Walkathon cum Fun Day for the CityU family


It takes a lot to beat a leisurely stroll with your family or friends on a bright autumn morning when the air is cool and the sky is clear—especially if it's for a good cause. On 21 October, members of the CityU family will have the chance to do just that, when the Walkathon cum Fun Day will be held on campus. Staff, students, alumni, and their families and friends are all invited to join a 40-minute round-campus walk, organized to raise funds towards the construction of our student hostels.

The government has agreed to fund 75% of the costs of the first two phases—and part of the third phase—of the Student Hostels Project, but the University has to meet the remaining expenses. And although we have received some major donations, the Project still needs the support of the entire University community, which is why we've organized various fund raising activities. By participating in the Walkathon, or sponsoring others to take part, you can contribute towards CityU's goal to become a residential university and provide our students with whole-person education. If you'd like to take part, please register before 7 October. You can form your own team or join in with other teams' check out www.cityu.edu.hk/walkathon for team details and updates. For enrolment details, see the enclosed pamphlet or call the Alumni Affairs and Development Office on ext 9986. In addition to the Walkathon, the Fun Day will include a wide variety of sports activities and entertainment for the whole family. Let's contribute towards CityU's development by bringing along our families and friends and joining in the fun!
