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!
