There are more than 5 million Syrian refugees, many of them children. Many refugees escaped in the pursuit of a better life, and the first step to this is an adequate education. Help us support Syrian students by sponsoring a runner in the 2020 Syrian refugee run.
The second Run For Syria event was a huge success! 4 runners ran a full 50 k, and an additional 20 or so runners completed 25k, raising thousands of dollars for Syrian refugees. Check it out!
What is "Run For Syria"?
The Syrian Refugee run is a non-competitive 25 or 50-kilometer run that travels the length of the Hong Kong trail. Teams of runners will have to fight to finish the full 50-kilometers before the sun sets. There is no saying if a runner will complete the full race, as it is a challenge to traverse the many canyons and mountain peaks of Hong Kong island. We are asking sponsors to donate a small amount of money to a runner of their choice, for every kilometer they run. All proceeds from this race go to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, helping support Syrian refugees who have had to escape the deadly civil war. Your support is greatly appreciated.
