2020 World Refugee Day Virtual Corporate Challenge
About this Cause
On June 20th, we recognise World Refugee Day. RUN is hosting a Virtual Corporate Race Challenge! During the week leading up to World Refugee Day on 20th June, you can participate by creating a team of 5 with your colleagues to raise $5k and run separately to accumulate the most kilometers to win the challenge, and run ‘with’ refugees. Supporting RUN means we can continue to provide our sport and education programmes and work towards durable solutions for our most vulnerable participants! Our goal is to ‘run with’ over 30 corporate teams to raise over HKD$150,000 in support of refugees. RUN Hong Kong rehabilitates vulnerable refugees through sport, education, and beyond. Research shows that hiking, running and enjoying the outdoors within a supportive community enables survivors of trauma to rebuild their lives and rehabilitate physically and mentally. Physical activity is also a great way for employees to manage stress from work and to bond with colleagues; especially now, as most of us continue to work from home, and feel the stress of the COVID-19 situation. Running for refugees for World Refugee Day will also benefit you and your team in improving wellness. Track your distance by using the Strava app when you run. The RUN Team will send out the daily leaderboard so your team can see where they stand against other corporate teams throughout the week! Have fun 'running with' your colleagues and with refugees in Hong Kong. We can still remain together, even during this time of being apart.
