“Race for Water 2019” will be held on 9 March as a prelude to the “World Water Day”.
Participants are required to carry 5 liters of bottled water throughout the 15km, 30km or 42km trail. This campaign not only pose a physical challenge to racers, but also offers a first hand experience of the hardship and difficulties villagers have to face everyday to carry water from remote water source back home. By doing so, we aim to raise funds for various water projects which make clean water accessible to different communities.
We aim to raise HKD 4 million for building water storage facilities in arid regions of China, and purifying facilities in Nepal and Cambodia, in order to bring clean and safe water to over 5,000 people.
