This year’s E.G.G. WALKATHON focuses on children in the central and western part of China who lack;

  • family support or suffer improper guardianship, unsupported children, minor children of prisoners, domestic violence and abuse victims, and sexually assaulted children, left-behind children in remote rural areas, and other children with special difficulties.
  • needy children due to family poverty or their own disability, including mentally handicapped children, children with serious illnesses, etc.

It’s Shanghai’s first largest charity event for the year. The E.G.G. WALKATHON route is situated in the central part of the city passing through Century Park, Century Avenue, a 10km walk along the riverside to the celebrity check-in points. The route continues through Pudong Exhibition Hall (that XI Da visited) symbolizing the 30th Anniversary of the development of the Pudong area and through the beautiful Shanghai Library East Building under construction.

With convenient transportation, the event branding will be colourfully placed along the route. The runaway team members will witness live mural painting by artists on-site, participate in surprise interactions, draw the attention of school children in remote areas, and build the connection between the city and the countryside.

“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.

Mother Theresa

The charity event has received strong support from the Civilization Office of the Pudong New Area. The E.G.G. WALKATHON will comply with the “Implementation Guidelines for Citizen Ethics Construction in the New Era” issued by the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the State Council.

On May 15th, with limited offline participation, it combines an online live broadcast with an interesting active fundraising campaign to promote the spirit of voluntary service.

Follow the official account of Shanghai United Foundation and watch the live 50-kilometre walk broadcast on 15th May.
