As a prospective participant in Yukon Arctic Ultra 2018, I would like to make use of this opportunity not simply to challenge myself, but also to raise funds for the AYP Club in SKH Bishop Baker Secondary School, for supporting the continuing development of the Club and further inspiring students.
Should the amount of fund raised exceeds the fundraising target, the sum in excess shall be spent on other aspects that would benefit the all-rounded development of students.
About the Club
The AYP Club, despite still being young in terms of the year when it was established in SKHBBSS, has had a very deep connection with me. It is the Club where I was nurtured and developed my own value judgment and worldview. It is thus worthy of our support and nurturing to further expand its positive influence on more adolescents.
AYP, aka. the Hong Kong Award for Young People and formerly referred to The Duke of Edinburgh's Award, is an active member of the International Award Association (IAA). The Award aims to cultivate youngsters with perseverance and the spirit of self-challenge by encouraging them to engage in various tasks and training courses for fulfillment of the Award Scheme.
About the Beneficiary
Having been established in Yuen Long for more than 30 years, SKH Bishop Baker Secondary School has been one of the most remarkable secondary schools within the district, nurturing countless youngsters into mature adults. The school motto, "DAT DEUS INCREMENTUM" in Latin, advocates the belief that understanding the Truth helps people grow spiritually day by day.
About the Event
