“Sport is the right choice for everyone. Because sport directly contributes to health of both a person and the society. To facilitate the people to be healthy, Farmak makes the treatment with modern and effective medicinal products possible. Every year, we manufacture over 20 new modern medicinal products, and roughly 150 medicinal products are under development. The equipment of Farmak meets the best world practices and tendencies. We understand that sport and a healthy lifestyle are the best ways to prevent diseases. Therefore, we traditionally hold the race “Farmak: Run for Your Health!” on the occasion of the Shostka Town Day in the beginning of September. You do not need to be a sportsman to wake up every morning and cover your distance. Any new step is a victory, which means that your decision leads to such victory. Farmak as a market leader knows how important victory is for everyone. We want to show within this project that a healthy lifestyle is a conscious choice of everyone and it is accessible. Running is not just a word or a type of sport. It is a special world-view. It is a feeling of your power, energy, revival, accomplishments, understanding that everything is possible”, said Olena Zubarieva, Head of Corporate Communication and Sustainable Development Department at JSC “Farmak”.
