Meet Ivy Cheung Hiu Yin from CHUBB, the Face of Courage!
On Nov 24, she 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 her story:
Dear Fundraising Supporters,
I am excited to share with you the moment of participating in abseiling activities for fundraising.
The core motivation behind my decision is the deep belief I have in the power of adventure and personal growth. By pushing myself beyond my comfort zone and engaging in thrilling activities like abseiling, I am not only raising funds for a worthy cause but also challenging my own limits and discovering new strengths within myself. This experience will not only be physically demanding but also mentally and emotionally rewarding, as it will help me develop resilience, determination, and a sense of accomplishment.
