    RBC Race 2018 1
    Over 2,500 energetic runners line up for the race
     

    Over 2,500 participants gathered at Wu Kwai Sha Youth Village on 2 December to take part in the annual “RBC Race for the Kids”. Organised by The Boys’ & Girls’ Clubs Association of Hong Kong (BGCA), the race returned for the fifth year in a row.
     

    CUHK Business School is a Ruby Supporter of this meaningful event. Ms. Florence Lai, Alumni and Corporate Affairs Director, was invited to join the opening ceremony as a VIP guest, alongside Mrs. Helen Kwok, Assistant Director for Social Welfare Department (Youth and Corrections Branch); Dr. Thomas Chung, Consultant Community Medicine, Student Health Service, Department of Health; Mr. Charles Chan, Executive Director of BGCA; Mr. Rod Ireland, Head, Global Markets, APAC, RBC Capital Markets of the Royal Bank of Canada; and event ambassador Miss Lisa Cheng, Hong Kong champion body builder and speed climber.
     

    The event featured 10km and 3km timed races as well as the family-friendly “Fun Run & Walk”. Participants also enjoyed a host of carnival activities and performances. The inspirational motto “Dream BIG Play BIG” perfectly captured the event’s spirit, while the core message of the day, “Upward Mobility”, reflected a focus on supporting our vital youth – the pillars of our community.
     

    This year, a record-breaking HK$1.2 million plus was raised with all proceeds going to support young people from underprivileged families and BGCA’s Community Creative Learning Centre and Child Development Fund, which caters to children with special learning needs. “The CUHK Business School is honoured to have supported this important event since its inception, the only educational institute among the supporters. We are proud to join hands with BGCA, building a better world for the next generation through our shared vision,” stated Ms. Florence Lai.
