Race for Gift, the solidarity race took place on Sunday May 22, 2022 in Geneva under a beautiful spring sun after some years of absence.
39 runners stood on the start line wearing the colors of Enfants du Monde. Thanks to their mobilisation, 9'175.- CHF have been collected so far for our education project in Burkina Faso to develop bilingual textbooks and train the teaching staff in order to adapt the content of the lessons to local realities and to the needs of the students.
Several participants even offered us a place on the podium! Fabrice Rasti from the Daudin team secured the first spot in the 5km race, followed by Jean-Laurent Bosco and Paul Peronnard, both also runners for our association. On the women's side, Rebekah Thomas delighted us with first place in the 5km race and congratulations to our health specialist, Cecilia Capello, for her 2nd place!
Enfants du Monde warmly thanks everyone who took part in the race or who generously sponsored our runners for their support and commitment to Enfants du Monde. We are looking forward to see you in 2023!
