Welcome to the third annual Junior Soccer Virtual Run and Hike Challenge called Loop the Island, organised by Hong Kong Football Club in partnership with KELY Support Group. During the time we are living through, we know that there is nothing more important than keeping active to help our physical and mental health and Loop the Island is designed to do exactly that. From 14 January to 19 February, we’re looking to see how many kilometres the Junior Soccer family (players, players’ families, coaches, friends and anyone else!) can accumulate and hence how many times we can virtually circumnavigate the approximately 62KM Hong Kong Island coastal path.We’re using SimplyGiving to fundraise to support two organisations focused on the mental health of Hong Kong children and youth: KELY Support Group and The WeezProject. Good luck and look forward to seeing your kilometres come through! Let's loop the island together.

Hi Everyone! My name is Milan Dandwani and I am a student in the UK, I have grown up in Hong Kong my whole life and as a teenager, have experienced what it's like to grow up amongst challenges regarding mental health. Mental Health amongst the youth has always been an important topic for me and remains precedent globally. Since last month was Mental Health Awareness Month was in May, a lot of light had been shed across social media regarding younger students sharing their experiences and struggles coping with issues such as anxiety, loneliness and depression. Viewing how individuals had the power to overcome these aspects of the steps they are taking to improve their mental health helped me as well. The Weez Project is an excellent group that was set up by Jamie Bruno's family in memory of him. The community group constantly strives to heighten awareness of youth mental health issues and involves themselves in campaigning to prevent youth suicide. They collaborate with communities such as the KELY Support group and raise funds for specialist youth and mental health organisations that have the expertise to deliver practical, relevant programmes and information for Hong Kong’s youth and to provide accessible, expert resources to help young people and the adults around them. Amongst our school community, Jamie was kind, creative and talented and is loved by all of his friends. I attended High School with Jamie in West Island and was in a few of his classes, though I didn’t know him very well I was lucky enough to have a few conversations with him from time to time. It is so important to be able to understand the struggles that anyone ever goes through to ensure that they don't experience feeling overwhelmed by such harmful emotions.  Doing this run is important to me as it’s helped me with my own mental health in many ways - so being able to contribute to a worthy cause such as this would be absolutely amazing. I will be running a marathon for The Weez Project in London to raise funds to ensure that individuals across Hong Kong are equipped with the support that they need to set them forward to a happier and healthier life that they can share with their families and friends. If you are able to donate in any way or to even spread awareness about this cause - it would mean so much to us. To find out more about The Weez Project, please visit the link below! :)https://weezproject.com/about-us/

A really good charity and worthwhile cause that hopes to increase awareness of youth mental health issues and campaigning to prevent suicide.  KELY Support Group (KELY) is a Hong Kong-based nonprofit organisation whose mission since 1991 is to equip young people with the skills, knowledge, and opportunities needed to support themselves and each other.As a school teacher in HK the pressures and expectations imposed on students is immense and more often than not we forget to equip these students with the very basic skills needed to be self aware of their own wellbeing and mental health issues. With todays current social situation, affects of wellbeing has hit us all in someway or another. Most of us are however are well equipped to deal with this (just about) many are not. Raising awareness for those that struggle (particularly of a younger age) and need that extra helping hand is surely a cause worth supporting.

Later this month, I will be taking on a challenge to jog/ walk/ stumble c60KM to complete the whole loop of the coastal path around Hong Kong island to raise funds for a very important cause. Mental health in Hong Kong has a long history of negative connotation and stigma, experiencing a lack of support and resources. The situation has, in many ways, been worsened by the current pandemic, where the challenges we are all facing are exacerbating mental health issues.  The event, Loop the Island will raise funds for The Kely Support Group. Kely does amazing work to improve the mental well being of Hong Kong’s young people, often in partnership with the other organization involved in Loop the Island, the Weez Project. The Weez Project was set up by a friend of mine who sadly lost his son to suicide a few years ago and is now working tirelessly to raise awareness of and advocate for greater support for the prevention of the unfortunately growing problem of youth suicide in Hong Kong.

Jamie Bruno was a young man who played football at HKFC in Chris' Junior Soccer squad alongside Jasper, and we have great memories of touring to Cambodia a couple of times with Jamie and his Dad. Jamie had everything to live for and was full of potential so it was with incredible sadness that he took his own life at such a young age. As Chris and Luca embark upon the Green Power hike for a third time <http://www.greenpower.org.hk/hike/eng/> and Gill, Liz and Jasper take it on for the first time, we would like to support The Weez Project, a cause set up by Jamie's parents to raise funds for Kely Support Group, to help support other youths before they reach crisis point. Although The Weez Project has its own SimplyGiving page, please donate through this Team Green Power page and we will ensure The Weez Project is appropriately recognized.

I'm honoured to represent an organisation that truly believes in young people's unlimited potential. Do join me in walking alongside KELY and supporting many more youth in the next 25 years!I've been leading KELY Support Group (kely.org) with much enthusiasm and although I'm inspired by the at risk youth that we work with, I haven't been inspired to be personally motivated to stay healthy. With this fundraiser, I have decided to make myself go outside and get some exercise for the month of September.I'd like to personally be motivated to stay healthy!! So for every HKD2000 I raise, I will put on running shoes and run 5km! I hope to run a total of 25km this month - would you support me in this?  If you want to view other fundraisers’ videos, click https://www.simplygiving.com/event/25for25 我很榮幸能代表啟勵-- 一個深信青年擁有無限潛能的機構。未來的25年,就讓我們一同伴隨啟勵同行,繼續以溫暖的心啟發青年吧! 這些年,我一直盛載熱誠,帶領啟勵扶青會(kely.org)邁步向前。在服務青年的過程中,我不時受到高危青年啟發,愈做愈好;可是,我卻一直沒有激發自己注重健康。隨着展開是次籌款活動,我決定讓9月過得更為充實──我打算走到外面,做更多運動。 為了激發自己注重健康,我決定每籌得港幣2000元,就會穿起球鞋一次,振奮地奔跑5公里。今個月,我希望能夠跑出25公里。您們會支持我嗎?如欲瀏覽其他募捐者的影片,請點擊以下鏈接: https://www.simplygiving.com/event/25for25
