This year, DIS rallied a team of students and staff together to join the ECCO Walkathon held in early September. The Walkathon raised money for the Danish Heart Foundation and SOS Children’s Villages; for every participant, ECCO donated 7.50 Danish kroner for every kilometer walked. The Walkathon is an international event held in locations across the world, including cities in the U.S.
DIS staff member Jenny Han shared her experience of the day, saying,
“It was fun to wind through the different neighborhoods, join the locals at the food market for lunch, and walk through Christiansborg. The day had a great community feeling to it – it was a good motivation to complete the walk – we could only donate the full amount upon finishing!”
The group enjoyed the day exploring Copenhagen by foot and bonding while contributing to a great cause.Back to all news
