Ngong Ping Charity Walk 2011

Program for participants all over the world

Hong Kong Youth Hostels Association (HKYHA) introduces the International Exchange Program aiming at raising recognition to Hong Kong culture and awareness of environmental conservation. We welcome participants all over the world to enjoy every moment with us.

International groups and individuals are encouraged to attend HKYHA’s  fund-raising event, Ngong Ping Charity Walk 2012 (NPCW 2012), on 8th January, 2012 at Ngong Ping, Lantau, Hong Kong. The funds raised from this walk will be used to further enhance HKYHA’s current youth hostels, which serve as an international cultural exchange platform for our 30,000 local members and overseas visitors to Hong Kong.

NPCW is the only public activity authorized to use the Ngong Ping trail for a fund-raising charity walk. The event attracted more than 1,500 participants and 500 volunteers last year. NPCW 2012, the sixth year of the event, is expected to have 2,000 participants to support this meaningful community activity, as well as to spend a day out-door for physical challenge or family enjoyment.

I do believe all of the ideas you have introduced for your post. They’re really convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are too quick for starters. Could you please lengthen them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.
