School donation run 2019 – Review

posted in: Allgemein | 0

On July 19, 2019, our annual donation run again took place in the Gymnasium Höhenkirchen-Siegertsbrunn. For six years now, the fundraiser has been organized by AK Philippines students and every year it is again a great success. The weather was once again on our side. It was pleasantly warm. This year there were a bit less students than last year, but that was obviously no reason to collect less donations. Approximately 800 students took part in this year’s run and collected around 20,000 euros in donations. One of the students set a new running record of 15 laps and one student alone earned 22 sponsors. The donations will go to the community development project this year in a slum with about 100,000 inhabitants in Agdao, Davao. The association will let the donations flow into microcredits and education projects. Dandelion can help more than 200 people a better life through microcredit every year, and the donation run is one of the biggest sources of income. A big thank you to the numerous participants, committed helpers and of course to the generous donors. Until next year!
