'No Finish Line' Nice: Get Moving for Charity!
Run, walk or jog as many kilometres as you want from May 26 to 30 to raise money for disadvantaged children on the Côte d'Azur!
Since its creation in 2018 on the Quai des Etats-Unis in Nice, the charitable sporting event No Finish Line is constantly setting a new personal best! At the last event in 2019, nearly 5,000 runners and walkers covered 70,713km, raising €70,713 to finance projects for less advantaged or sick children on the French Riviera. This year, No Finish Line proposes a new challenge to help the children smile! Due to the pandemic, No Finish Line Nice 2021 will take place from Wednesday 26 May at 2pm to Sunday 30 May at 4pm, and the aim is to cover at least 40,000 km! With the 2020 event having been cancelled due to the lockdown, No Finish Line is counting on the commitment of the city to tackle this new challenge and on the enthusiasm of its runners and walkers to pull it out of the bag!
The challenge has had a revamp this year, with a set of brand new features. The team of volunteers are all the more keen and enthusiastic because the race format is unprecedented: it is a No Finish Line that, for the first time, is simultaneously accessible to runners from all over the world. A digital version will be available to watch and stream on social networks because it will be the principal channel for contact, exchanges, information and community on the race. The goal in kilometres to be covered for this new race format is an ambitious one, but which will allow thousands of euros to be raised to help children who have been further disadvantaged by the international health crisis.
Want to get involved? Here's how it works!
WHAT: Run or walk in an outdoor location of your choice - as many kilometres and as many times as you want! For each kilometre you run, No Finish Line will donate €1 (subject to funds collected) to support projects for sick or disadvantaged children.
