is the world’s leading children’s organisation, ensuring more children are fed,
vaccinated, educated, and protected than any other organisation. Unicef
operates in 190 countries around the world, including every country on the
Clipper Race route, and has done more to influence laws, policies and customs
to help protect children than anyone else in history.
Unicef relies entirely on voluntary contributions and donations from corporate partners. Unicef’s life-saving work wouldn’t be possible without the extraordinary generosity of its corporate partners, who work across a wide range of industries, delivering clear business benefits for them and vital funds for Unicef’s work across the globe.
Clipper Race crews are taking on one of the greatest challenges on earth; testing their wits, skills and courage in an endurance race across the toughest oceans. At the same time, children around the world are experiencing even more dangerous challenges. They’re facing violence, disease, hunger, and the chaos of war and disaster, resulting in millions of children needlessly suffering and dying. This is wrong, and the Clipper Race is helping Unicef to change it
Clipper Race is helping Unicef do whatever it takes until every child is safe.
With the help of crews and sponsors, Unicef can make sure more children grow up
happy, healthy and strong.
Unicef can help put an end to preventable disease and the tragic, needless deaths of children. Put an end to hunger to ensure every child gets the nutrition they need. Put an end to violence against children to ensure every child can grow up in a world free from abuse. And with the Clipper Race crew’s help, Unicef can help make sure children get the assistance they need when disaster or war strikes.
“The Clipper Race sees everyday people take on one of the greatest challenges on earth, testing their wits, skills and courage in an endurance race across the toughest oceans," explains Mike Penrose, Unicef UK’s Executive Director.
"At the same time, children around the world are experiencing even more dangerous challenges. They’re facing disease, hunger and the chaos of war and disaster.
“The Clipper Race is helping Unicef UK do whatever it takes until every child is safe, and we’re looking forward to working together again for the 2017-18 edition of the race."
