Looking back

In 2022, charity runs for Horyzon took place in Grabs, Eschlikon and Olten. In addition, the nationwide Horyzon 2h-Challenge took place from 17 to 20 June, in a decentralised and virtual way. On behalf of the beneficiaries, we thank you very much for your commitment.

17-20 June 2022: 3rd Horyzon 2h-Challenge
From June 17th to 20th, running enthusiasts were able to run and collect for the youth in the projects in Haiti, Colombia, South Sudan and Palestine. The 2h Challenge was decentralised and took place with the help of a tracking app.

10 September 2022: 34th Grabs 2h Run for Palestine
With great dedication, 95 runners ran a total of 1,716 km on 10 September. We thank all participants for their commitment!

10 September 2022: 32nd Hinterthurgau 2h-run for Uganda
Under the motto of doing sport for a good cause, 39 cyclists covered a total of 1,616 km and raised a total of 26,110 CHF for Horyzon and the Kirchliche Notherberge Thurgau.

17 September 2022: 35th Olten 2h Run for Haiti
Between 10 and 17, a total of 576 people ran in the Olten 2h Run for Horyzon, among others. Thus, a total of 43,661 CHF were raised for Haiti.

Running for a good cause. The 2h run turns the mileage into donations.

In the mid-1980s Horyzon brought the concept of the 2-hour run from the USA to Switzerland. The first run took place in Frauenfeld in October 1986 with 200 runners and total proceeds of CHF 62,000.

Since then, 145 sponsored runs have been organised at 23 different locations to volunteer for Horyzon's development projects. In the process, 28,000 participants covered 413,000 kilometres and generated proceeds of over 7 million Swiss francs.


Local organising committees are responsible for the organisation of the runs. Before the run, the runners look for as many sponsors as possible among relatives and acquaintances, clubs or companies who guarantee them a certain amount of money for each kilometre run. The distance covered by the runners is measured and multiplied by the promised amounts.

Part of the donation will go to the Horyzon project selected by the organising committee. Another part usually goes to a social project in the region.

Running donations are an important source of financing for our projects: They contribute more than 10 % to their financing.
