“Football for All” – Charity Fundraiser and Equity in Sport

By December 7, 2015Personal Projects

For his MYP Personal Project, grade 10 student Chester Chan organized and hosted a student led “Football for All” charity fundraiser on October 1st, 2015 to support “InspiringHK Sports Foundation”. A total of 60 players (all ages) from CDNIS, and underprivileged children and youth from Hong Kong participated.

The event raised funds to support InspiringHK Sports Foundation to establish and promote equality for the underprivileged youths in Hong Kong through sports to improve their social mobility. From the bright smiles, hearty laughter, and jolly faces of everyone, it was no doubt that everyone had an extremely enjoyable time. The outcome led to a positive vibe and all participants were able to develop new bonds, connections, and relationships through the enjoyment of sports. The event offered a new experience for participants and allowed the students of CDNIS to have a deeper understanding about inequality in Hong Kong society.

Please read Chester Chan’s reflection on his experience here and how he thinks this Personal Project connects to the CDNIS Service Learning Pledge.
