Race for Protection
The world can be a dangerous place – and every child deserves to be protected. Race for Protection so that we can ensure children stay safe from harms like abuse, neglect, exploitation and violence.
Race for Education
Every child deserves the chance to learn. Race for Education so that we can ensure girls and boys develop the critical skills they need for success in school – and life.
Who can participate in a virtual race?
Anyone and everyone! Run inside or outside, by yourself or in a group - the possibilities are endless and the choice is yours!
