A Run/Walk in the Name of Crime Prevention!

On 6 November 2016, the Distance Running Team participated in a charity walk and run event. The outing was staged in the colourful and scenic hills of Pak Tam Chung, Sai Kung Country Park. Making the most of the wonderful Sunday morning weather, the team joined other weekend warriors in powering over undulating trails and technical terrain.

Combining elements of running and hiking prowess, the team successfully completed the approximately 13-kilometre route. Despite the rising humidity and temperatures, it was all smiles as members crossed the finish line wearing the distinctive Law Society team tops.

Our team consisted of Ms. Dora Chow, Ms. Winnie Tse, Ms. Chung Wai Yin and Distance Running Captain Mr. Lee Yuen Chuen. No doubt all enjoyed the outing and the beautiful scenery around the country park. We are grateful to the members for taking time out of their weekend schedules to represent the Law Society at the event and to do their part to contribute to the community.

The Society of Rehabilitation and Crime Prevention, Hong Kong (“SRACP”) was the host of this charity event. Its mission is to provide quality rehabilitation and multifaceted services for the betterment of ex-offenders, for the prevention of crimes and the mental wellness of persons in need. With the collective efforts and sportsmanship of all participants and volunteers, it was a meaningful outing every step of the way. We thank the SRACP for giving us such a wonderful opportunity to help others have a chance to shine!

Our gratitude also goes to President Thomas So for supporting the event and giving a presentation at the opening ceremony.
