Team SMBC Aviation Capital Hong Kong- 3 Peaks Challenge

Martin McCoy / Fundraise for RUN

In support of RUN Hong Kong, a team of 4 from SMBC Aviation Capital Hong Kong (Martin McCoy, Kevin Johnston, Brian McArdle, and Nicolas Clouet) is taking on a challenge of climbing the three highest peaks of the three largest landmasses in Hong Kong in a day: New Territories (Tai Mo Shan @ 957m), Lantau Island (Lantau Peak @ 934m) and Hong Kong Island (Victoria Peak (@ 552m). For our Irish colleagues, friends and family, to put this in context, it’s roughly the same distance and elevation as climbing the highest mountain in Ireland (Carrauntoohil) three times back-to-back.

About Team SMBC Aviation Capital Hong Kong- 3 Peaks Challenge

RUN is a local Hong Kong based charity that focuses on the most vulnerable refugees in Hong Kong, particularly women, offering them the opportunity to rehabilitate and recuperate through running and other sports. 

Refugees in Hong Kong are only provided with HK$1,200 (c. €142) per month for food allowance and HK$1,500 (€178) per month for rent which, in a city with living costs as high as Hong Kong, unfortunately doesn’t travel too far. This limited support is exacerbated by the fact that refugees are not afforded the right to work in Hong Kong. As most of the refugees have fled war torn parts of the world, the outbreak of initially the anti-government protests and subsequently the Covid-19 pandemic has led to a sharp increase in PTSD amongst refugees in Hong Kong. In extreme cases this has required some volunteers to provide around the clock care and counselling services to the most at risk refugees. 

In addition, RUN also provides a comprehensive relocation and rehabilitation service whereby refugees are given the opportunity to settle in other countries, mainly Canada, where they have greater rights, such as the right to gain employment and make a living. On a more basic level, this increase in PTSD has also led to a general reluctance of refugees to travel outside of their homes out of fear which has restricted their ability to access basic requirements such as food. As a result of this, RUN has had to increase their spending levels to both provide the food and also provide delivery services to the refugees. 

Our fundraising target of €5,000 (c.HK$42,000) will provide RUN with the financial resources it requires to meet the needs of some of the most vulnerable individuals in Hong Kong. Additionally, SMBC Aviation Capital has agreed to provide a generous matched funding donation should we meet our fundraising target.

With your help a real difference can be made to those most in need in Hong Kong. 


Thank you for your support, 
Martin, Nicolas, Brian, and Kevin
