Marathon 2017: First Clinic

This is the 10th time we take part in the Marathon, with a view to gathering runners and donations to support the continuous development of our students at the two Wah Yan Colleges, Hong Kong and Kowloon.

Our goal is to raise $1 million through this campaign. Unfortunately, we have only received around $120,000 thus far. A lack of funding will discontinue the provision of professional coaching at the Schools, suffocating the mental and physical growth of our young students. Therefore, we appeal to you again to consider making contributions.

We would also like to invite you to attend our First Clinic:

Saturday, 5 November 2016
2:30pm at Student Activities Centre, Wah Yan College, Kowloon
Speaker: Mr. Ambrose Leung, WYK2000, who is also a professional athletic coach
Onsite training on running will be provided

We enclose the second Appeal letter for perusal and sharing. Please render your support and circulate it to your schoolmates and friends. Should you need more information please contact Monty Fong on 2336 3688. Many thanks again for your support for Wah Yan.

Just to name a few, more than 20 sports teams are now competing in Division One of the Inter-School competitions and open events, and some young Wahyanites were named Outstanding and Rising Athletes in 2015.

We are therefore appealing to you to continue to support our Marathon Campaign in 2017, with a view to raising HK$1 million for sports development in the Schools. Because of immense competition, we have only got 100­200 group enrolment places in the Standard Chartered Bank Hong Kong Marathon in 2017.
