Around the world Rugby people on the Front Line: Fight Covid-19 : Feed those in need : Save Lives. We honour every one of them, and alongside rugby players in the Forces and Police, who lay down their lives for us every day, we will support them in a challenge to travel around the world in 7 days. Join us, support them, save lives. Travel any way you can (human powered only), log your miles, donate to the relief effort to feed children and save lives.

In the US and the world, people are suffering and dying. Both from Covid-19 itself and from the impact of lost jobs, income, food and medicine.


The Rugby Family has stepped up on a global scale, from players in the Forces, like the Royal Air Force, in the Police from the NYPD to the Met in London, and in clubs around the world, to reach the front line on disease and poverty. Many have lost loved ones, many have saved the lives of the starving and vulnerable. The Rugby Family has stepped up and is out there making essential food and medical deliveries.

Long-Term Impact

This Round the World Challenge honours all who serve, The Rugby Family will make a massive effort to go the extra mile for them. Traveling together around the world - under human power until we collectively make it round the world and raise $25,000 - a dollar for each mile - to feed over 25,000 children. Already the challenge has exceeded its target through the combined gifts of supporters in the USA, UK and Asia, via the RAF, through Atlas and $10,000 directy to Unicef.
