On a warm, bright Sunday, Wu Kwai Sha Youth Village was alive with activity as the RBC Race for the Kids returned for the fourth year in a row. The race was held on 14 January and organized by The Boys’ & Girls’ Clubs Association of Hong Kong (BGCA).

CUHK Business School has been a proud Ruby Supporter of this meaningful event since it began, and is the only educational institution to support the race. Ms. Florence Lai, CUHK Business School’s Alumni and Corporate Affairs Director, served as an officiating guest at the opening ceremony, along with the Honourable Bernard Charnwut Chan, Non-official Convenor of the Executive Council; Mr. Rod Ireland, Head, Global Markets, APAC, RBC Capital Markets of the Royal Bank of Canada; Mr. Jeff Nankivell, Consul General of Canada in Hong Kong and Macao; Ms. Amy Chan, JP, District Officer (Sha Tin); Mr. Tony Ho, Chairman of the Children’s Cancer Foundation; Dr. Ng Yin Ming, Executive Committee Chairman of BGCA,  and Mrs. Annie Liang Bentley, a member of the Branding, Fundraising and Resources Development Committee of BGCA. After the race, everyone joined together for an exciting carnival full of fun activities for the whole family to enjoy.  

With the heart-warming motto, “Dream BIG Play BIG”, the race supports young people in the community, helping them realize their potential and move up in the world. This year was a great success, with a record-breaking number of more than 3,500 participants raising about HK$1 million. The funds will go towards BGCA’s Community Creative Learning Centre and Child Development Fund, as well as providing for young people from underprivileged families and those with special needs. 

“I was thrilled to see our alumni and their families enthusiastically making a difference to the community,” Ms. Florence Lai remarked. “We are proud to be supporting the fourth year of this meaningful event, and will continue to bring our alumni together in building a better world for the next generation.”
