Our Vision

 

To challenge our generation to lead global action against slavery through the 24 hour race movement

 
 

Who we are

 

We are a movement of young people around the world on a mission to put an end to slavery. We equip young leaders to be ready for the fight.

Driven by the 40 million slaves who need us, we won’t stop till we’re no longer needed. Modern slavery affects more people now than ever before in human history and is present in EVERY country in the world.

This is why we run. We push ourselves, physically and mentally to help those in need. We run to bring awareness to the cause. We run to stop the traffick.

 
 
 
 

Our approach

 
 

Social Entrepreneurship

We hire students to do all 24 Hour Race operation work. By doing that we transform students to entrepreneurs and social innovators. Our aim is to empower by offering mentorship, structure and guidance throughout the process of organising 24 Hour Race events.

We work with the students around the world to establish business rules, feedback and support systems for their teams, and allow them to map out a plan to develop the resources, partners, and support to build a 24 Hour Race. Despite a strategic framework, the Race will pose a challenge requiring perseverance, creativity, and determination to be a force for good.

 

Fundraising & Awareness

Raising funds and raising awareness about modern slavery in high schools is one of the most important roles of the student leaders. During this time period student leaders receive the most direct support, guidance and mentorship to help them through the stress and challenges of event management, philanthropic advocacy and the responsibility of an entire community.

Leading up to race day the student leaders organises awareness events at their schools, a speaking tour that sees us fly someone from HQ over to talk about modern slavery and the 24 Hour Race, and other advocacy-oriented events. In addition, we work with

However, the OC’s responsibilities are not completed at the end of the 24 hour event. Testing responsibility and commitment, we expect students to participate in event follow-up and handover, soliciting feedback, providing diligent reporting, and closing partnerships to ensure a foundation for the growth of the 24 Hour Race the following year. After the handover is complete, we are are ready to recruit next year’s group of amazing student leaders.

Our Story

It all started in Hong Kong 2010 when a student from Li Po Chun Christopher Schrader, had the vision to unite extreme youth endurance with philanthropy in an event known as the 24 Hour Race.

The idea was simple; student teams would compete in an entirely student-led, endurance relay race, over the course of 24 hours to raise awareness and funds to fight against human trafficking.

Since 2010, the race has expanded from Hong Kong to Kuala Lumpur, San Francisco, Seoul, and Singapore and has quickly become one of the largest youth-led abolitionist movements in the world.
