Recently, our vibrant Mad Monkey team laced up their running shoes for the 9th Sihanoukville International Half Marathon, an event dedicated to the “protection of nature, saving our globe and the well-being of humankind.” This aligns beautifully with our ethos of wellness and environmental responsibility. Fueled by this spirit, we’re now setting our sights on a bigger challenge.

From Marathons to Ironmans, there is no stopping us at Mad Monkey!

Next on our agenda is the formidable Ironman 70.3 in Cebu, where Mad Monkey’s co-founders, Alex Darroch and Tom Edwards, are pushing their limits not just for athletic glory but for a heartfelt cause: supporting The Rabbit School in Cambodia. This school provides crucial education to over 670 children with intellectual disabilities, empowering them with brighter futures.

The Rabbit School, Phnom Penh

Over a decade ago, we started our journey with The Rabbit School by providing employment opportunities for their students in Phnom Penh, and we’ve been awed by their dedication and progress despite numerous challenges. Now, as Alex and Tom face the grueling Ironman challenge, they’re driven by a mission to raise $2,000 to help these incredible kids.

The power of a community

As we support our co-founders on their journey from the marathon tracks in Sihanoukville to the triathlon course in Cebu, we’re reminded of the power of community and the importance of our mission. Every stride and stroke brings us closer to supporting the dreams of children who face extraordinary challenges every day. Your support can light up their path toward education and integration, creating waves of change that reverberate throughout their lives and our community.
