For the past six years, the Federation has also publicly celebrated
this magical occasion. Since 1998, we have encouraged 18 year
olds to take an oath, led by a prominent member of the community,
by which the youth vowed to take their civic duties and responsibilities
seriously and to show commitment to the community.
This year, we have decided to complement the oath taking ceremony
by also inviting those young people who will turn 18 to participate
in hike from The University of Hong Kong to Victoria Peak,
a distance of approximately 3 km.
The participants of this trek will be encouraged to dress
up in costume, while also undergoing various ‘tests’ and ‘trials’
on the route, all conducted in a spirit of fun and enjoyment.
The ascendant trek, as well as the activities along the way,
is to symbolise the upward journeying of young people, that
they can reach the peaks of their own ambitions and desires,
in spite of obstacles and challenges.
Each participant requires a sponsor, because this event is
to raise funds for disadvantaged children and young people
who live in our community. Therefore we urge you to come and
join us! Sponsor an individual and encourage any 18 year old
that you might know, friend or relative, to join in this trek
to help support young people and the work of the Federation.
Do call the Partnership Office on 21239598 for more details.
