World of Children Award improves the lives of vulnerable children by funding and elevating the most effective changemakers for children worldwide. Every year, we search the globe for individuals who are making an extraordinary difference in the lives of vulnerable children. We then honor them with our annual Awards and grant them funding to advance their work.
Since 1998, World of Children Award has invested over $6 million in programs led by 100 Honorees serving vulnerable children in countries around the world.
Every mile you run helps a child in need
You're not just running a race when you join Team Changemakers for Children. You're standing with our global World of Children Award family to be a hero for children who need you. Every mile you run and every penny you raise ensures that more children like these have access to vital medical care, warm meals, and a loving environment.
Our funding advances the work of people like C. Mead Welles, who provides free orthopedic care for children in developing countries. He helps children like Alex and Orlando, two young boys from Ecuador who are congenital amputees, meaning they were born without one of their limbs. Like so many disabled children in developing countries, Alex and Orlando could not look forward to a future of independence and opportunity.
Thanks to Mead, Alex and Orlando received prosthetic limbs and medical care. Now, they are not just walking, but running. They are pictured here getting ready to run in their very first 5k race.
Your support will help children like Alex and Orlando walk, run, and thrive.
- Awesomely stylish World of Children Award swag to flaunt during the race
- Ongoing fundraising and motivational support
- Special post-race reception to celebrate!
