On running and bowling, the partners of both groups of students were people with intellectual disabilities. They had learnt the techniques of the respective sports together, as well as joined hands to complete the challenging tasks and hit the target. The running team concluded their training in the form of a two-day-one-night camp held on the 6th and 7th of this month at the Lady MacLehose Holiday Village. Apart from running, students and their partners took part in trail orienteering and mass games, etc. At the end of the camp, both parties shared their feelings and expressed gratitude to each other.
As for hiking, students and the ethnic minority youth gathered to acquire basic mountaineering knowledge, explore a number of local hiking trails and enjoyed the beautiful landscape of the nature. As a token of appreciation, the ethnic minority youth invited students to try their traditional snacks at the final training session. They were also engaged in a dodgeball friendly match to learn from each other by exchanging skills.
The "Fitness x Mentorship" Scheme has come to an end for now. Riding on the principle of this scheme which is to associate "exercising" with "volunteering", the CUHK students involved have successfully developed a serving heart and an understanding of the community. The self-confidence and perseverance of all participants have also been bolstered.
