From the mystical temples of Angkor Wat, to the bustling streets of Bangkok, to Geneva's iconic lake, there is an adventure waiting for you. No matter where you are in the world or your running ability, join us to #RunWithFriends in 2020.
In 2019, 130 heroes joined #RunWithFriends we raised over $35,500! This year is a bit special and the COVID-19 is making things more complicated but we are still hoping to break this record!
To empower the most marginalized children & youth to take control of their futures and break out of the cycle of poverty!
Friends-International is an award-winning NGO and social enterprise empowering marginalized children, youth and caregivers in South East Asia. Last year, we supported more than 84,000 children, youth and their families to get education, training or find meaningful employment and create better lives for themselves.
Join in on the fun this year and #RunWithFriends to help us reach our goal and continue providing support, education and employment opportunities to those who are needing it most in Southeast Asia.
