【FOODSPORT COMMUNITY RUN】
Tsuen Wan Ting Kau 9km Community Run
Tsuen Wan Park Plaza
24 June 2023 (Saturday)
18:00 - 20:00
"FOODSPORT Community Run" is a series of Calorie Drive Street Running Programme organized by FOODSPORT; we will take you to run at different districts and routes, to feel the pulse of the city by running, and at the same time, rising for under-privileged groups in Hong Kong.
First impression of Ting Kau is a silent and peaceful location. However, someone might think the traffic congestion in Ting Kau and its poor signal connection are annoying. To be frank, Ting Kau is one of the popular place in Hong Kong as Ting Kau bridge is the first major four-span (three towers) cable-stayed bridge in the world. With the spectacular view, Ting Kau bridge has been being part of the route in Hong Kong SC Marathon for many years.
No matter if you have participated in Marathon, you are welcomed to join our coming community run and have a short tour in Ting Kau area. In the coming community run, FOODSPORT will bring participants to start at Tsuen Wan promenade and go around Ting Kau. Apart from enjoying the view in Ting Kau, we will bring participants to visit the old Ting Kau village, a place full of traditional culture with a bit Japanese style. Someone even praised this place as the painting by Mr. Hayao Miyazaki. Join us and enjoy these beautiful view.
Same as before, all burnt calories will be collected and be donated to our beneficiary, Food Grace. Let's exercise for hunger together. Registration will be available online from 10 June (Saturday, 1200 noon) to 16 June (Friday, 1200 noon).
《ABOUT BENEFICIARY - FOOD GRACE》
Established in 2009, when Hong Kong was experiencing the financial tsunami, the economic downturn and the rising unemployment rate made the life of a group of deprived people even worse. At the same time, FOOD GRACE found that a lot of food was discarded from the supply chain. Food Grace adopted a simple and direct method: when collecting vegetables in the Tai Po market, we used trolleys to greet each food stall, and tried to encourage them to donate leftover food and donate it to unemployed workers in Tai Po District.
Today, FOOD GRACE have not only established a systematic supply chain for recycling and distributing food, and continue to benefit the grassroots through leftover food, but also take the promotion of food cherishing for all people as our responsibility, and use the strategy of "recycling, education, and advocacy" to help solve local kitchen problems.
