"Long Distance Running" not only can strengthen one's physical fitness, but also empower endurance training. We aim at promoting importance of playing sports to the public through different competitions. Our ultimate goal is to gather people who enjoy sharing experiences and happiness in "Long-distance Running" with others. “Celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Establishment of the HKSAR” will be the theme of the Sha Tin Long Distance Run in 2017. Through Long Distance Run competition and Carnival, all of us share the happiness and celebrate the historic occasion together.
The Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon is committed to serving the community and supporting different charitable causes. We support three charitable institutions and initiatives: Seeing is Believing-Orbis*, the Hong Kong Paralympic Committee & Sports Association for the Physically Disabled and The Hong Kong Anti-Cancer Society through the Marathon Charity Programme.
This year, DCS will hold an annual concert and participate in charitable performances. To further spread its wings, DCS will also be travelling to Japan for an international music exchange and sing for good causes. Many of our members are students or young adults who are not yet financially independent, and do not have the financial means to pay for their travel expenses. Also, running a choir incurs significant ongoing costs and expenses, e.g. music purchase, venue rental, promotion, administration. Our ticket sales from our concerts are not sufficient to cover our expenses and we hence depend on your generosity in supporting our music.
I am now raising funds for my campaign and I earnestly appeal to you also for your financial contribution. Every dollar helps. Please refer to the donation channels attached and act now to support my campaign.
For many girls in the developing world, the double discrimination of gender and age has placed them at a disadvantaged position. They are often denied access to health services and education, and succumb to violence, abuse, and harassment. Run For Girls is a charity run co-organized by Plan International Hong Kong and Cosmopolitan with the aim of fighting for and promoting girls’ rights and justice, protecting girls in developing countries from discrimination, inequality and violence.

Sai Kung Stray Friends, a community funded non-profit organization in Hong Kong that cares for stray, abandoned and abused dogs, has been in dire need of funds to pay for rent, salaries to the full-time staff, food and medical expenses, and to maintain the beautiful area they have created for their dogs. These challenges are daunting, and eviction and euthanasia are distant but looming possibilities. My name is Ansh Sahay and I am 14. I’ve launched the ‘Save SKSF’ Project to ensure and secure a long lasting future for the foundation, the 100 dogs being taken care of there today, and the hundreds more that will be looked after in the future.
"re: do/ Joseph Lee/ KT Yau" is the first crowdfunded local dance production. The project, re-staging two mature and distinctive solo works, aims to reach more audience and give choreographers a chance to revisit their works. Through crowdfunding by tickets pre-ordering and donation, the project is looking for a more organic and alternative way of creation besides governmental funding, with higher degree of autonomy and more direct participation of audience in return. It is believed that with the aids of the crowds, arts creation could be supported without governmental funding thus bridging the gap between audience and arts creation.
