We are raising money for The WEEZ Project and KELY - supporting youth mental wellbeing and awareness in Hong Kong. Mark used to run the Soccer 9s to raise money for these guys, but with Covid - its not been possible for the last couple of years - so we are hoping to make up for it through this 62km walk around Hong Kong. We aim to do it in one (long) day!

My Story

Three San Ps (Arby, Charlie and Mark - also a Colloid!) have decided to walk 62km ( (we might run the down hill bits!) around Hong Kong island to raise funds for a great charity KELY Support Group and their partner the WEEZ Project - supporting youth mental health and wellbeing - something that is not discussed enough in Hong Kong. The cultural and social stigma around mental health is a huge issue - 
  • 71% survey respondents were unwilling to live with mental health sufferers, with 1 in 3 even willing to end friendships with those diagnosed with mental illness 
  • More than half believe they will be penalized at work for talking about their mental health challenges
  • 51.5% of secondary school pupils now show symptoms of depression.
  • Youth suicide rate (aged 10-19) more than doubled from 2014-2017.
KELY Support Group ( 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. KELY envision a world where young people are empowered to reach their full potential. KELY collaborate with schools and other partners to offer programmes to Chinese- and English-speaking youth between the ages of 14 and 24 around three core focus areas: Drug and Alcohol Awareness, Mental Health & Wellbeing, and Positive Youth Development. 

The Weez Project was set up in memory of Jamie Bruno. Weez are a community group that is working to increase awareness of youth mental health issues and campaigning to prevent youth suicide.
Weez's Vision is for there to be zero youth suicides in Hong Kong. Weez is there to support young people in Hong Kong who are facing mental health challenges, especially those who are contemplating self-harm or suicide.
