Marathon 2014 – Urgent Call

The next Marathon will be held on Sunday, 16 February 2014. For 7 years in a row, we aim to gather 400 runners to take part in the 10Km Run 2 @ 6:30am as a Supportive Group to raise HK$1 million to sustain sports development in the two Wah Yans. Unfortunately, boys aged below 16 are not allowed to run this year. This new rule is seriously hampering our chance to fulfill the 400-runner target, not to mention the fundraising goal.

We are motivating our senior students and parents from all forms, as well as teachers and staff members of the Schools to attend, with a view of recruiting 300 runners or more. Now we have to appeal to you and your schoolmates to join to generate another 100 runners or more. We have to fulfill the runner number target this year else our status as a Supportive Group will be discontinued. What’s more important, the virtue of running and fighting spirit in the Schools will also be affected.

Wahyanites, time and situation are critical NOW. Yet let’s hold our heads high and strive our best to help our young gentlemen by taking part in this Run. Please complete and return the attached enrolment and donation form together with your gifts by Monday, 30 September 2013. Also please disseminate it to all your schoolmates and friends to encourage them to take part. Together as One Heart and One Family, you will make a big difference for our young Wahyanites!

Please call Monty Fong on 9092 9433 should you need further information. We look forward to welcoming you at the first Clinic on 26 October 2013. Again our heartfelt thank-you for your unfailing support.
