The Ultimate Rickshaw Challenge
Saturday, May 17, 2014, SAS Puxi Campus
OUTWIT, OUTPLAY, OUTRUN
The ultimate team building challenge is here! Engage the strengths and creative forces of your staff. For the first time in Shanghai - experience a one-of-a-kind event with tough competition that will test your team’s strength, intelligence, strategy and co-operative play. Proceeds will go to support scholarships for high school and university students from local working poor families.
Shanghai Sunrise is a charitable organization under the Shanghai Charity Foundation and was established in 1996. Since then, we have funded over 9,400 scholarships to needy local students. In China education is only mandated for grades 1 - 9, many of the working poor families (per capita income below RMB 1000 per month) cannot afford the annual public school tuition fee of RMB 3000 for grades 10 through 12. Unlike university, student loans are not available for high school. Through the financial support of individuals and corporations, our Shanghai Sunrise sponsors ensure these students are able to graduate from high school and have the chance to go onto university. Most of all, our sponsors give the opportunity to these families to lift themselves out of poverty and improve the lives of future generations in China.
We expect significant media coverage for this event as it’s the first one of its kind in China.
Let your company stand out as a steadfast supporter of the greater Shanghai community!
