Bahamians Invited To Participate In One Run Global Challenge
By Brent Stubbs
#BAHAMIANS are being invited to participate in the One Run Global Challenge on December 10.
#Hosted on Human Rights Day, Bahamians are encouraged to join thousands of people from 195 countries around the world competing in the challenge.
#It will take place between the hours of 7-8pm and participants are advised to either run or walk the 10k distance.
#According to One Run co-founder Danny Bent, all are invited to participate.
#“2020 has been filled with extraordinary events, stories of inequality, injustice and hardship. We’re coming together to show the world that love is a human right and no child should be hated for who they are,” Bent said.
#“We welcome every country, every age, every ability, every gender, every human being with open arms.
#“This isn’t about being fit or getting a personal best. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never run – what matters is showing up and taking part in whatever way you are able.”
#The One Run Global Challenge is being backed by several celebrities, including Tom Daley, an English diver, television personally and YouTube vlogger; Mayim Bialak, an American actress, neuroscientist and author and Billy Porter, an American actor and singer, as they determine that One Run is more than just a run.
#“They are unitying #EveryHuman for a change in a 24-hour celebration of humanity,” Bent said.
#“They are also encouraging participants, partners, artists and celebrities to join together and raise funds for causes that stop injustice and inequality against children.”
#One Run Global is partnering with charities such as Unicef, No Bully, NO8H Campaign, Do Something and Know Your Rights Camp.
