Race for Gift

Published on : 28 March 2018

Through the Race for Gifts, you can contribute towards offering reconstructive surgery to children in Africa: participating in the race – or supporting a participant – will allow someone to walk towards a future full of hope!

Race for Gift, Switzerland’s first solidarity race, will take place on 27 May 2018 on the Mont Blanc rotunda in Geneva. Take up this solidarity challenge and support Mercy Ships’ reconstructive surgeries in Africa! To participate:

  • Register to walk or to one of the two races on the Race for Gift site
  • Collect (at least) 300 CHF from friends, colleagues and relatives



About 5 billion people worldwide do not have adequate access to surgical interventions.

Every year, Mercy Ships provides more than 1,500 free surgical interventions and 8,000 dental treatments to those without access in developing countries. Mercy Ships also works with host nations to help fill the gaps in healthcare systems through training opportunities and infrastructure projects.
