Introduction and Objectives

Since 2006, Heifer Hong Kong’s event “Race to Feed” has raised over HK$47 million to help thousands of impoverished farmers in rural China become self-reliant. Over the years, it has attracted over 8,000 participants. Other than the existing “1K x 5 Relay” , “Individual 10K Run” and “Family 3K Fun Run”, newly added this year is the “Corporate/Organization Group 10K Run” which caters to the increasing interest in long-distance running. Together with this year’s event characters, the “Heifer Special Agent”, participants will perform mystery tasks and accomplish the mission of delivering life-changing power to impoverished rural families in Mainland China! Donations raised will be allocated to poverty alleviation projects in China.

About Heifer Hong Kong

Established in 2000, Heifer Hong Kong works to help impoverished families in Mainland China become self-reliant by providing livestock, animal husbandry training and community development training. Through Heifer’s unique “Passing on the Gift” practice, families are required to pass on the offspring of their livestock, as well as their knowledge and skills to other families in need. This spirit of helping people help themselves benefits the entire community. Heifer Hong Kong also organizes various fundraising programs and promotional activities to engage corporations and citizens to make a contribution in rural poverty alleviation. Until now, Heifer has, lifted over 132,000 families out of poverty and distributed 5.7 million of animals.
