My Story

Having completed the previous HSBC Arctic Challenge (2018) and Himalayas Challenge (2019), I am extremely excited and grateful to be one of the 120 HSBC colleagues to take part in the Petra Dunes Challenge this year. In late Sep23, I will be joining a crew of guides and other HSBC colleagues to walk 100km over 5 days through the ancient city of Petra in Jordan – one of the new Seven Wonders of the World.

Petra was established over 2,000 years ago as the capital city of the Nabataean Kingdom and often referred to as the “Rose Red City”. The city is almost entirely carved from sandstone cliffs and canyons – as expert stonemasons back then carved intricate buildings, tunnels, temples, tombs and monuments directly on rock surfaces. (As exemplify by The Theater and Al-Khazneh shown below)

During the 5 days, the group of 120+ will be walking through desert rocks and sands, and we will be camping through the archaeological site along the journey. The trip will be self-funded by ourselves, and we will also be fundraising for Jordan River Foundation (As part of the programme requirement), and other charity(s) of our choices. As such, I have taken the liberty to also include Food Angel of Hong Kong as the charity of my choice, which the donation page is here.    

Finally, thank you for reading this and considering supporting this fundraising adventure. I look forward to seeing all of you after the challenge and sharing more in person. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions!
Food Angel is a food rescue and food assistance program launched in 2011 by Bo Charity Foundation with the mission of "Waste Not, Hunger Not, With Love" (“停止浪費 解決飢餓 以愛相連”).

The program rescues edible surplus food from different sectors of the food industry that would otherwise be disposed of as waste. Following strict food safety protocols, the rescued food items will be prepared as nutritious meals pack via centralized kitchens and distributed to serve the underprivileged communities in Hong Kong.

Currently, Food Angel rescues 45 tonnes of edible surplus food each week, producing over 20,000 nutritious meals and helps distribute over 11,000 other meals and food packs daily free of charge for people in need.

Food Angel is also one of HSBC partners for charity. You can read more about the partnership at the news release here:
