Four 12 Year Old Students To Tackle Hong Kong’s Longest Trail to Raise Funds for The Child Development Centre (CDC) for Children with Special Needs

HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach –  9 March 2021 – From 27 to 29 March 2021, four secondary school
students will challenge themselves to complete the longest trail in Hong Kong -
the 100km MacLehose trail. Their aim is to raise essential funds for The Child
Development Centre (CDC), a non-profit organisation that supports children with
special educational needs. Please support and
donate to this cause at

Jack,
Jaden, Gabriel, and Martin are year-12 students at an international school in
Hong Kong. The hike they will complete is not only daunting in length, but also
challenging due to the elevation of 5,053 metres. The students chose the CDC as
the sole beneficiary as Jack’s younger sister previously attended an early
intervention programme there. “This
organisation (the CDC) is very close to Jack’s heart, as he has a younger
sister with Down’s Syndrome, and understands the difficulties that families
face when raising and educating special needs children to reach their full
potential, which is something that every child deserves.


 


“Money
donated to the CDC will go towards programme and service expenses, allowing
them to aid even more families, and provide even better care with their top
notch teaching specialists and therapists. Furthermore, it is no doubt that
under the current COVID-19 pandemic, non-profit organisations like this will be
impacted the most, so any money donated will be especially helpful now more
than ever.

We would really appreciate your support on our journey and cause!”


 


Dr. Yvonne Becher, the Chief Executive of
the CDC, expressed her gratitude to the students for organising this meaningful
event, “we are grateful for Jack’s and
his team’s initiative, and are glad that the CDC’s work is being recognised and
has created such positive value to families throughout the years. Hope everyone
can also feel the love and faith that Jack has for his sister, and spread the
positive energy to many other children with additional needs in our society.”


 

  


Based
on each child’s needs, the CDC’s multidisciplinary team offers services such as
assessments, early intervention programmes, speech therapy, occupational
therapy, and targeted support programmes addressing social skills, sensory
processing, attention, behaviour, early literacy and numeracy, and more. The
CDC is also committed to supporting parents and professionals through
counselling services, outreach screening, and child development training.
