Simply by participating in the race, 25% of your team’s race fee will be donated to invest in a project, delivered by our local partner, 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.
Choose this cause and the grant will be utilized to promote and develop an inclusive community, by understanding and embracing people with intellectual disability through diversified Unified events.
Choose this cause and people with intellectual disability of severe grade will be able to join Motor Activity Training Program (an outreach training program) that overcomes their physical challenge and enhances their fitness.
Choose this cause as part of the grant will be allocated to organize a regional competition, providing a platform for athletes with intellectual disability to demonstrate their sport talent and meeting friends from countries of different culture.
The Extra Mile helps participants of the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay contribute to their city in a bigger, better way. This year we are delighted to be working with Special Olympics Hong Kong.
