The Extra Mile
Global Community. Local impact.
Every participant in the race will also be able to make an impact through our community program, The Extra Mile. Every mile run will contribute towards raising a USD$30,000 donation by the end of the event, which will be donated to our local charity partner in Dubai, UAE Food Bank, to fund their programmes focused on donating food packages to communities in need and reducing food wastage in the country.
The UAE Food Bank is a non-profit organization, working under the umbrella of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives. It’s main target is to end hunger by fulfilling goal #2 under the UN Sustainable Development Goals – Zero Hunger. Not only have UAE Food Bank succeeded in feeding the people in need in the region, but also globally, in some countries like Lebanon, Sudan, Senegal and Philippines. Additionally, the UAE Food Bank tackled food waste reduction in the UAE by distributing excess food to those in need. Food waste was eliminated by collaborating with local authorities, as well as international charities, to create a comprehensive ecosystem to efficiently store, package and distribute excess food from hotels, restaurants, supermarkets and food trading companies.
