About 盧俊賢Steve Lo + 鄧炳業Tang Ping Yip's Fundraiser

Tang Ping Yip, a totally blind person, and trained as a social worker.  He worked on a management position at an orphanage in Guangxi, and now works as a guide at Dialogue in the Dark Hong Kong.  He was so physically weak that his doctor advised him not to run.  Thanks to the training from Fearless Dragon Running Team, he has become stronger and has completed 7 half marathons.
 
“Although I am weak and blind, I can do it! I hope people will be inspired by my experience and get motivated to believe in themselves.”
 
Steve Lo, the first Hong Kong person to complete Grand Slam of ultra-marathon (8 ultra-marathons held in seven continents) in two and a half years. He ran in extreme conditions, from desert, both the North Pole and the South Pole, highland, snow mountain to volcano. He completed the Blindfold 100 Challenge on 25 March by running 22 km with his eyes covered to raise funds for Fearless Dragon Charity Run.
 
“I have been aspiring to be a guide runner as I think athletes with a visual impairment are superb. They finish races without seeing. I look forward to be a guide runner and definitely I will learn a lot from them.”

Fearless Dragon Charity Run 2017 will be held on 30 April in Pak Tam Chung, Sai Kung.

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.



Fearless Dragon Trailwalker Team

Three teams of Fearless Dragon runners will be taking part in the Hong Kong and Belgium Trailwalker this year. Your support counts!
