On Sunday 18th March families and runners from across Beijing will gather in Grassetown for the 3rd Annual Harrowthon, a 10k charity fun run. This year’s event promises to be bigger than ever with participants of all ages and fitness levels completing the course.

Harrowthon 2012 will take place at Harrow International School’s Lower School Campus, giving entrants the perfect opportunity to escape the smog for a fun family day out. This year, participants of Harrowthon will be raising funds for Feng Tai Orphanage, a local orphanage that supports children with disabilities and specializes in constructive surgery to repair cleft palettes. The money raised from the Harrowthon will be used for operations for two babies, Zhao Chang Hao and Zhao Pu Si. Zhao Chang Hao is a 3 month old baby suffering from a cleft lip and cleft palette.  Zhao Pu Si is a 13 month old baby girl. She has hydrocephalus, also known as “water in the brain”. 50000RMB is needed to fund both operations and give both children a chance at a healthy future.   Sign up is still open for this year’s Harrowthon!
