The Human Safety Net donation gate
This year you can run as a participant in the GENERALI BERLIN HALF MARATHON and do good at the same time. If you walk through the donation gate on the way to your destination at kilometre 19.5 on Mohrenstrasse, you will automatically donate 2 euros for three selected social projects of "The Human Safety Net" – a global movement to help disadvantaged people supported by our title partner Generali.
You will be identified by your Champion Chip, so only those who deliberately run through the gate will initiate a donation. After the race, all runners who passed through the donation gate will be reminded by our timing partner mika timing about their intention to donate. After a 14-day period during which you can cancel the donation if you chose, the amount will be deducted by direct debit from the same account as used to register fees, so only those who chose to donate will do so.
Become part of the movement with your contribution and give disadvantaged people a chance for a better life.
