The Executive Centre proudly sponsors The Hong Kong 24 Hour Race 2013 to raise awareness and funds for anti‐human trafficking efforts

As part of its philanthropic programmes, The Executive Centre proudly sponsored the Hong Kong 24 Hour Race 2013, an endurance-type sports-charity event organised by Running to Stop the Traffik (www.runningtostopthetraffik.com) aiming to raise awareness and funds to fight the scourge of human trafficking around the world.

On  the  23th  of  November  2013,  over 500 secondary school students from 15 international schools across Hong Kong and representing some 50 different nationalities, congregated  on  The  Peak  to  raise  awareness  and  funds  for  anti‐human  trafficking efforts. Over the course of 24 hours, student relay teams ran a combined total of 11,219 km in non‐stop relay style around Lugard Road. All the schools put in tremendous physical effort in the spirit of charity, and the overall school winner was Hong Kong International School who clocked an incredible effort of 544 km. All funds raised will be in support of Freedom Matters (www.freedommatters.org.uk) to tackle the problem of human trafficking in South East Asia and Nepal.

Paul Salnikow, Chairman & CEO of The Executive Centre remarked, “We are delighted to be the lead sponsor again this year for the Hong Kong 24 Hour Race which is a very successful philanthropic event uniting youth form all over Hong Kong for great cause through the endurance race. We all know that human traffiking happens nearly everywhere. The fight against human trafficking will not be won tomorrow, but every bit of progress, every step in the right direction can help to save lives.”

Running to Stop the Traffik is a student-run initiative aiming to stop human trafficking and slavery around the world through an endurance-type sports-charity event that raises money for charity. It is a subsidiary event of the Youth Endurance Network, a voluntary platform by young people for young people, nurturing creativity, leadership skills, and uniting young people with a passion for changing the world, impacting this planet one project at a time.
