Pragmatic Play sponsors ultramarathon runner for charity event

Pragmatic Play has teamed up with Maltese athlete, Steve Sammut Nurminen (MovewithSteve) as he looks to complete a 365km run across Sicily in aid of the charity Dr Klown.

Nurminen aims to raise €10,000 for the charity which provides a unique service to hospitalised children in Malta and Gozo. Dr Klown supplies clown doctors, who are trained to entertain, and make children smile and laugh while in hospital.

The running challenge is sponsored by Pragmatic Play, who will be supporting Nurminen and his team, as he prepares for the run from Syracuse to Trapani at the height of summer in just two and a half days.

Julian Jarvis, CEO at Pragmatic Play, said: “Steve is well known in the Maltese community for his herculean feats of endurance running and we’re very proud to be able to support him in his latest astounding effort– running a 365km ultramarathon!

“The work that Dr Klown does in Malta is extremely important, and we’re humbled we can support Steve in his quest to raise as much money for them as possible.”

Steve Sammut Nurminen added: “It is a hugely exciting challenge and one that will push me to the limit as I embark on my most ambitious run to date, looking to raise significant funds for Dr Klown to assist the incredible work they do.

“Pragmatic Play’s CSR programme contributes to charities and causes all over Malta and beyond, and I’m very pleased to be working with them to raise money for a fantastic charity.”
