Together, European business students get active for the society and themselves.


With the power of sports, we want to encourage you as a European Business student to get active for the good cause. Our fitness challenge supports two Leipzig-based social organizations, Bärenherz and Pandechaion, with your contributions and 1000€ fixed donations, if we complete our collective challenge successfully.

The Challenge

The common goal of the fitness challenge is to jointly run from the HHL campus in Leipzig to the one in Munich, then to the one in Cologne and back to Leipzig. In other words, we want to achieve a total 1,200 kilometers in 14 days. If this threshold is reached, we will donate. Additionally, the donations of the participants and supporters will equally be distributed among the supported organizations.

How to participate

We cannot meet the 1,200 kilometers without you! To participate and collect kilometers, you can go walking, running, cycling or roller blading. Please track your sporting activity with any fitness tracker. After your sports session, send a screenshot of your activity to and we will include the workout in your distance!

Please be aware, that we will check the plausibility of your trainings. However, as we strive for the common good, we ask you to be honest!

More reasons to join...

Not only will you be having a blast with your fellow virtual friends, also participants with the highest kilometer record will receive a reward from us! The best individual participants and the most creative team picture will receive cash prizes and products worth more than 1,000€.

The results of the Fitness Challenge will be announced on Saturday, June 5, 2021. In the meantime, you will get the opportunity to review your score on the Fitness Challenge web page!

Social Cause

Supported organizations


The Bärenherz Children's Hospice is a medical facility in Leipzig that accommodates families with seriously ill children - from the moment the illness is diagnosed – 365 days every year. To provide the children and their families the necessary offerings, Bärenherz requires external donations. This is why we decided to support the organization with our Fitness Challenge.
Supported Project
Our donation helps Bärenherz to install urgently needed air conditions in the children’s rooms and support their so-called siblings project


Pandechaion means “shelter” and, accordingly, this social organization strives to offer refugees and asylum seekers not only a rooftop, but also a place where they feel safe and good. The shared accommodation in Leipzig’s Waldstraße has been opened in 2015 and currently 170 people live there. The team of Pandechaion supports its residents in all regards. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most of the offerings had to be discontinued.
Supported Project
We want to support the organization with our donations in painting the common living room as well as buying board games, a table soccer and books for the residents.
