TAFISA WALKING DAY – 24h Around the Globe

On October 4th, join us in the world’s most accessible and inclusive relay!

On this day, TAFISA - The Association for International Sport for All - organizes the “Walking Day - 24h Around the Globe”. The event, which will virtually cross the world from the Fiji Islands to Canada, aims to create the idea of passing a baton by all participants.

This global non-profit campaign aims to bring together the Sports for All world and show its solidarity with the most affected people by the COVID-19 pandemic.



The COVID-19 pandemic surprised the world, affecting various areas of society such as health, education and sport. To defeat the virus will only be possible if we come together. This event will be a demonstration of sport as a solidarity and unifying factor of societies.

2.     In the same message, send your name and share a photo of yourself, attaching a short quote, which will be published on social media, in order to increase the visibility of the event;

3.     Two days before the event, on October 2nd, please announce, on social media, your participation in the “Walking Day – 24h Around the Globe”;
