Sport promotes tolerance, mutual understanding and peace. It contributes to social integration and equality. It empowers women, girls and people with special needs.

The diplomatic community in Rabat wishes to show a strong symbol of peace and unity by organizing a 10km race in Rabat as part of the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace proclaimed by the United Nations in 2013.

Each person taking part in this event, running or simply being a spectator, wearing the white T-shirt, colour of peace, will be an ambassador of tolerance by showing that, more than ever, humanity needs solidarity.

All the proceeds of the event will be donated to the solidarity actions of the Diplomatic Circle in Marocco promoting the integration of underprivileged children and women through sport.
