Simply by participating in the race, 25% of your team’s race fee will be donated to invest in projects delivered by our local partner, Emirates Red Crescent, that uses the power of sport and physical activity to address a social challenge in your city. The best part is, you get to help choose where those funds go by choosing a cause you care about, and running for it.

The Extra Mile helps participants of the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay contribute to their city in a bigger, better way. We are delighted to be working with Emirates Red Crescent as The Extra Mile Partner in 2019.
The Red Crescent in Dubai works to promote the spirit of solidarity and compassion within the community, and thanks to the support of the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay, as well as many other benefactors, can continue its charitable programs and projects in the humanitarian field for those in need. The Red Crescent Branch in Dubai has become a centre for humanitarian and relief services, conducting 185 development projects in 13 countries around the world. Both locally and internationally, they coordinate awareness programs, first aid, and the protection and control of epidemics, as well as providing humanitarian assistance for vulnerable, needy people across a variety of causes and when disasters occur.
For the 2019 Dubai relay, US$20,000 will go to Red Crescent. Funds will be used to address the winning cause.
