Whether you can run with us in the mystical temples of Angkor Wat or just at home there is an adventure waiting for you.
In 2019, 130 heroes joined #RunWithFriends we raised over $35,500! In 2020, Covid-19 happened, forcing the 25th Angkor half Marathon organisers to postpone this traditional December event to a later date. Well, ladies and gentlemen, this day has finally arrived: January 26 and 17th 2021 with a virtual run! The #RunWithFriends campaign is therefore back on and we could not be happier about it!
To support the education of marginalized children and help them to go back to school!
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.
This year, many children are deprived of education since the school shut down. In Cambodia, 1.5 million children cannot access online education. Join #RunWithFriends to help us provide education support to marginalized children, to make sure they will be able to go back to school in January 2021.
Every dollar counts and we are grateful for any support no matter the size. Here a few examples of the impact you could have...
$5 - a school bag for a child
$15 - free school lunches for a child for a month
$25 - one school kit (including a uniform, pens, books...) for a child to go to school
$50 - one month of vocational training for one student
$150 - educational material for our classrooms
$250 - all costs to help one youth to start their own small business
$500 - one year of sports and recreation materials for 250 students
$1,000 - five families provided with training and material to start a poultry business
$5,000 - six months of vocational training for 16 students
No matter your fitness ability or location we have an option for you, whether it is a 3k walk or running a full marathon!
