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

By educationally trained sports instructors, 482.000 pupils have been exposed to topics such as equality and health, which has improved the educational situation in a sustainable way. Already 40 school building projects have expanded the Tanzanian school infrastructure.
