All the school teams demonstrated  tremendous tenacity in the spirit of charity, and the overall school winner was Hong Kong International School, which clocked an incredible distance of 594 km. 100% of the funds raised will be donated to beneficiaries including:  Freedom MattersAPLE Cambodia,
Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation, HOME, SUKA in support of responsible, long-term, sustainable interventions against human trafficking in South and South East Asia.

The fight against human trafficking will not be won tomorrow, but every bit of progress, every step in the right direction can help to save lives.”
