Sedan Chair Charities Race 2017
On Sunday October 29th at 10AM, the Swiss Association team will once again take part in the 43rd Sedan Chair Race at The Matilda International Hospital on Mount Kellett Road.
The Swiss Association has a long tradition and has done very well in terms of awards. For the 2016 edition, the team won:
During the last few years it has become a struggle for the team to collect money for charities. In the earlier years we could always count on the strong support of corporate Switzerland in Hong Kong. Now we receive more donations from individuals. We hope that Swiss companies again will open their purses generously and together with individuals will support not only the team but foremost the many less privileged people in our midst in Hong Kong.
For the team, success on the course is always rewarding but we are even happier if we can show Hong Kong that we are also a caring community.
Cheques are payable to “Sedan Chair Charities Fund”
On the back of the cheque please mark “Team Swiss Association”
Kindly also complete the donation form. This will help us in getting receipts from the organizer for donations of HKD 100.00 up. Receipts will be forwarded to the various donors.
Donation form and cheques to be sent to:
