Everybody really enjoyed doing the stretching & Chi Gong exercises.
Everybody had enjoyed the event and of course the exciting orienteering in the midst of the fog that you can hardly see your fingers. See below the link of the video:
It was a relaxing walk around the Peak, starting from Harlech Road (夏力道) and ending at Lugard Road (盧吉道). The route covered 2 miles.
It was a very very foggy morning at the peak on that day, yet the weather didn’t deter us from contributing for this meaningful fund-raising activity which aims at enabling the work of the foundation in promoting spinal health and education for our community.
Starting at Luard Road, we walked along the peak, it really took us a lot of courage and faith to walk as we could hardly see the road in front when we walked. With our persistence and faith of eventually completing the walkathon, along the walk, I had witnessed lots of beauty of the nature that we have overlooked when I walked by the peak. Here are some beautiful pictures that I had taken at the peak.。
