Cross country – on the 4th of November

1&1 and its partner in environmental activities (Viitor Plus) invited us to run at ChCrosul Paduriiildren’s Forest for a special cause (plant one tree for every new born).

Vlad was pleasantly surprised by the organization team, by the large number of participants, and the location event gave him the opportunity to explore the Tineretului Lake.

Last month 1&1 offered me the chance to attend this event. Since this was my first participation, I didn’t know what to expect. I was told the conference would be big, but I wasn’t able to imagine the dimensions of it, and the impact it would have.
