Wellness Challenge: 8-hour Charity Spin
As part of Discover Taikoo Place, the corporate challenge brings 20 companies in Taikoo Place together to keep our spin bikes in continuous motion for 8 hours. The winning team will be recognised in two categories: Overall Distance Completed and the Highest Fundraising Team. Donations will be made to Mind HK to raise awareness and understanding of mental health in Hong Kong. Let’s work together to show mental health matters and to ensure no one has to face a mental health problem alone.
How it works
Each of the 20 teams will have a designated, branded area with the company or team logo. All participants from the same team will ride the same bike, taking turns to ride and rest. As the teams compete, our wellness partners including Pure Fitness, Joint Dynamics, H-Kore and Bupa will provide expert advice, stretching exercise, massage, muscle strength test and physiotherapy. DJs will be playing throughout the 8 hours to keep all riders in good spirit.
Our catering partners including Nood Food, SaladStop! and Invisible Kitchen will provide refreshments to the participating teams throughout the event.

About Mind HK
Mind Hong Kong (Mind HK), a mental health initiative, ensures everyone in Hong Kong living with a mental health problem has the recognition, support and respect they need to make the best recovery possible. Through collaborations, innovation, and training, it facilitates the work of all those involved in improving mental health in Hong Kong.
1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem in our lifetime. Mind HK's key mission is to destigmatise mental health and improve attitudes and awareness to make sure everyone experiencing a mental health challenge has access to the available services and resources in Hong Kong. To foster improvements in understanding, comprehensive, informational resources on a range of mental health topics and a service directory are available in English and Traditional Chinese on its website (www.mind.org.hk). Alongside this, a team of clinical professionals regularly deliver evidence-based training programmes, including Mental Health First Aid, to the public, companies, non-profits and schools. Mind HK carries out and shares research internationally, and regularly holds expert talks and campaigns with local and international non-profit organisations - all of which are in sight of breaking the stigma around mental health in Hong Kong.
