According to Google Maps there is 10,560 kilometer between Solbjerg Plads and Kampala. Estimated time is 148 hours including the ferry from Alicante to Algir - by car. Unfortunately we haven't been able to estimate the time biking.

Between the 23rd and 27th of September CBS Building Tomorrow will give all CBS students and employees the opportunity to bike for a good cause.

Honor and rewards included
Bike to Uganda, which is Building Tomorrow’s flagship event, aims to engage up to 500 students, to collectively bike the distance between Copenhagen and Kampala, the capital of Uganda.

Ten stationary bikes will be placed outside the Student Hub at Solbjerg Plads and the participant will donate 20 DKK for 30 minutes biking. If they donate another 20 DKK they are welcome to participate in the final party with free entrance, free bar and catering at Simons.

Additionally, there will be several categories, in which Building Tomorrow will reward the best team with marvelous prizes, including gift cards, designer items, beers and last, but not least the associated honor.

Give others a chance to get educated
Building Tomorrow is a non-profit organization, with its origin in America and brought to CBS by two International Business students six month ago. In the US the concept has already successfully built ten Ugandan schools and four more are under construction. The CBS branch is the first international one and the 25th university to participate in the Building Tomorrow network.

Building Tomorrow’s vision is to ensure a world where every child with a desire to learn has a safe, local and permanent place to do so. The goal is to through fund raising, collect 360 000 DKK, which will enable a school for 325 children with a sports field and facilities.

The project also engages the Ugandan government, which donates the land areal and the local population who contribute to the physical construction of the school. Through Bike to Uganda, Building Tomorrow will empower fellow CBS students to invest their resources, time and talents in providing students in East Africa with access to an education.
