Make a Difference: EMpower Up

Book Fold
img-empower_up

EMpowerUP is our global sports campaign that raises money for EMpower through sports.

Our sporty supporters have globally raised over $1 million for EMpower, fundraising through everything from climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, to bowling tournaments in London, to Marathons in New York, Boston, London, Hong Kong, Madrid and Paris, as well as group cycles through the French Pyrenees and along the US coast! It’s a great way to have fun, challenge yourself and really make a difference. If you are taking on a personal or group challenge with friends or colleagues this year, why not fundraise for EMpower while you do it? Grab a place at a sporting event, or organize your own!

Get in touch with us and we will set you up with a fundraising page and support your challenge from start to finish.

From our athletes...

"Thank you for all your support. We somehow both made it to the top of the mountain in just about one piece despite Mother Nature's best attempts to wash us down the slopes!”

“EMpower's approach of targeting local communities and empowering younger generations to become future leaders and enact change is one we find extremely compelling and in our opinions is the most effective form of help."

Irfan Ladak, Mt. Kilimanjaro climb 2015

“EMpower and our grantee partners continue to inspire my trust and I am proud to be associated with this work. With your support, I was able to raise over US$11,000 in 2013 and US$17,000 earlier this year by running in the Hong Kong Marathon. In 2015 I hope to do even better.”

Vishal Tourani, after visiting EMpower grantee partners in India Vacha Trust, Aangan Trust and Vidhayak Sansad.
