Going The Extra Mile In Shanghai
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 in Shanghai.
Simply by participating in the race, 25% of your team’s race fee will be donated to invest in projects delivered by Special Olympics. 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 Education, Health or Happiness. 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 Special Olympics and the causes you can choose here.
