2 BILLION KILOMETRES TO SAFETY, EVERY STEP COUNTS!

Families that have been forced to flee their homes make incredible efforts to survive. In solidarity with them, at a time when there are more and more global crises forcing people from their homes, the La Tour Geneva Triathlon and the UNHCR (UN Refugee Agency) are coming together to honor their resilience and determination to keep their families safe.

The principle?

Uniting around the symbol of the distance they cover in order to recognise their resilience and determination to reach safety.

Your contribution is key!

  1. When you register at the La Tour Geneva Triathlon make a donation to the UNHCR.
  2. If you wish to go one step further, suggest to your relatives and friends to sponsor you: the UNHCR will receive an amount for each kilometer reached.
