Why UNICEF is doing this:
It is estimated that more than 1,000 babies continue to be born with HIV every day. The moment of a pregnant woman receive antenatal care is usually the moment she finds out she’s HIV-positive. If they can be diagnosed earlier and thus receive proper treatments, an HIV-positive mother can give birth to an HIV-free baby.

This year, UNICEF Charity Run is expected to raise over $9 million to support UNICEF’s HIV/AIDS prevention works and achieve Zero HIV/AIDS transmission from mothers to children in UNICEF’s Global Campaign. With the support of over 45,000 runners and donors’ generous contributions since 2006, the UNICEF Charity Run has raised more than HK$36.5 million for supporting UNICEF’s HIV/AIDS prevention works in over 150 countries and the Sichuan Rebuild Program.

Your participation will save the innocent children from HIV/AIDS.
