Cultivating Athletic Talents and Promoting Health with FENC Exercise Platform
The marathon club at Hsinpu Chemical Fiber Plant was founded in 2012. Over the years, the club has been dedicating efforts to promoting exercise among the general public, encouraging perseverance and strong will. The club held middle to long-distance running and cross country running events, helping employees enhance running techniques and promoting health. In recent years, the club has been setting its sight on promoting exercise for all. An exercise platform was established with the aim to foster the exercise culture. The plant invites local communities and running clubs to train together with indoor and outdoor trainings held at 5:30 on Saturday mornings for 11 years in a row. Indoor trainings refer to over 10 exercise sharing sessions that had been held over the years while outdoor trainings refer to the group training.
Members of the marathon club have developed the habit to exercise over the years. They also take part in the preparation of running events in Hsinchu City and County and champion the exercise culture at the local communities. The local running clubs also provide support at events held by Hsinpu Chemical Fiber Plant. This collaborative model contributes to the common good, demonstrating the spirit of community care and inclusive development at FENC.
FENC has long been an advocate for employee and community health. Through the platform and the marathon club, many employees have gone on to become exceptional long-distance runners and frequent winners at national events. The achievements boosted their self-confidence and sense of accomplishment. In 2021, Hsinpu Chemical Fiber Plant was awarded 2020 Sports Enterprise Certification by Sports Administration of the Ministry of Education.
