Gone Running Charity Work (continuous update)

 

There are these amazing little seeds called compassion.  You should grow some.”

We’re a small local business with only a handful of employees, but we don’t forget the fact that we’re more fortunate than probably 90% else of the world. 

Since established, Gone Running has had the privilege to “do something” for our charity friends.  Though we are limited, we are always blessed with help from our running community, donating us time, knowledge, gear, and other earthly possessions to make good for those less moneyed.

On 14th August 2021, a Tailwind running workshop was carried out.  Coach Joseph Yeung, Kent Lau, and Tailwind ambassador Sammy So, all of them runners of great speed, hard work and success, took a class of generous individuals out for a morning spin, while teaching on how to use Tailwind Nutrition to get the best benefit of sports supplements.  The 2.5hr run raised HK$1,531 for Christian Zheng Sheng College, which is an education facility that guides misled youths back on a self-loving, community-contributing track of life. 

To relive the joy of the day, follow Tailwind-Hong Kong on FB.

 

On 24th July 2021, our beloved trail happy faces, Jeff Campbell and John Ellis delivered a Downhilling Workshop (first since 2017).  With the contributions from both the coaches and the generous participants, a total of $13,000 was raised and equally shared between RUNHK and Christian Zheng Sheng College. 

RUN HK is a HK-based NGO dedicated on rebuilding mental and physical strength of vulnerable refuges, hoping to unite them and help them adapting into the local community through sports, food, friendship, and education. 

 

Since 2020, Gone Running has raised a total of HK$102,625 for the local charity groups, and we are committed to do more.
