• The Lighthouse Club Hong Kong Lap Dog Challenge is back

    19 October 2017

    In 2016, 25 runners from 5 firms ran over 700km and raised in excess of HK$1 million for the Lighthouse Club Hong Kong Benevolent Fund.

    On 4 November 2017 40 runners (the “Lap Dogs”) from 8 firms, namely Aurecon, CBRE, Dragages, Gammon, ISG Commtech Asia, Leighton, MTR and WT Partnership, will gather at the Stanley Ho Sports Institute’s 400m athletics track with the aim of running as many laps as they can in a 5 hour period between 7am and 12 noon.

    This won’t be “a walk in the park”. We are hoping the 40 runners will run over 2400 laps, (or nearly 100km)  with some of the individual runners covering 40+ km in the allotted time.

    Our Lap Dogs are in training and we sincerely request your generous support of the fundraising effort in the form of personal or corporate sponsorship, which can be made in the following ways:

    1 complete the attached sponsorship form and return it to LDC@wtphk.com, confirming your sponsorship of a single firm, or all the Lap Dogs, for each lap completed. Alternatively you may pledge a lump sum to the fundraising effort.

    2  make a donation using your credit card via the Lap Dog Challenge 2017 Just Giving webpage

    https://www.justgiving.com/campaigns/charity/lighthousehk/lapdogchallenge

    All donations of HK$100 or more are tax deductible in HK and receipts will be issued for this purpose upon request.
