A Unique and Meaningful 15km Run

UNICEF Charity Run, a pioneering long-distance race staged in Hong Kong Disneyland Resort and Sunny Bay, is making a grand return with a unique 15-kilometer race to mark the 15th year of this philanthropic event. Ms. Judy Chen, Chairman of UNICEF HK said, "During the inaugural UNICEF Charity Run in 2006, we proudly organized an empowering 15km race. Now, in this momentous occasion, we have brought back the 15km Run, inviting all to join hands with UNICEF and continue forging a path towards the betterment of children's lives." She further explained that the focus of SDG3 this year is a direct response to the profound impact caused by the pandemic in the past 3 years, the adversity it had on the growth and well-being of children and adolescents worldwide. It is in recognition of the transformative power of sports, which can contribute significantly to both physical and mental health.
