Run for Freedom with HAGAR
Making this our 2nd run, a team of 18 runners will form the HAGAR Singapore contingent in the trail towards freedom! They will be forming a 70-runner strong team together with supporters and staff from the other HAGAR country offices and HAGAR clients who will be running this race too! Together with their case managers, clients will endure the race and persevere to the finish line in true spirit of the whole journey!
Held inside the UNESCO World Heritage Site with idyllic landscapes, Angkor Wat is one of the most significant archaeological sites in South East Asia, and a symbol of Cambodia. Every year, thousands of runners around the world fly to Siem Reap to participate in the Angkor Wat International Half Marathon and fundraise for the charity of their choice. Last year, more than 60 supporters from different HAGAR country offices gathered at the event and from Singapore runners alone, we managed to raise over $20,000 for survivors of extreme human rights abuse!
HAGAR provides critical recovery, safe accommodation, education, economic empowerment and reintegration support to women and children who have undergone some of the most horrific experiences, particularly gender-based violence, sexual exploitation and human trafficking. Funds raised from the Run for Freedom will go a long way in enabling critical support in their journey to recovery.
Similar to last year, we are pulling together a HAGAR Team from Singapore to run and raise funds for these survivors. Each of them have been working in their own capacity to rally support from their family and friends, in a bid to inspire hope and sustainable change in the lives of the broken. Check out their campaigns here!
Registration for the run has closed but you can still join us by supporting one of the runners in their endeavour. Each of them have shared passionately about their motivation and personal challenge and we hope that could consider contributing by leaving a donation and a word of encouragement to them.
Special Thanks to Under Armour
HAGAR would like to acknowledge the contribution of Under Armour towards the sponsorship of apparel for our beneficiaries and volunteers in HAGAR Cambodia. This has enabled them to be properly attired for the run as some of them do not have trainers to undertake the race. Thank you for making this run possible for them!
