CELEBRATING ST. PATRICK'S DAY IN COPENHAGEN
Money raised during The Greening and 3 Legged Charity Race 2014 will be donated to Danske Hospitalsklovne, CCAF- a preschool program in Cambodia, and St. Francis Hospice in Dublin, Ireland.
The Little Mermaid (Den Lille Havfrue) will be wearing the Green again for St. Patrick’s Day 2014. This new tradition started in 2013 with the aim of celebrating Ireland's national holiday and promoting the Irish community's fundraiser, The Paddy's Day 3 Legged Charity Race. Come see the Little Mermaid as she's never been seen before!
