WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN US

Run for a cause

Despite increasing development across Southeast Asia, much of the population continues to be marginalized from society. Last year, Friends-International supported 84,000 children, youth and their families to go to school, to attend vocational training and to find employment.

Scratch off your bucket list

Whether you want to run amongst the temples of Angkor Wat, in the frenzy of Bangkok, in the mind-blowing streets of Singapore or by the lovely Geneva lake, that’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Win amazing prizes

Be one of the best fundraisers and get the chance to win amazing prizes: a night for two in a luxurious boutique hotel, restaurant & massage vouchers, products from our stores and more surprises to be revealed!
