At the heart of everything we do are our values. We ask all organisers and participants to embrace these values. Different communities may emphasise each value to a greater or lesser extent; for instance Fundraising may have a higher priority than Togetherness in one community and Wellness greater than Fundraising in another – that’s fine! Around the world these values balance themselves out and together we change the world one step at a time.
Let’s do something together we couldn’t possibly do on our own.
Bringing people together for a fun or challenging event creates an opportunity to forge relationships between community groups, churches, businesses and other agencies.
Use the event to raise funds for whatever cause or project you feel will make a difference to your community or globally. There’s no centralised fundraising cause.
Uniting the world by holding an event in all major time zones and accumulating at least 40,000km – the circumference of the earth – on one day. Everyone has their part to play even in remote communities.
It’s great to unite to promote physical, emotional and spiritual health and wellness. In many cases this leads to a more active lifestyle.
