“The 24 Hour Race gave me the opportunity to make a large tangible change while meeting incredible people along the way. This was an opportunity for me to develop as an individual and also rally a group of people towards a common goal.”

— William Kwok, Hong Kong Director 2015


Who are Student Directors


The people who go through the 24 Hour Race, this becomes their first step in a longer journey of social entrepreneurship. We see this with directors who graduated 4 to 5 years ago who often accredit their success to what they did when they were 16 or 17 working at the 24 Hour Race.


Not only does The 24 Hour Race provide directors with an opportunity to make a tangible impact on society, but it also adds an interesting chapter to their last years in high school. All of our past directors have gone on to top higher education institutions spanning the globe- from Europe, the United States, Australia, to across Asia.
