10th anniversary celebration: Fundraising Walkathon attracted over 200 walkers

The 10th anniversary celebration activity of YMCA of Hong Kong Christian College - Fundraising Walkathon came to a successful close on Saturday 23rdMarch with over 200 walkers including students, parents, staff and their friends.  All donations will be used to support various capital improvement projects. 


Officiating at the opening ceremony of the Walkathon, Dr. Yuk, JP, School Supervisor first welcomed all guest, parents, students and friends to the Walkathon.  She expressed her gratitude of the continuous support from the parents since the school established in 2003.  She spoke of the objective of the walkathon is not only to raise funds, but also to unite the stakeholders of the school community.  The school will reach another success when parents, teachers and students “walk” through together as a team.  


Mr. Anthony Li, JP, District Officer (Islands) of Home Affairs Bureau, spoke next and said, “YHKCC has developed to become an international style DSS school in order to meet the needs of Hong Kong as an international finance centre and Asia world city.  I believe that the school will continue to fly and scale new height.”  Following the opening ceremony, Mr. Anthony Li, JP, Dr. Alice Yuk, JP and Mr. Adrian Price, Principal pressed the starter horns to kick start the walk and led the walkers to “march” to the starting point. 


The fundraising walk started at the school, then proceeded around a trail loop in Shek Mun Kap.  It is a safe and friendly trail walk for people of all ages for the enjoyment of a uniquely tranquil and picturesque environment in Tung Chung. 


The afternoon continued with inter-house cheerleading competitions and family barbecue to enhance the communication between students, parents and teachers.  The school campus was filled with the spectators and the cheerleaders of the four houses: Morrison, Taylor, Williams and Chambers. They were fueled by the energy they received from the crowd and dazzled the entire crowd.  Taylor House won the Championship, Chambers House was awarded the Best Costumes Award, the Best Chant Award went to Williams House and Morrison House.


We wish to thank all those who sponsored this event.  The donations truly make a positive impact on the capital improvement projects.  We also wish to thank the parent volunteers who worked behind-the-scene on the day of the event.  In this 10th anniversary, it is great to continue to receive such a strong support and encouragement from parents, students and the local community.  The school will continue to strive to achieve its mission to provide a quality international style education to the local and expatriate community.
