Participating for the second year, nine team members from ISG Hong Kong participated in ‘Goodman Interlink Magic Mile Charity Run’ in March, which involved a one-mile race to the top of a 15-storey cargo ramp located in Tsing Yi, Hong Kong.

Raising funds for the beneficiary, The Fred Hollows Foundation, a non-profit aid organisation that focuses on treating and preventing blindness and other vision problems, the proceeds of the event will support a major eye care project over the next two years in Gansu Province in Western China.

Over 650 participants took up the challenge, including ISG’s two teams of four, raising approximately HK$1.27m for the event. ISG completed the race in 40 minutes, with an average timing of 11 minutes.

ISG’s managing director in Hong Kong, Tim Threlkeld said, “We are very pleased to be part of this meaningful cause, changing lives of the underprivileged who are in need of proper eye care. It is also a fantastic teambuilding opportunity, for those who craves a healthy challenge and be part of something meaningful. We look forward to participating in the event again next year, and hopefully with even better results!”
