Story

We are six friends  deeply connected with the shipping industry, and we want to support the outstanding work done by the Mission to Seafarers and Reverend Stephen Miller of the Hong Kong Mission.

We will be taking on the Green Dragon Race challenge, hiking 28 kms over 2 days in Japan, as Teams Ido (Latitude) and Keido (Longitude), and our goal is to win the Fundraising challenge !

90% of goods are transported by sea, yet the Seafarers are too often the forgotten and silent actors of this global trade, facing difficult and dangerous working conditions, away from their communities. The Mission to Seafarers provide support in ports to crew members, and also support their families back home throughout their community projects.

Support our Teams, support the Mission and support the Seafarers who ensure that most of what you consume get to you and your family !

Thank you !
