You can also "get a move on” to fight global hunger! How it works: Run for Life participants seek out donors who sponsor their sports performance.
A pledged amount is contributed for each completed section and subsequently donated. The Run for Life campaign, which has been implemented in cooperation with the German Track and Field Association since 1996, features a large number of sports-related activities, such as completed laps at the school's sports day or goals at the local derby...
... and the donations that are collected are assigned to Welthungerhilfe projects. And it's fun!
