Captivating’s 11th consecutive Midnight Run went off without a hitch, making for another terrific year of donations. 

On October the 19th, at 11:00 PM, participants arrived to show their support by undertaking intense 5 and 10KM runs. 

Through their hard work, as well as our volunteers, sponsors and Greg Schultheis, Captivating International, and the Shenzhen Charity Federation Captivating Fund managed to raise funds reaching RMB240,000 ($34,000)! 

The impact that this will have on our projects over the coming months, and those whose lives they affect, cannot be overstated.

This will allow us to continue: 

  • Funding the My First Job Program – which will give 30 girls chef training, and the opportunity for stable employment.
  • Funding the human trafficking monitoring station – allowing the station to operate for a year, preventing young girls from being trafficked.

This would not have been possible without the support shown by all involved. A big thank you, and let’s get ready for Midnight Run 2020!

Saturday, Oct 20, 2018 – Thank-you Greg Schultheis, so many volunteers, corporate sponsors and runners. In total, an amazing RMB225,000 / US$32,500 was received through generous support being made to the Shenzhen Charity Federation Captivating Fund and also directly to Captivating International in Hong Kong. This makes it possible for our partners to achieve the following – all thanks to your willingness to run for a cause, and for companies to get behind this event with their support. Can’t thank you enough Shenzhen.

Between now and October 2019, the Midnight Run will make it possible for:

  • 40 single moms in Qinghai Province to rest easy knowing education for their unschooled girls has now become a reality;
  • full funding for a whole year of a monitoring station that exists to intercept girls before they become victims of Human Trafficking (this will save 10 girls a month); and
  • part funding of the ongoing monitoring, evaluation, and compliance costs of the Captivating support team in China (ensuring we keep focused on key outcomes)

Your hard efforts on Oct 20 will impact the lives of so many in significant ways. Thank you again Shenzhen. You can keep up to date on how the above projects are going on WeChat and also by visiting captivating.org. If you supplied your email to us, we will notify you of stories related to the above.

Looking forward to the 11th Annual Midnight Run next October.
