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, Magic Bus that uses the power of sport and physical activity to address an issue 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 Magic Bus, as The Extra Mile Partner in 2019.
Magic Bus is one of the largest poverty alleviation programs in India, working with more than 375,000 children and young people in 22 States and 77 Districts of the country. In the last six years alone, Magic Bus has reached out to 923,000 children helping them move out of poverty. Our activity-based sessions are carried out across 798 schools and 1934 communities. In Mumbai, they work with some of the poorest children and young people living in poverty, taking them from a childhood full of challenges to a life with meaningful livelihoods using methodology that integrates sport, play and games. The long-term and sustainable outcome is that they equip these young people with the life skills and knowledge they need to grow up and move out of poverty.
For the 2019 Mumbai relay, US$20,000 will go to Magic Bus. Funds will be used to address the winning cause.
