Zwift “Tour for All” Charity Event for Doctors Without Borders

Zwift “Tour for All” Charity Event for Doctors Without Borders

Today Zwift announced a new event titled “Tour for All”, a charity event to support  Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)  in response to COVID-19.

Five Zwift Tour for All Stages From May 4 to 30

Zwift’s Tour for All will be a five-stage event running from May 4th to 30th. Stages will be held across all time zones globally, and in keeping with the name, there will be events for all interests.

Zwifters will be challenged to complete all five stages but can do so in a variety of ways. There will be group rides and runs with both long and short distance formats. Those with a competitive streak will be able to take part in races during each stage, and there will also be women-only events as well.

“I can’t imagine that I will be alone in looking forward to taking part in this challenge and supporting MSF in their response to COVID-19”, adds Min. “However, I’m not just a cyclist (or newbie runner), I’m also a cycling fan. We will have a further announcement connected to Tour for All being made next week. Fellow cycling fans, stay tuned for that one!”

Tour for All Kit Unlock

Riders and runners will be equipped with the new TfA kit in all events. Zwift has not yet released the details for unlocking the kit permanently.

Supporting the Cause

Tour for All (TfA) is being held to raise funds for the COVID-19 Crisis Fund at MSF. Zwift is kicking things off with a massive $125,000 donation, and once 250,000 Zwifters have completed at least one TfA event, they will donate another $125,000 – one dollar for every participant!

A Zwift x MSF donation page will be taken live before the tour kicks off, allowing Zwifters to make further donations if they desire.

Its team of over 43,000 doctors, nurses, logisticians, epidemiologists, mental health professionals, administrators, and others assist people caught in crises around the world.

MSF’s independent, neutral and impartial funding allows the organization access to patients in conflicts where others cannot go. It serves no agenda other than delivering quality medical care.

How is MSF responding to COVID-19?

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) teams are responding to COVID-19 on multiple fronts – caring for patients, offering health education and mental health support, and providing training for vital infection control measures in health facilities around the world. €‹ €‹MSF’s response to COVID-19 is evolving rapidly. MSF is opening new projects in response to COVID-19 and adapting existing ones to help cope when cases are identified.

As MSF scales up its response to the COVID-19 pandemic, a key priority is to keep its more than 400 medical programs running for the tens of thousands of patients and extremely vulnerable communities they help support. This pandemic threatens the lives of people around the world, and presents even greater risks in countries with weak or fragile health systems.
