Fun Day with the Bear was a sports charity event that took place from Sept. 12 to Sept. 18, and saw participants do good deeds by counting their daily kilometers.

The community sporting event took place in Prague's Letná park.

The Expats.cz team got together on Sept. 13 for an afternoon of walking and running in support of the event. Speaking about her past experience with the event, Expats.cz sales Director Pavla Engel said: "I have always enjoyed taking my children to the event and teaching them about charity. They loved picking their own charity to support."

The run offered family-friendly fun and an occasion to work together as a team.
