• Do you like a challenge?

    If you have a thirst for competition, love the thrill of a race or just simply want to make a difference, why not sign up to an organized run, swim or bike? Our latest adrenaline challenge is called ‘Dedicate My Distance’, and it gives you the opportunity to dedicate your next sporting challenge to the students of the Sala Bai Hotel School in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

    Do you want to make a difference?

    In March 2016, Sala Bai inaugurated its new and larger school – capable of training 50% more young Cambodians each year. The problem? The existing student housing is rented, in poor condition, and is too small and too far away from the new school location. The solution? Buy a small plot of land and build a new student dormitory capable of accommodating 150 students.

    Dedicate Your Distance

    With MY STORY II fundraising dinner and auction held last month and the generous donations from private donors, associations and foundations, we managed to raise close to $680,000 of this $700,000 project. This means we're just $20,000 away from our goal! To help us in this final dash, we need 14 motivated athletes from around the world to dedicate their next run, bike or swim to the students of Sala Bai by raising $1,500 each.

    Here’s how to dedicate your distance

    Alternatively, if you’re not feeling up to a race, you can either contact us at touchsalabai@gmail.com or visit Sala Bai's website at www.salabai.com to find out how you can make a difference.

    A little thank you from us

    Category: Education

     

    Your Movement Story: I love a sports challenge and I want to make a difference to the lives of young Cambodians! Supporting the Sala Bai Hotel School means I’m supporting a model solution to the consequences of poverty by providing free education and guaranteed employment with a priority given to young women. So I’ve decided to dedicate the distance of my next race to raise funds for the building of a new Sala Bai dormitory. I’m hoping to raise S$1500 through my efforts! There’ll be pain and I’ll be pushing my boundaries, but every little donation you make is going to encourage me to finish the race and achieve my goal!

    Thank you!
