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!

Please donate now to help Colin receive necessary treatments for his rare cancer relapse!


Why am I running for Colin?

"Please pray for Colin", is the most frequent message I receive from Colin's mom. "Pray for quick wound healing", "pray for strength to start walking"...I often wondered, what else can I do other than praying?

About 7 years ago, 5-year-old Colin was my brother's fellow cancer fighter. They were both diagnosed with the same rare childhood cancer (Stage IV Neuroblastoma). At the time, Hong Kong didn’t have the treatment needed for Stage IV. They went to the US and Singapore respectively, and after receiving a series of treatments, they both became cancer free. A few months ago, however, the cancer came back for Colin and it has spread to his spine and brain. The treatment is now available in Hong Kong, but it costs at least HK$2M. I received a message to "pray for Colin" again.

This time, I decided to challenge myself to complete a half marathon to cover some of Colin's treatment cost!

All funds raised will be transferred directly to Colin's mom's bank account by this website at the end of the fundraising period (28 Feb 2019). If you have any questions, please contact Jessie ([email protected]).
