Wandering while also offering charity

THE DONORS’ hiking event Karpatská vandrovka is unique in Slovakia. The 50 kilometre hike along the main ridge of the Volovské vrchy mountains is focused on collecting money.

The 6th year of the event will take place on September 19. It strives to collect finances for the development of eastern Slovakia. Hikers who do not feel like making the 50-kilometre trip can opt for the 25 kilometre half route. The hike starts for both groups in Kúpele Štós spa at 5:00 and ends in the Čičky complex in Košice.

Each participant donates €100 to the Fund of Karpatská vandrovka, thus showing not only physical fitness, but also the ambition to support efforts to improve the quality of life in eastern Slovakia, organisers opine. The money collected will be used in 2016 – split and divided among good inventions and ideas of people in the region.

More information, including the use of money from previous years can be found at www.karpatskavandrovka.sk/fond and registration conditions can be found at the event’s website.
