What do I have to do to take part?

Before the Run

1
  • It's time to look for sponsors.
  • Anyone can sponsor you!
  • Tell your friends and family what you have learned during the Action Against Hunger talks and ask them to sponsor you with a small amount (e.g. 20c, 50c, €1, €2 or €5) for every lap you run.
  • Write this information down on the sponsorship form in your charity passport.
  • You can have as many sponsors as you like!
  • Eat well and train hard so you can run lots of laps on race day.

Race Day

2
  • Now it's your turn to run as many laps as possible.
  • Remember to wear sports clothes, drink plenty of water and protect yourself from the sun.
  • The Run Against Hunger is all about resistance: the most important thing is that you run as many laps as possible. It's not about speed; what matters is that you want to help and show your solidarity.
  • If you get tired, you can stop for a while, drink some water and then keep walking.

 

Go for it! You're going to do a great job!​

After the race

3
  • Write the number of laps you have completed in your charity passport and ask your sponsors for their donation.
  • Hand in all the money to your teacher so they can pass it on to us and we can use it in our projects to help lots of children in need.
  • Remember that any donation, however small, is very important to us.

Many thanks!

Thank you for supporting the fight against child malnutrition!

  • To sponsor a child taking part in the Run Against Hunger, you just have to promise to donate a small amount of money for every lap completed by the runner. The more laps they run, the greater your help.
  • Encourage them to find lots of sponsors like you among friends and family and to train and eat healthily so they can run more laps on race day. Afterwards, hand over the promised amount multiplied by the number of laps they have completed. No donation is too small; all help is important to us.
