The Anton Paar 5K WALK/RUN at Pittcon is a charity event hosted by Anton Paar in New Orleans during the Pittcon Conference and Expo.

Whether you choose to run or walk the 5K course in New Orleans, these are all steps towards the greater good: All proceeds of the Anton Paar 5K WALK/RUN at Pittcon will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of St. Jude's founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.

The Santner Foundation

Since the end of 2003, Anton Paar has been owned by the charitable Santner Foundation. Founded the same year, the foundation's mission is to benefit scientific research projects in the field of natural and technical sciences as well as the prevention and treatment of drug and alcohol abuse.

Since the transfer of ownership, profits from Anton Paar operations have been used to help countless people struggling with addiction, and have funded numerous scientific research projects.
