Equality in full swing at Go Fun Fearless Dragon Trail Run

Eight hundred sports enthusiasts, including 70 persons with disabilities (PWDs), got together on 28 September 2019 to take part in Go Fun Fearless Dragon Trail Run, organised by Hong Kong Network for the Promotion of Inclusive Society. Entering its second edition this year, the charity run followed the Maclehose Trail (Stages 6-8), crossing Needle Hill, Grass Hill and Tai Mo Shan. Besides donating for the cause of social inclusion, participants had a chance to relish in views of valley reservoirs and stunning scenery from above the hills.

EOC Chairperson, Mr Ricky CHU Man-kin attended as the officiating guest and joined the 4.6km race. “To ensure that PWDs have equal access to all areas of social life, technological advances are not enough; a caring and inclusive community is what truly matters,” said Mr Chu at the kick-off ceremony. “With or without disability, we all have our dreams and aspirations, and none of us wants to be left alone when running towards our goals. I wish for the day when all members of society can compete and realise their potential on an equal basis.”
