Running for charity

On 22 October, the HAECO ITM team took part in the “Sowers Action Challenging 12 Hours Charity Marathon”, supporting charity programmes in Mainland China. The team, consisting of four HAECO ITM ladies with two supporting team members, completed the 26-km race within seven hours. Their fundraising efforts raised HK$10,000, which will be used to support Sowers Action’s Children's Home Programme, providing financial aid to various orphanages in China, as well as other Mainland youth programmes.


Organised annually by Sowers Action since 2000, the Challenging 12 Hours Charity Marathon raises funds for underprivileged children and in particular, aims to improve the educational infrastructure in rural China. It gives participants an opportunity to experience the hardships of students who need to walk several miles to school every day.
