myHK: The Great Hong Kong Bar Race!

The 1st Annual Great Hong Kong Bar Race is done and dusted and simply put, it was amazing!!

Nearly $30,000HKD was raised for Love 21 Foundation, a charity in Hong Kong dedicated to providing nutritional programs and healthy activities for the Down syndrome and autistic community here in Hong Kong.

23 teams of four plotted, drank and raced their way there way though the course before finishing up at Solas.

I’d like to give a HUGE thanks to all of our sponsors, the participating bars and to the participants. Also a special thanks to our almost 30 strong volunteer team, who kept enforcing the rules while also enjoying the spirit of the competition.

Huge thanks to Karishma Khemaney, Bonnie Wong and Monica Wong for all your hard work in planning this event!

I’m already pumped up for the next one! The pictures say it all!!
