Hong Kong Airlines sponsored and took part in the recent Run 4 Wellness event in support of the city’s youth
As part of its continued commitment to the community, Hong Kong Airlines was a sponsor in the recent Run 4 Wellness event held by the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups on 26 October at the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal. The organisation is focused on promoting mental wellbeing among the city’s youth and through this event gave participants a symbolic experience of the stresses and anxieties that young people may experience today.
As part of the 10km Race, 4.2km Mini-Marathon and 2.1km Family Mini-Half Marathon, participants had to carry a backpack with a book inside, to symbolise sharing the load that younger people might face.
Hong Kong Airlines was a sponsor of the event, and members of the airline’s corporate safety team also took part in the Mini-Marathon. The team, comprising Brian Jin, Alexander Cross, Andrea Sham and Daniela Sciarra, successfully took home the Team Challenge Award.
Funds raised from the event are used to provide financial assistance to young people in need of mental health services.
