About the race

The Discovery Bay 10km Run for Charity was first started in 2004 –  and it has since grown to become one of DB’s favorite annual events. Each year, hundreds of runners race through a picturesque route in the Lantau neighborhood to raise money for charity. The 2018 beneficiary was ImpactHK, an association dedicated to helping the homeless in Hong Kong.

About the beneficiary

ImpactHK believes in the importance of kindness in addressing some of the most pressing issues in our community.

They started their journey with the simple aim of doing one act of kindness per month for the homeless in Hong Kong. Since their humble beginnings in 2015, many volunteers have joined them in their journey to support the less fortunate in a meaningful and measurable way. Together, they have evolved into a powerful humanitarian movement with the opportunity to make a positive impact on the plight of the homeless in Hong Kong.
