Today the Agbar Foundation organised the 2nd charity stair climb at the Agbar Tower in aid of Banc dels Aliments. Taking part in the initiative was mountaineer Òscar Cadiach, who in August 1985 became the first Catalan to reach the summit of Mount Everest. The athlete took part in the morning session, from 10 to 11 am.
This charity challenge in aid of the Banc dels Aliments’ food drive to collect basic goods over the summer is one of the events to help 'bid farewell' to the Agbar Tower, one of Barcelona's most emblematic buildings. Employees took part, climbing all the stairs they could, with only one requirement: to bring foodstuffs to contribute to this social organisation, especially cans of tuna, sardines or mackerel. For every floor each professional reached, the Agbar Foundation would donate a half a kilo more to Banc dels Aliments.
All the foodstuffs collected at the event will go to the Banc dels Aliments’ ‘Hunger doesn’t go on holiday’ campaign, an initiative to collect basic goods to distribute among the social organisation’s more than 730 charitable associations and guarantee food to their more than 250,000 beneficiaries during the summer months.
