On Saturday, 18 October, four teams of DG MARKT will participate in the EKIDEN Relay Marathon in Brussels, the biggest team marathon event in the world. We are four out of 91 teams running from the EU institutions.

It will be FUN!


But that is not all. We run because we want to raise money for GIVE EUR-HOPE.


EUR-HOPE calls on the generosity of EU personnel to help finance microprojects. This year the goal is to refurbish five kitchens in social housing in Brussels and the insulation of two Roma social houses in Bulgaria.


And YOU can be part of it too! Without having to run!


You can sponsor our kilometres. Between 1km and 84 kms you have the full choice. But that is not to say between 1k and 84k - every amount is welcome and appreciated!


Yet we hope, and are confident, that our great DG will show its professionalism and generosity until the very end – thank you very much in advance!


Sponsoring us is EASY! You have until 31 October 2014 to click on the button above to donate any amount via a credit card, debit card or PayPal. Simply click the 'buy as a guest' link in the PayPal checkout. You do not need to have a PayPal account to contribute.

Alternatively you can send an email with the subject "EKIDEN" to stating the amount you would like to donate and you will get informed about the place and time of the physical collection of donations.


Your sponsoring will give us wings (hopefully)!
