Wan Ting and Alesha tackle their most commonly asked questions on organising the Kuala Lumpur 24 Hour Race: Asia's largest youth led movement to combat modern-day slavery. Wan Ting served as the Events & Logistics Director and Alesha served as the Advocacy & Impact Deputy Director for the race in 2016.
What is the 24 Hour Race?
The 24 Hour Race is a philanthropic movement run entirely by students since 2010. We strive to advocate freedom in a world ridden with slavery. Slavery has been an ongoing problem in history and has yet to reach any signs of declination despite numerous efforts against it.
The race is an endurance based relay composed of teams of 8. Students are given the chance to inspire change on a global level by running, advocating and fundraising for the cause.
