London - The Extra Mile
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 Greenhouse Sports as The Extra Mile Partner in 2019.
Simply by participating in the race, 25% of your team’s race fee will be donated to invest in projects delivered by Greenhouse Sports in London. The best part is, you get to help choose where those funds go by choosing a cause you care about, and running for it. When you complete your personal profile on our website you will choose one of three causes to run for, from Inclusion, Education or Empowering Women & Girls. Then, on race night, your lap in the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay won’t just be for your team, but for your Extra Mile cause too.
The cause with the quickest average time will win a minimum donation of US$20,000. Funds will be used to address the winning cause across a year-long project. Find out more about Greenhouse Sports and the causes you can choose here.
