Potássio do Brasil, a subsidiary of Brazil Potash, recently facilitated the participation of 18 athletes from the Autazes Runners team in the 5th edition of the Manaus International Marathon. The event, held in Manaus, Amazonas, featured races of varying distances, starting as early as 4 am.

The company’s involvement aimed to address the logistical challenges faced by the runners and to promote health and community engagement. This move aligns with Potássio do Brasil’s broader commitment to fostering sportsmanship and well-being in the region.

Adriano Espeschit, President of Potássio do Brasil, expressed his satisfaction in supporting the local athletes. “We, at Potássio do Brasil, believe that sport is a powerful tool to promote health and community cohesion. By supporting these athletes from the Autazes Runners team, we want to boost sport in the municipality of Autazes and inspire the people of Autazes to adopt an active and healthy lifestyle,” he said.

Transforming Autazes

This support has reportedly transformed the city’s sports culture. Caio Cruz, the coordinator of the Autazes Runners team, noted the increasing popularity of running in Autazes, attributing it to the efforts of Brazil Potash and their own developmental work. “Before, it was unusual to see people running. Today, if you pass by Avenida Vinte de Novembro, which is the main road in our city, at night, you will see a crowd of people running, all thanks to the work we are developing and now with the support from Potássio that they have provided to Autazes Runners. We just have to thank Potássio do Brasil for the support and encouragement they have given to our city and our team,” Cruz stated.

New Records, New Starts

Edivane Bessa, a member of the Autazes Runners team, acknowledged the significance of Brazil Potash’s repeated support, especially for amateur athletes like themselves. “This is not the first time that Potássio has supported us, which is very gratifying, as we are amateur athletes. Potássio has offered assistance to our group of athletes who are unable to come here from Autazes [Manaus]. So for us, it’s a privilege because we’re receiving this support that we didn’t have previously. Now, we will return even happier for having completed the routes and achieved our personal records from last year,” Bessa mentioned.

The company’s support for local sports is contributing to Autazes’ growing reputation as a supportive environment for sporting and physical activities, fostering a positive impact on the city’s health and lifestyle culture, all while continuing to develop the important Autazes Potash Project.
