A month ago I volunteered for this unique opportunity to join 100 people for a five-day expedition across the Great Wall of China. Now with three weeks of intense training completed and only one week to go, I am both excited and terrified at the same time and kindly request your support! I thought this would be a great experience to visit mainland China for the first time, gain a greater appreciation of the historical and cultural significance of the Silk Road, improve my fitness, meet lots of new people and have some of my friends and colleagues support me in raising funds for charity. I have never been on a hike before and since moving to Hong Kong earlier this year, it seems to be the popular outdoor activity on the weekends. So I thought... why not give it a go and challenge myself not just to hike the Peak in HK (which was my original goal for 2018 - and has now become part of my weekly training plan), but to accomplish trekking the Great Wall of China, following tumbling and twisting paths along remote, unrestored sections whilst vigorously climbing over 10,000 relentless steps and covering over 50kms during the first week of May. All proceeds raised by me and my colleagues in Hong Kong will be donated to our long-standing charity partner Project WeCan, a Business-in-Community initiative aiming to provide disadvantaged secondary school students in China with additional resources and care to empower them for pursuing higher education and future careers. Donation receipts will be issued for HK$100 or above, which is tax-deductible. I think this is a great initiative to support and hope you feel the same!

Those who know me, know I like a challenge but 5 days of trekking on remote parts of the Great Wall will be a big test with some of the days lasting up to 8 hours! I also have to get up early every morning and we all know how difficult I find that! Please see the story below and make a donation if you can. Thank you in advance! KalanOn April 29 – May 05 2018, myself and 99 others from HSBC and KPMG in Asia will take on five long gruelling days of trekking across the Great Wall of China.  We will be covering hundreds of thousands of steps across some of the most remote parts of the Great Wall of China. The purpose of this trip is to raise a significant amount of money for those less fortunate than ourselves. The trip is self-funded and all donations received will go directly to charity.   I have set a target of HKD5,000 for our long-standing HK charity partner Project WeCan, a Business-in-Community initiative aiming to provide disadvantaged secondary school students with additional resources and care to empower them for pursuing higher education and future careers. Please sponsor me on this mental and physical challenge! Link here – https://www.simplygiving.com/Event/GreatWallChallenge2018

I’m at it again, responding to the call of the wild in the name of charity. This time, I’ll be joining 50 colleagues from KPMG and 50 former colleagues from HSBC to trek over some of the hardest, most unforgiving sections of the Great Wall of China over five days in May. This may not be as hot as the Sahara or as cold as the Gobi, but I am assured it will be hard, hard, hard. Climbing steps made for horses, negotiating crumbling sections of wall, going up and down more than on Hong Kong’s Maclehose Trail, and dealing with a host of other discomforts.Far more importantly, all this is to help underprivileged children in Hong Kong gain a valuable education so they can have a fighting chance at growing in a harsh, unforgiving capitalist society.Every dollar you donate will help a child with their journey through life, so please, please give generously.

A few months ago, I volunteered to be part of the Great Wall Trek to raise money for underprivileged children. I have never been on a hike for longer then 3 hours and we will soon be embarking on some unexplored trail on the Great Wall spanning over 50km over 5 days. I have been told this is not for the faint hearted. I tried to make as many excuses about my fitness to get out of this, but here I am. No excuses, I am doing it.A once in a lifetime opportunity to take on this challenge and what a better way to do this with a 100 other challengers all for a good cause. Please sponsor me as part of this fantastic initiative and for a charitable cause.I hope I make it back in one piece!

I am given the unique opportunity to do a 5-day hike with 100 people. At the same time I know that this is a privilege that many people do not get. We are combining the trek with a fundraising. All proceeds raised by me and my 49 colleagues in Hong Kong will be donated to our long-standing charity partner Project WeCan, a Business-in-Community initiative aiming to provide disadvantaged secondary school students with additional resources and care to empower them for pursuing higher education and future careers. I think this is a great initiative to support and hope you feel the same!

I will be spending 5 days hiking along the Great Wall. There are lot of stops, not all if good condition, and lots of up and down. Whilst I am sure it's going to be amazing to see and I am really looking forward to it, I fear my knees may not be so much :-) there will be pain.Please support me in raising money for Project WeCan which supports disadvantages students reach their potential and have access to oppertunities which may of us can too easily take for granted.

When I was first asked, I jumped at the chance to raise money for Project WeCan - a local initiative to provide education for underprivileged students - by Hiking the Great Wall of China. An awesome opportunity for an excellent cause. Now some while later, I look down at my office-bod and think this might be harder than I first thought... So your donations would be massively appreciated to keep me motivated and digging in, every bit of them goes to the charity as everything else is self-funded.  I will keep people updated and make sure to send photos along the way - thanks everyone.Thanks, Seb

As most people who know me would say, I am an energetic, athletic, health conscious, gym going, body toned, triathlon running individual that is always up for a new challenge.  With this in mind, I would ask you to realise that to get me doing something like this has taken buckets of persuasion and a smidgeon of guilt to sign up.  But when you consider the charities which we are fundraising for and the important work they do with the children in Hong Kong and sponsoring education amongst those you cannot afford it - how could I say no.I have been very lucky with supportive parents during my informative years, and if we can help those that will be us in the future - I am behind it."If your plan is for one year - plant rice, if your plan is for 10 years - plant trees, if your plan is for 100 years - educate children" - ConfuciousJoin me and lets help our future succeed! (and ofcourse cause me a little pain!!)

I think that most people know I'm not particularly outdoorsy but I'm doing this as I want to fundraise for charity. I also think it's good / necessary to 'challenge' yourself and it's a 'great (wall) challenge'. Not often that I'm to be found outdoors so if you can spare any change - it would be much appreciated.Photos etc. go up every so often. IG #GWCtraining #GWC
