ECCO takes social responsibility – and leaves a footprint!

About ECCO Walkathon

ECCO® Walk for Life is a charity programme developed by ECCO. Our ECCO Walkathon events are an important part of Walk for Life. They are sponsored walks that take place in several cities in Denmark, Poland and other countries on an annual basis. For each kilometer walked by each participant, ECCO donates 1 euro to a partnering charity organization.

In 2010, ECCO donated nearly 400,000 euros to SOS Children’s Villages, the WWF and various local health projects in Denmark, Poland and Germany. To date, ECCO Walkathon participants have raised 3.3 million euros with their feet – money which ECCO has donated to a variety of good causes in Europe, Africa and Asia.
