BreakOut is a charity travel competition for the adventurous. Once a year, the participants start in pairs from Munich, Berlin and also, since last year, Barcelona. You have 36 hours to travel as far away as possible without spending money on transportation. The teams travel for a good cause all over Europe on a donkey, bike, by foot, in a car, by train or submarine. The concept follows the idea of a donation marathon: Each team collects donations from their team sponsors for each kilometer traveled. The organization behind BreakOut is a student group of 30 young people volunteering for the planning, organization and implementation of the BreakOut. Here you can find out how to BreakOut
In 2018 BreakOut supports the EinDollarBrille e.V. as a partner organization. EinDollarBrille-opticians get educated locally and are therefore able to provide eyesight tests and the manufacturing of glasses at minimal cost. The cool part: 100% of your donations are going to the charity organization EinDollarBrille e.V. and help people with limited sight all over the world.
"Reisen verbindet! Und Reisen für einen guten Zweck verbindet auf besondere Weise. Ich wünsche allen Teams eine spannende Reise, neue Eindrücke, möglichst viele gesammelte Meilen und einen gelungenen Break Out 2017! "
Josef Schmid - 2. Bürgermeister der Stadt München
