Organization: Sedan Chair Charities Fund

Detail: Registration is now open for the 2012 Sedan Chair Race! We welcome all companies, clubs, associations and schools to enter a team for the Sedan Chair Race.

Background: The annual Sedan Chair Race is the main fundraising event of the Sedan Chair Charities Fund. It consists of teams carrying sedan chairs racing around the Peak on a route (2.1km for both courses), starting from The Matilda International Hospital. Teams from a broad cross-section of Hong Kong – corporations, associations, clubs and schools – are all welcome to join the Race.

Over the years, many companies have been supporting the Race because training, creative chair decoration and combined effort create tremendous team spirit and build up goodwill for company employees and benefit needy charities.

Since its inception, the Sedan Chair Race has raised over $61 million for 130 Hong Kong charities.

Duration: 28 October 2012 (Sunday); race – 10:00 -11:00 AM; bazaar – 12:00nn – 3:00 PM
