WHY “RACE” AGAINST HUNGER?

The Race Against Hunger is not a competitive event. Rather, the primary aim of the Race is for students to engage in a fun activity that teaches them about global hunger while raising vital funds for Action Against Hunger’s life-saving programs around the world.

HOW FAR DO WE RUN?

We have set a distance of 5 Kilometers that each participant is encouraged to finish. The race against hunger will take place on the Hong Kong University of Science and technology running track. The more laps you will run, the higher your donation.

WHEN IS THE RACE AGAINST HUNGER?

The race will take place on October 26th 2019 at 3:00 PM and will last until 6:00 PM.

WHERE WILL THE RACE FUN-RUN BE HELD?

The race will take place on the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology running track.

HOW DOES THE MONEY RAISED BY PARTICIPANTS HELP?

A small amount of money can really make a big difference in the lives of those suffering from hunger and malnutrition. For example:

  • $5 – supplies a lemon, banana, mango, or orange tree to a farming family, helping them incorporate fresh fruit into their diets, prevent soil erosion and desertification, and provide shade.
  • $25 – allows a farmer to buy enough maize, groundnut, or millet seeds for one agricultural season and provides training on how to maintain crops for a healthy harvest.
  • $35 – supports 30 days of therapeutic treatment for a severely malnourished child in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
  • $50 – helps a displaced family with basic emergency materials such as blankets, cooking pots, soaps, etc.
