This year, we are proud to introduce The Extra Mile: a chance to make an impact way beyond the finish line and contribute to philanthropy in a bigger, better way. The Extra Mile is a community-led initiative by Bloomberg Square Mile Relay, which addresses a unique social challenge in each city. It gives runners and spectators alike the opportunity to make a meaningful and actionable difference to public health, education, arts or the environment of their communities, all through using the power of sport. Not only do we run these cities - we care about them, too.
In Paris, the social issue to be addressed in the city is: SOCIAL INCLUSION!
In Paris, The Extra Mile will team up with sport-for-development organization PLAY International to provide programming that will generate new solutions that use sport to promote the social inclusion of refugees.
The relay community will soon have a chance to volunteer in interactive and exciting activities that addresses this winning challenge and kicks off the yearlong support of The Extra Mile in Paris. Please join us and go the extra mile yourself by participating in one of the upcoming volunteer days, it will be an experience you’ll never forget!
