In 36 hours. In teams of two. Without money. As far as possible. For a good cause.
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, Cologne. 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 2021 BreakOut supports Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli e.V.(VcA). The non-profit organisation is committed to ensuring that all people worldwide have access to clean drinking water. To achieve this goal, they promote water projects and actions at home and abroad. They are firmly convinced that even serious topics in the world can be treated with joy.
The money from BreakOut will support the construction of water supply systems in schools in the Eastern Cape Province.
In 2019 BreakOut supported the Zeltschule e.V. as a partner organization. The NGO builds and manages tent schools for Syrian refugees in Lebanon and provides the families in the camps with food and medicine. The cool part: 100% of your donations are going to the charity organization Zeltschule e.V.
