“Fitness x Mentorship” Scheme: Progress and Recruitment

The “Fitness x Mentorship” Scheme of this academic year was launched in October last year and had lasted for almost one term.  The participating CUHK students partnered various members of the community to undergo basic training of dodgebee, orienteering or running for enjoyment of exercises.

When undertaking dodgebee, students had received elementary training of sign language to facilitate communication with their hearing-impaired partners during the activity.  On orienteering, students and the ethnic minority youth learnt map reading together and then collaborated to accomplish the orienteering assignments.  As for running, students had paid a visit to the supported hostel for the people with intellectual disabilities to acquaint with their buddies prior to the training sessions, during which the two groups of participants joined hands to complete the challenging tasks.  Moreover, seven of the students paired up with their running partners in the TWGHs “iRun” - The Hong Kong Jockey Club Special Marathon 2020 on the 12th of this month.  Please visit here for the event details.
