Pragmatic Play partners with ultramarathon runner for Sicily charity event

| By Zak Thomas-Akoo
Pragmatic Play, a leading content provider to the igaming industry, has teamed up with Maltese athlete Steve Sammut Nurminen (MovewithSteve) as he looks to complete an incredible challenge, running 365km across Sicily in aid of the charity Dr Klown. 

Steve aims to raise €10,000 for the non-governmental organisation (NGO), which provides a unique service to hospitalised children in Malta and Gozo. Dr Klown supplies clown doctors, that are artistically and psychologically trained to entertain children in hospitals, where the volunteers amuse kids and produce smiles and laughter to those in need. 

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

Pragmatic Play has partnered with Steve in his journey as the shared ethos and dedication is clear between the two, with both taking major leaps in their respective fields through drive, dedication and hard work, which are hallmarks of both the supplier’s business approach and Steve’s ultramarathon events. 

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.”
