Our oceans are the home for countless unique yet diverse species. These mesmerizing organisms form a massive and complicated web of life, each having their own role to play while relying on each other, maintaining the balance of the eco-system. Hong Kong, being merely a tiny dot in the world map, is blessed to have our waters filled with a rich biodiversity.
The funds raised from this campaign will be allocated to the installment and facility of our New Firefly Education Center. It is the first Education center in Hong Kong to aims at providing Environmental Education in point of view of Firefly and another aquatic insect.
This year, I will challenge myself to complete the half marathon on Feb 17th to raise funds for Colin's rare cancer treatment. My goal is to raise at least HK$30,000, and I need your help to get there! While any amount would be a great support for Colin’s family, everyone who gives $500 or above will be invited to a gathering after I’ve completed the challenge, and we’ll co-create a special gift for Colin! Please donate now to help Colin receive necessary treatments for his rare cancer relapse!

By supporting every HK$250, I will lead you run - for a lap of 400 metres. Proceeds will be supporting HKNPIS to promote inclusion and to encourage more disabled people to run. Your support will also directly go to a group of young athletes who have been training in long-distance run in Kenya for years. They live in poverty and are deprived of a chance to unleash their potential.
