Humanitarian Day is held on August 19th to celebrate the amazing efforts of thousands of organisations around the world and to encourage everyone to treat others in the same way they wish to be treated. There are hundreds of aid workers around the world who risk their lives in humanitarian service. Let's run this one for them!
Humanitarian efforts are all about love and this beautiful medal is bursting with love! In the shape of a heart and filled with humanitarian words such as 'caring', 'friendship', 'freedom', 'unity' and many more. We should all try to use the meanings of these words every day to live a happy life.
Any donations for this event will be going to a great humanitarian effort in The Running Charity. This is a fantastic charity that helps homeless 16-25 year olds in London and Manchester get on their feet (literally). We all know that running helps with mental health so this is a great help for those less fortunate to build mental, social and other life skills to build a better future for themselves.
For the Humanitarian Day virtual run, we will be giving away 5 lucky draw Prize Boxes of RFTW goodies worth £25. All runners who complete their chosen distance will be entered into the draw. In addition to these, the top three on the donations leaderboard will also earn themselves a Prize Box.
