I'll be doing A 100km Andean Challenge trek to fundraise for MindHK

My Story

In March 2020, together with 99 other HSBC colleagues from around the world, I will be trekking 100km over 5 days through the Andean Mountains.  This trek will be physically and mentally demanding, as we trekked the mountains of Ecuador, culminating in a climb to more than 4,200m (13,780ft) above sea level to Mt Cotopaxi, one of the world’s most active volcanoes. During our trek, we will be camping at night and have limited access to things we take for granted: a nice bed, hot food, showers, toilets etc.

What makes this challenge interesting is that we can select mental health charities of our choice to support and raise fund. Collectively, we are aiming to raise $350,000 for mental health charities around the world.

Mental health can impacts any of us - whether personally and directly, or through our friends and family. Hong Kong holds a special place for me, and during this challenging time, I would like to show my support for HK by raising fund for MindHK (, as they have been doing great work on raising awareness on mental health, destigmatise mental illness and increase accessibility of support for those who need it

I’m proud to be taking on this challenge and appreciate any donations to support this cause. Every little helps!

*Note: The trek will be self-funded, so all the funds raised will be used solely to support the cause.
