About 蝦叔 Uncle Shrimp + 蔡浩良 Choi Ho Leung 's Fundraiser

Uncle Shrimp: a runner columnist. He started running to lose weight at the outset, and thereafter completed his first marathon in 2013, and has finished 16 marathons so far.  To Uncle Shrimp, the benefits of running are not only keeping fit and releasing stress, but a way to observe the dynamics of the community.

“Ho Leung does not wear his hearing aid when running for fear that his sweat will dysfunction it. The strip is the only tool for Ho Leung and me to communicate to each other when we are on a run. We need to communicate using our hearts.

People with visual impairment and hearing impairment are no different from people with abled body when it comes to keeping physically active, but they are hindered by the lack of guide runners and support. I support Fearless Dragon Charity Run, and hope to raise funds to support the participation of the blind and deaf people in sporting activities.”

Choi Ho Leung, totally blind and severe hearing impaired. He has taken up the sport of running for 5-6 years.  He likes running because running helps him relieve stress, bring him happiness and a sense of achievement upon reaching a goal.

“I am happy to have the chance to run in the country side; it’s dull to run in loop repeatedly in a sports ground. Through this race, I wished families of persons with disabilities would be connected to support and help, and have more opportunities to get involved in the society.”

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!
