Crossing Europe: Grosse-Hornke wins charity challenge

Many of our colleagues are sports enthusiasts. We love running, climbing, diving, horse-riding and other activities. In 2019, we boosted our training routines with a big challenge: Our aim was to run a distance which equals crossing the European continent. And we made it! For every kilometer, Grosse-Hornke is donating to charity – a total of 1,500 euros.

Last summer, we set ourselves an ambitious goal: By the end of the year we wanted to run a total of around 6,500 kilometers; credits could also be earned by comparable training units. Theoretically, one person could make it from the Urals to the Portuguese coast with such a performance. We are very proud that we even surpassed this ambitious goal: At the end of December we had more than 7,100 kilometers on our training record. We spent hundreds of hours jogging, swimming, climbing rocks, horseback riding, cycling, diving in the sea, hiking in the mountains and more.

In the end, Grosse-Hornke has rounded up the donations per kilometer, to a total of 1,500 euros. This sum will be divided equally between three social organizations selected by our team:

  • the Christoffel Blindenmission, who provide eye surgery for children in developing countries,
  • the Regenbogenland children’s hospice in Düsseldorf,
  • and Aktion Lichtblicke, supporting families in need.
