About KK Chan + Kim Mok 's Fundraiser
Kim, Founder of Fearless Dragon Running Team (“Fearless Dragon” in Cantonese sounds like blindness and deafness) and the Chief Executive of HKNPIS, who dedicates his effort to promoting social inclusion and active participation of people with disabilities in the society. As a fully blind person, he once thought that he could never walk or run far. But through running training, Kim believes that nothing is impossible. The key is action.
“Running teaches me perseverance, and how to keep my will towards the goals. I will team up with KK, an elite runner, to run in the 15km event, hoping to use our positive energies to engage people surrounding us to support social inclusion.”
Mr. KK Chan, alias Mr. Trailwalker and a 3-time Champion of Oxfam Trailwalker. He is engaged in training for trail running and ultra-marathons. This is his first-time to be a guide runner.
“I am happy to take the challenge of running with Kim in the Fearless Dragon Charity Run. My target is to work with Kim as a whole, and to finish 15km with ease.”
Kim will pair with KK to run in Fearless Dragon Charity Run on 30 April. Please donate to support their attempt to promote inclusive participation!

Support Service for the Children of Disabled Parents
The Programme is designed to support parents with a physical disability to guide their children on school work and personal development. The support is expected to help the children’s all round development and enhance their learning capacity, with the effect to alleviate the vicious cycle of cross-generation poverty. The Programme also provides a series of experiential learning activities in which the children of disabled parents will broaden their horizon and gain knowledge and mindfulness.
Fearless Dragon Running Team
The team consisting of about 80 blind runners and deaf runners, on the basis of sports rehabilitation. The members get involved in the sport of long-distance running and charitable races as a way to help themselves and others.
The team offers a regular training session every week, given by professional coaches, as well as subsidies for registering with races. Team members organise Running Tee Recycling campaigns throughout the year, and then donate the second-handed tee to blind people in the mainland. The initiative encourages the recipients of the running tees to run as well.
Fearless Dragon Academy
The newly-established programme brings together youngsters, Fearless Dragon Running Team members and guide runners to undertake running training, adventure activities and social service. By doing so the youngsters are expected to nurture empathy and community stewardship, to learn from the adult guide runners and the disabled runners. The learning will help them improve the capability of coping with adversity and to plan out their career.
