The 24 Hour Race is a youth movement since the very beginning. Students plan the events, run the races, fund-raise and advocate in their communities. By providing a comprehensive timeline and framework for the students to put together the race, we nurture youth leadership and entrepreneurship with a philanthropic cause.
“Our mission is to challenge our generation to lead global action against slavery through the 24 Hour Race movement.”
Our event is a global movement that engages young people in a lifetime experience to raise awareness. When a student joins the race, their teachers, classmates, parents will be interested to know more about the cause. When 10 students are joining the race and fundraise in the campus, the whole school will learn about the cause, and people will discuss and talk about slavery issues. When thousands of students around the world are joining the race, it becomes a youth movement - the world leaders, the governments will take actions, make policies and conscious decisions with the stories of modern slavery victims in their mind.
STUDENTS ORGANIZE THE RACE AND THE HEADQUARTER SUPPORTS THEIR GROWTH
The 24 Hour Race is a platform to empower youth. We provide opportunities for mentorship, professional development, leadership, and encourage durable philanthropic values in thousands of young people. We want young people to organize the events, find local solutions to problems, and grow professionally while learning about philanthropy.
Student Directors are leading some key roles in organising the race including contacting schools, volunteers and donors. Our HQ team based in Hong Kong are providing professional mentorship, supporting systems and framework for them to put the event together. We allow our student leaders to be responsible for independently organised events for which we provide the opportunity but they execute.
Besides GIVE, we have received HKD 1,400.00 from other sources.
