ran in the Paris 20 km race and the London half marathon. In connection with these events, a fundraising effort was organized for the benefit of Helen Keller International. Founded in 1915 by Helen Keller, this nonprofit organization combats blindness and malnutrition throughout the world. A total of €1,700 was collected for the organization.
As an extension of this event, Wendel is pursuing its commitment to Helen Keller International by supporting the development of the PlanVue program. This project aims to raise awareness and test primary and middle school children for vision problems. In 2019, the program will involve 600 schoolchildren in the Paris suburb of Nanterre.
