Go The Extra Mile In Your City
23 May 2019
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, Special Olympics 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.

Choose this cause and the grant will help people with intellectual disabilities in Tokyo, to live active lives through regular access to physical activities and adaptive sports and provide the catalyst for them to reach their full potential.
Run for this cause and the grant will go towards helping 2-7 year old young athletes with and without intellectual disabilities in Tokyo, to play together to learn about and understand each other, and give families, caregivers and people in the community the chance to share the joy of sports with all children.
Support this cause and pave the way for inclusive health for children with intellectual disabilities in Tokyo, who will be linked to providers to ensure year round access to quality health care.
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 Special Olympics as The Extra Mile Partner in 2019.
