A Rewarding Day of Exercise and Giving to Orbis

Mar 12, 2018

Early spring is a great time for hiking in support of charity! On Sunday, 4 March, a group of enthusiastic MBA alumni and their families was brought together by the MBA Alumni Association to join the Orbis Walk for Sight 2018. The event is in its 19th year and asks kind-hearted donors and their families to enjoy a scenic stroll to help blind children in need of care. 

The energetic MBA team gathered with over 3,000 participants at Hong Kong International School, the official starting point for both the 6k family run and the 10k challenge. Our MBA walkers chose the 10k route trekking through scenic Tai Tam Country Park and enjoyed the beautiful scenery of the southern part of Hong Kong Island. After a leisurely 3-hour walk, participants and their families attended a carnival filled with bouncy castles, performances, game booths and live music.

All funds raised will go toward providing eye care services in more than 30 hospitals in Asia and Africa. Mr. Raymond Chan, Vice President (Charity) of the MBA Alumni Association, was a participant and thanked fellow alumni for supporting the meaningful initiative. “It was a really rewarding day of exercise and charitable giving that was greatly enjoyed by alumni and their families.”

一舉兩得的一天 透過運動捐助奧比斯
 

早春三月是慈善遠足的好日子!3月4日星期天,一群熱心的中大MBA校友及其親友響應中大MBA校友會的號召,一起參加奧比斯「步步獻光明」慈善步行2018。該活動已是第19年舉行,善心的捐助者及其親友在風景優美的郊野慈善步行,藉此幫助需要照顧的失明兒童。

當天,精力充沛的中大MBA隊伍跟其他3,000多名參加者在大潭香港國際學校集合。那裡是6公里家庭步行和10公里挑戰步行的大會正式起點。我們的MBA隊伍選擇了10公里路線,穿越風光秀麗的大潭郊野公園,欣賞港島南區的優美景色。三小時的漫步過後,大伙兒意猶未盡,一同投入歡樂嘉年華會,享受當中的彈跳城堡、精彩表演、攤位遊戲和現場音樂。

籌集得來的善款將全數用於亞洲和非洲30多家醫院,以提供眼科護理服務。中大MBA校友會副會長(慈善)陳禮明先生也是當天的參加者,他感謝校友支持這項有意義的活動,並表示:「這天真是一舉兩得,既可做運動,又可做善事,校友和他們的家人都感到非常開心。」
