The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Brain Tumour Centre’s fifth charity walkathon “Brain Trekking 2012” will be held on Saturday, 10 March in Hong Kong. It will commence at 9am and it is a 3.5 km walk that follows Lugard and Harlech Road starting from and finishing at the Peak Galleria. More than 250 participants are expected.

Brain Trekking is the Hong Kong chapter of a global awareness program, “Walk around the world for brain tumours”, organised by the International Brain Tumour Alliance (IBTA). The aim of the walk is to raise public awareness of and support for brain tumour patients in the community. The total mileage of worldwide supporters will be accumulated with the goal to circling the world 5 times. Last year, over 300 walkers participated in the event including patients and their families. Together, we raised 1,150km in Hong Kong

In addition to walking, we ask all HK Brain Trekkers to get sponsorship for their participation. Donation purposes include research study, funding to Otto’s clinic, improvement program in patient care and training in young medical staffs. All are welcome and hope all of you continue to support this meaningful awareness event.
