The teams were seen off at the start point by Raleigh Hong Kong‘s executive members; Tom Tong, Peter Cornthwaite and honorary patron Kennedy Wong. Raleigh alumni as well as representatives from event partners HK discovery and Re:echo were also there to show support.

We’d like to say massive congratulations to everyone who took part. The record was broken this year by one team who completed it in an incredible 9 hours and 53 minutes! Well done!
Last year funds raised through the challenge went towards Raleigh’s Water, Hygiene and Sanitation programmes in Tanzania, making a significant difference to people’s lives in rural communities.
The grant supported two projects, the first in Miganga, where Raleigh teams worked to install new water distribution lines and taps. The second project took place at Mchangani Primary School in Bassadowish, where the funding was used to provide a much needed safe water supply to the school’s kitchen and toilet blocks.
