As an extra bonus, proceeds from activities at the Street Fair will be donated to Operation Santa Claus!

Where: Starstreet Precinct, Wanchai

To celebrate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (Saturday 3 December), Hong Kong Charity, CareER is teaming up with AIA MPF to hold their first ever fundraising walkathon! The aim of the walkathon is to raise awareness about people with different abilities, and remove some of the stigmas in Hong Kong by celebrating all abilities! There will be simulation activities (like braille and lip-reading) encouraging participants to consider aspects they may take for granted on a daily basis. Plus, we even hear a little rumour that guide dogs will be there on the day. Register here!
When: Saturday, 3 December
