MREF's 2022 Race Around the World for Education starts May 1!

Last year’s race was the MR industry’s single largest fundraiser, generating nearly $90,000 to educate some of the world’s most vulnerable children. More than 1,100 individuals joined a team to walk, run and bike for a great cause, and together we logged more than 75,000 miles!


Once again individuals throughout the market research industry will log the miles we walk, bike and run for 30 days. Through our charitable partner, Baal Dan Charities, we hope to raise $100,000 to support Ukrainian refugee children, especially those displaced from orphanages and children with special needs, with a focus on food and education.


join the race now!




We welcome your sponsorship of our 2022 race! ALL sponsors get a team (or teams) and you can invite your employees, clients, friends and family to join your team in logging their walking, running and biking miles. Participation for employees is free, though they can make a donation to the effort if they’d like. Together we hope to log 100,000 miles in support of this great cause!
