ECCO WALKATHON 2012 - COME TO BELIEVE
This is the eighth edition of this extraordinary event in Poland. The idea of action is simple and unchanged for years. Just go the route of six or ten kilometers, and the organizer of the action, ECCO, for every km traveled by the participant, will pay 4 gold on account of his chosen charity. This year, ECCO Walkathon will support TVN Foundation "you are not alone" - in aid of sick children
for cerebral palsy, Foundation Radio ZET, which together will purchase a modern ultrasound scanner for detecting heart defects in children before their birth (for the Department of Diagnostic and Prevention of ICZMP in Łódź) and Warsaw ZOO build a pasture for a family of hippos.
