Ezecom has gone the extra mile to help Northbridge International School raise money for the Cambodian Children's Fund with sponsorship of the fourth annual 24-hour run.

The gruelling event involved over 700 pupils at the school running across 24 hours of the day, and beat its original fundraising targets, raising over $6,000 for the Cambodian Children's Fund (CCF).

“In 40 degree weather, we had 700 kids and they were all smiling,” said Kris O’Brien, a Northbridge teacher who helped organize the event. “It’s been a great experience.”

The event covered all hours of the day and night across a 24-hour period, from the scorching noonday heat to the pitch-black midnight hours, with the more-than-enthusiastic pupils pushing themselves to run as far as possible.

As well as the Northbridge pupils, they were joined by 80 students and several staff members from the Cambodian Children's Fund itself. When they weren't jogging or walking, they manned sales booths and providing information about the CCF.

Paul Blanche-Horgan, CEO of EZECOM, said the company is proud to be associated with such an inspiring event. "EZECOM wants to get involved with things that make Cambodia a better place, and this 24-hour run is just such an event. To see hundreds of young people working together to make money to provide life-changing education and services for Cambodia's children is a great honour."
