From just one city in the Netherlands in 2004 to numerous cities all over the world. See if your hometown is already listed!
In 2017 8 Hours’ Overtime for a Good Cause will be organized on Friday 31 March. As every year we expect local enthusiasts all over the world to host the event in their cities.
We will compile a list of all local organisers here. If you’d like to organize (or are already organizing) 8 Hours’ Overtime for a Good Cause in your city, do contact us!
