Run for Wellness
Run for Wellness
What everyone wants is someone to share their load, literally or figuratively. HKFYG is putting this idea into practice with a special Run for Wellness.

Focusing on the importance of emotional health and the issues surrounding it, people are invited to take part in this fun run on Sunday 9 April carrying a backpack with a book inside, symbolizing sharing of loads.

Running is one of Hong Kong people's three most popular ways to exercise; but it is also a form of relaxation and stress alleviation which can help in emotional wellbeing.

Come run with us. Share the load. Feel fit and help us raise fund for those in need.

Start 8am Sunday 9 April 2017 at Hong Kong Science Park.

Individuals, organizations, schools and families are welcome for the 8 KM or 3 KM runs.

Free T-shirts, carnival and post-run treats
