2015 Ping Pong-a-thon: Serve Up Some Justice

This September/October, more than 1,500 everyday Aussie boys/men will participate in the 2015 Ping Pong-A-Thon (a 24 hour table tennis event), at one of 44 venues throughout Australia, to raise awareness and funds for several organisations engaged in the prevention of human trafficking and sexual exploitation of young people in SE Asia.

The Ping Pong-A-Thon has already raised more than $200,000 since it began in 2011 and is aiming to raise a further $200,000 in 2015.

The event focuses on engaging the hearts of men because men are the drivers of demand on these issues, yet are typically absent when it comes to being part of the solution/advocating.

Boys and men of all ages must register online, (committing to play three hours of table tennis in the 24 hour period and engage their network of family/friends to sponsor them). Women are invited to encourage the men in their lives (husbands, sons, brothers, grandfathers, friends) to participate, (a few 2015 Pong venues are opening to direct participation of girls/women).
