On Sunday, the 22nd of May 2022, it's time again: We run for children in need. For the seventh time, the Race for Gift charity run will take place in Geneva. Through your physical support, we want to enable children all over the world to learn.
30 runners competed for Save the Children in 2019, raising a total of 10,000 Swiss francs for children in need.
The Race for Gift charity run calls for the physical commitment and solidarity of every individual – whether small or large, professional or amateur. Together, we want to enable as many children as possible to continue learning. Whether in a remote region of the world, in a refugee camp or directly after a disaster – your physical support helps children worldwide.

The event will be held on Sunday, the 22nd of May 2022, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Rotonde du Mont Blanc on Lake Geneva.
Run for children like Diana
Due to the armed conflicts in her hometown in Syria, Diana and her family had to leave their home behind. Today, the 9-year-old lives in a refugee camp in Iraq. Thanks to the support of Save the Children, she can attend classes at a nearby school and has been provided with learning materials, pencils and books, among other things. However, Diana is not an isolated case: one in five school-age children worldwide cannot attend school. In our education projects, we work to ensure that every child, regardless of their background, gender or needs, has access to education.
