Run for Freedom HK5Trails Charity Challenge: Supporting TAILS & Giving Rescue Animals a 2nd Chance!

Donate here to help directly!

Meet Simba, a beloved dog and running partner who brings joy to every run along the beautiful Lantau and Tinworth Trails. Just like Simba, there are countless rescue animals in need of love, care, and a second chance at life. That's why we're proud to announce the Run for Freedom HK5Trails Charity Challenge in support of TAILS, a local animal welfare charity in South Lantau.

TAILS is dedicated to providing rescue, medical attention, shelter, and care to cats and dogs in need, including those that are stray, injured, abused, or abandoned. To support more animals and streamline operations, TAILS aims to set up a rehoming centre, a safe haven for rescue animals to find their forever homes. But to make this dream a reality, TAILS needs your support.

Join us on the Run for Freedom HK5Trails Charity Challenge and help raise funds for the rehoming centre. With every step you take and every donation you make, you'll be giving rescue animals a second chance at a happy and healthy life. Whether you're a seasoned runner or a beginner, you can participate in the challenge and make a difference in the lives of rescue animals.

So grab your running shoes, leash up your furry friend, and join us on the Run for Freedom HK5Trails Charity Challenge. Let's run for a cause and help TAILS give rescue animals the second chance they deserve.

Simba and Jessica both rescue dogs loving their home and the Hong Kong Trails ❤️❤️❤️
