CAPTIVATING & SHENZHEN CHARITY FEDERATION proudly present
The 2020 Midnight Charity Run
A fund-raising event supporting the work of Captivating in China
Thank-you Greg Schultheis, Simon Jenkinson, all of our volunteers, corporate sponsors and runners. In total, an amazing RMB277,000 was received through generous support being made to the Shenzhen Charity Federation Captivating Fund and 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 – Thank you Shenzhen!
Between now and October 2021, the Midnight Run will make it possible for:
- My First Job – 30 Girls, will be trained as Assistant Chefs
- 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).
Congratulations to our winners:
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!
