Hong Kong, 11 Nov 2020 –Hong Kong Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF HK) announced that preparation is under way for a new fundraising event set to be held early next year subsequent to the cancellation of ‘Run for every child 2020’ due to the COVID-19 related health and safety concerns. Further details will be announced in the first quarter of 2021. At the same time, UNICEF HK is working with relevant parties to prepare for ‘Run for every child 2021’, as it is expected that the pandemic will be under control later next year.

We thank our dedicated runners, volunteers, supporters, as well as sponsors and supporting organizations of the UNICEF ‘Run for Every Child’ for their unfailing support over the past 14 years. Since the launch of the charity run in 2006, we have engaged over 130,000 runners from different sectors and raised over HK$135 million to support UNICEF’s ‘For Every Child, End AIDS’ global campaign.
