登山善行的意義

1992年,一位勇敢的行山者成功締造壯舉,越過52座超過450米高的山峰,為善寧會籌款,此舉造就了善寧會一年一度的「登山善行」。「登山善行」籌款活動每年讓數以百計不同年齡且來自各行各業的人聚在一起,透過活動支持末期病者,以紀念逝去的摯親,並為善寧會籌募服務經費,支持善寧會為末期病者提供寧養紓緩照顧、為喪親家屬提供善別輔導服務、及透過不同的生死教育活動,倡議及教育公眾正面認識及討論死亡。

呼籲各位參與,向更多晚期病者送上溫暖

今年我們盼能籌得更多善款,支援新落成的「賽馬會善寧之家」籌得所需的運作經費,並讓更多有經濟需要的人士也能享用我們的服務。以下是「賽馬會善寧之家」服務使用者的一些故事分享,您一分一毫的支持,皆讓不少晚期病者在家人陪同下有尊嚴地走完人生寶貴的一程,也為晚期病者家庭帶來溫暖與安慰。

25th Anniversary Hike for Hospice

The 25th Anniversary Hike for Hospice has been completed successfully on Sunday, 26th February 2017 at Tai Lam Country Park, Yuen Long. Many thanks for your kindest support to this special anniversary event. Established 30 years ago, SPHC is proud to be a pioneer in promoting hospice care in Hong Kong. Throughout the years, we have been providing professional end-of-life-care training to caregivers and offering bereavement support to those who have lost their loved ones. Last year, we put to operation the establishment of Jockey Club Home for Hospice, a hospice centre that brings forth a new era in the provision of holistic care for life‐limiting illness patients adopting a family-oriented approach, walking with the families hand-in-hand through the difficult times.  As an independent charity organization, we are counting on your unfailing support help to raise the funds needed to enable terminal patients make the most of their remaining days with dignity and reduced suffering.

Event photos and Hikers’ finishing time have been posted on the “Hike for Hospice” website. I am sure it will bring back good memories running with friends on the scenic trails and relaxing over a curry lunch in the countryside.

Route Information

 (All routes are subject to change. Please visit this website for latest update)

Hike for Hospice 2017 will take Hikers along challenging routes to the south east of Tai Lam Chung Reservoir. The start and finish will be located at No.7 Barbecue Site in Tai Lam Country Park, near Tai Tong, south of Yuen Long. Hikers are advised to take our arranged transportation as the venue is not easy to find and parking spaces are limited.

Choice of routes (Team and Individual Categories)

Routes2

Participants of Team or Individual categories  will have a choice of three routes (The route is 14 km for Corporate Challenge and Alumni Challenge). The Short Route of 8 km (google map) is for casual and family hikers who like to linger along the way and take in the views. The Medium Route of 14 km (google map) has been devised for regular hikers who are comfortable with a three to four hour hike and a few inclines. The 22 km (google map) Long Route, with a number of steeper inclines, is for serious and competitive hikers who enjoy a challenge.

Introduction of the 3 routes

Three routes share the same initial section down to the head of Tai Lam Chung Reservoir. On reaching the Check Point 1, hikers of Short Route take left towards the Finish, while the Medium and Long Routes take right to the Kat Hing Bridge and continue eastward.

The Medium Route turns back toward the finish along the northern part of Yuen Tun Country Trail to the left, while the Long Route continues to the east to pass close to Sheung Tong before heading back.

All three routes have a common section back from the head of the Tai Lam Chung Reservoir, which leads up an attractive valley before heading over hills to descend to the finish, where the traditional Curry Lunch will be ready to reward hikers’ well earned appetites.
