About 24 Hour Race: In 2010, Christopher Schrader had a vision to create an event that bridged extreme endurance with philanthropy. Working together for months with a group of students, the first 24 Hour Race took place in Hong Kong.

Since that first race the 24 Hour Race has rapidly expanded as a youth movement. Students plan the events, run the races, fund-raise and advocate in their communities. By providing a comprehensive timeline and framework for the students to put together the race, they nurture youth leadership and entrepreneurship with a philanthropic cause.

Our mission is to challenge our generation to lead global action against slavery through the 24 Hour Race movement.”

The 24 Hour Race event is a global movement that engages young people in a lifetime experience to raise awareness. When a student joins the race, their teachers, classmates, parents will be interested to know more about the cause. When 10 students are joining the race and fundraise in the campus, the whole school will learn about the cause, and people will discuss and talk about slavery issues. When thousands of students around the world are joining the race, it becomes a youth movement – the world leaders, the governments will take actions, make policies and conscious decisions with the stories of modern slavery victims in their mind.

STUDENTS ORGANIZE THE RACE AND THE HEADQUARTER SUPPORTS THEIR GROWTH
The 24 Hour Race is a platform to empower youth. 24 Hour Race provides opportunities for mentorship, professional development, leadership, and encourage durable philanthropic values in thousands of young people. They want young people to organize the events, find local solutions to problems, and grow professionally while learning about philanthropy.

Student Directors are leading some key roles in organising the race including contacting schools, volunteers and donors. 24 Hour Race’s HQ team based in Hong Kong are providing professional mentorship, supporting systems and framework for them to put the event together. They allow their student leaders to be responsible for independently organised events for which 24 Hour Race provides the opportunity but students execute.
