SwedCham Hong Kong launch virtual charity run ‘Race to Raise’

The Swedish Chamber of Commerce has launched their virtual charity run, Race to Raise which is a COVID-safe event where the proceeds will benefit PathFinders.

More about the charity run, SwedCham writes:

Time to get moving – join the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in a virtual, flexible, and COVID-19 safe – RACE to RAISE. Compete with your colleagues, friends, or family and raise money in the process. Help us help PathFinders, working with and for the Migrant Domestic Workers community.

The ongoing wave of COVID-19 has seen an alarming rise in Migrant Domestic Workers being left homeless on testing positive. In these particularly tough times, the Chamber has teamed up with Pathfinders and RaceONE to offer you a virtual, flexible competition to benefit Domestic workers in need. You can participate wherever, however, and whenever you like. Run, hike or walk at your favorite spot in the city anytime between March 16 – April 16, by registering for 5km and/or 10km.
