About the 4K 4Charity Fun Run at IBC 2016
The 4K 4Charity Fun Run at IBC 2016 commemorates advancements in video technology by the global media and entertainment industry and the technology vendors that support them. Open to all registered IBC attendees and individuals who would like to donate, this 4km (2.49-mile) run promotes wellness, networking and charitable giving in a fun, casual environment.

All proceeds from run registrations will be donated directly to a global charitable organization, Heifer International, and a local Amsterdam charity, Jeugdsportfonds.
Heifer International’s mission is to end hunger and poverty while caring for the Earth. For more than 70 years, Heifer International has provided livestock and environmentally sound agricultural training to improve the lives of those who struggle daily for reliable sources of food and income. Heifer is currently working in more than 30 countries, including the United States, to help families and communities become more self-reliant.
Jeugdsportfonds (Youth Sports Fund) offers sports opportunities to children 4 to 18 years of age whose families do not have the financial resources to pay for an athletics club membership. Jeugdsportfonds covers the cost of membership for these children and, in some cases, also pays for any associated sports equipment.
