同事支持火炬慈善跑 宣揚社會共融信念

一年一度的「特殊奧運執法人員火炬慈善跑」於四月二十八日在沙田運動場舉行,由保安局局長李家超主持開幕典禮,各支紀律部隊人員亦踴躍支持活動。

本署有逾170名同事及家人出席活動,一眾愛羣義工團團員亦到場支持一眾跑手。本署今年籌得逾十一萬元的善款,並獲大會頒發多個籌款獎項,表揚懲教人員熱心公益慈善。是次籌得的善款將用以推動智障人士體育發展、培訓,讓智障人士得到全面的體育訓練及參與海外比賽的機會,發展潛能。

大會亦安排了燃點「希望之火」儀式,象徵燃亮起大眾對智障人士的支持、鼓勵和關懷的心,宣揚彼此尊重、友愛及共融的信息。

今年適逢慈善跑30周年,每位完成慈善跑的人員均獲發紀念獎牌一枚,以感謝他們的參與和鼎力支持,可謂別具意義。

Correctional officers support charity run to promote social harmony

The annual Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics was held in Sha Tin Sports Ground on April 28. Officiated by the Secretary for Security Mr John LEE Ka-chiu, the event was given support by seven disciplined services.

More than 170 colleagues and their family members participated in the charity run, which was also supported by members of Oi Kwan Volunteer Group by giving cheering support to the runners. The Department helped raise over HK$110,000 and received several fundraiser awards, in recognition of the active participation of correctional officers in the philanthropic activity. The fund raised in the event would be used for supporting the sports development for persons with intellectual disability, and their participation in local sports training and oversea competitions.

The organiser of the activity also arranged an ignition of 「Flame of Hope」 ceremony to symbolise support, encouragement and care to persons with intellectual disability by the general public in hopes of conveying the positive message of mutual respect, love and social harmony.

On the 30th Anniversary of the charity run this year, each runner who had finished the run was given a medal as recognition of his/her participation and support.
