Why we run with “CAN”
The idea of “CAN RUN” originated from the food banks on the island at Zheng Sheng College where “CAN food” is required to feed their students and staff under extreme weather conditions, when no public transportation is available to replenish their food supply. The word “CAN” represents both “CAN” food as well as Trailblazer’s belief that everybody “CAN” RUN!
Following last year’s zealous CAN RUN 2019 to support Christian Zheng Sheng College, let us join hands again this year to build a “can hill” with love and power!
基督教正生書院校舍位置偏遠，因惡劣天氣、交通不便有機會導致“斷水斷糧”，罐頭“食物銀行”能夠緩衝應付全校師生及職員在極端情況下的膳食需要。所以，“CAN RUN” 越野山跑賽其一意思為正生書院籌罐頭，其二是 Trailblazer 正面鼓勵 “人人能跑” 的信念。
2020年希望延續大家對 CAN RUN 的熱情和對受惠團體基督教正生書院的支持 — 今年座 “罐頭山” 點少得你/妳嗰罐！
CAN RUN 2020 Foreword
The 2020 we are experiencing is very different from what we all imagined. CAN RUN is in its third year, with plans for a newly designed 21km route, participating organisations, VIP list, “siu mai”, fish ball at refreshment stations, and many other intricacies. Our plans, however, could not keep up with the rapid changes and uncontrollable circumstances, leading to great uncertainty about whether or not the event can be smoothly held. We realised after careful consideration that since we’re all adapting to a new normal, we might as well shake things up and think out of the box, with the same ambition, but with even greater strength, extent, and passion.
As before, the beneficiary of CAN RUN is Christian Zheng Sheng College. Aside from meeting our canned food donation targets, it is also important to raise funds for the Christian Zheng Sheng Association’s daily functioning.
As such, while CAN RUN 2020 continues to uphold the twofold “CAN” spirit, in order to increase your interest and commitment, we have added two new awards. The “Highest fundraiser” award, to recognise exemplary fundraising efforts, and “The Most Influential Person” award, to award those who through their powerful influence encourage more people to support Zheng Sheng and join CAN RUN.
CAN RUN 2020 前言
因此，CAN RUN 2020繼續秉承2大 “CAN”精神之餘，為加強大家的投入程度，增設2個新獎項，包括「最具人氣善長人翁」獎和「最具影響力」獎，前者是今年特別加入為參加者打氣的贊助方案，鼓勵籌得最高款項的參加者，後者即考你/妳“牙力”借助個人影響力，令更多人支持正生、參加CAN RUN，成為最多人因你/妳推動而參加CAN RUN的能力者。
