Take the challenge and give back
THE HONG KONG KAYAK AND RUN WAS held on September 2 in Deep Water Bay with the usual family and adult races. This year, this was prefaced by children from Hong Chi Winifred Mary Cheung Morninghope School being taken out in kayaks by experienced instructors for short try-out races. All the children seemed to enjoy the outdoor experience and the rare taste of nature saw lots of smile-filled faces, satisfying the organiser and its partner charity, Action Asia Foundation. In the competive racing, Joseluis Alvelais and Romain Demare of team Invaders grabbed the win ahead of Team Uglow, with Langkawi in third in the Adult race. “The race was challenging and amazing overall. Romain [Demare] has been pushing me all the way and the result is great. We are a good team!” said Alvelais afterwards.
