Massive Congratulations to all our members who completed the Hong Trail on Saturday raising much needed funds for the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. This charity was set up by the Scottish International rugby player Doddie Weir when he was diagnosed with MND in 2017 and has made a huge impact in the research into finding a cure and helping families who are coping with this life devistating disease.
They started at 0600 and embarked on this epic 50km hike taking in the fantastic views of Hong Kong, with some members joining at park View and others for the final 8km dragons back.
There was some much deserved celebrations at Big wave beach with families afterwards.
This was the 3rd year of this challenge and the team have set themselves the target of reaching HK500,000 over the 3 years.
The current amount raised this year currently stands at HK$172,818. They are just short of reaching their grand total by HK10,000. If you are able to donate please follow this link , every donation really does help. https://www.justgiving.com/team/doddie-gump-hk-2020
