Meet Don Taylor, the Face of Courage!
On Nov 24, he will take up a huge challenge - to abseil from 1000ft at the iconic One Island East.
HK Vertical 1000 is not just a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to step out of their comfort zone, but also the chance to fundraise for a local charity - Outward Bound Hong Kong and its work to #FutureProofYOUth.
Listen to his story:
At Swire Properties, we are thrilled to support this meaningful event by bringing it back to One Island East in Taikoo Place. It's a fantastic opportunity to raise money for Outward Bound Hong Kong whilst providing a unique experience for our tenants – special thanks to them for their courage, which is admirable, and for giving their time and effort to make this event possible.
I still feel very excited, if not a tad apprehensive, about my upcoming abseil. This will be my second time doing it and for me, the 2017 abseiling experience was such an adrenaline rush, gliding right outside my office.
Please join me for a great cause, and I look forward to seeing many of your faces through the window!
