Marathon 2017 Appeal Letter

A decade of the sweat of brow has helped us raise over $7 million to support sports and brotherhood development in the two Wah Yans. Your generosity had enabled our Schools to provide professional training to help students improve their physiques, mental strength and pursue new heights in different sport. 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.

Date: Sunday, 12th February 2017
Race: 10km Run 4, starting 7:45am
Venue: Victoria Park, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong
