Defending the rights of children all around the world by walking that far, 5 times

Nov 24, 2021
When it comes to safeguarding the rights and improving the welfare of children around the world, we all have something important to contribute.

No Finish Line Monaco makes this idea concrete by creating an opportunity for people, including a team from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation’s (SNF) Monaco office, to get together and go the distance to support kids. This year that distance was 224,636 kilometers—far enough to circle the Earth more than five times.

The annual event, held this year in hybrid virtual-physical form, invites participants to walk or run as to cover as much distance as they can in eight days. For each kilometer run, one euro is donated to Children & Future, which works to promote and defend the rights of children around the world by supporting projects in areas including health, education, and nutrition. SNF has supported Children & Future for No Finish Line since 2012.
