The same as last year, the Jumbo Orient Contracting Limited has been actively participating in community and voluntary services to facilitate sports and new healthy manners for charitable purposes. Even though the COVID-19 epidemic duration, we continue to encourage our staff to support these meaningful events. Apart from good health and stress reliever, the relevant donation can also help the society’s people with needs.
In the past months, the Jumbo Orient Contracting Limited participated in the Construction Industry Virtual Happy Run 2021 and the Old Master Q of Pok Oi 2021 which are held by the Construction Industry Council and the charity organization of Pok Oi respectively. Both are in the form of online runners. Apart from no venue restriction, participants can show their actual strength.
This year, we are 14 colleagues to participate in Virtual Happy Run, of which options are 10km, 3km, and parents-child races. In addition, participants need to install an Apps onto their smartphone and take a photo with participants themselves, their participating numbers, the relevant towels, and check-in location. All of the online information will completely be recorded. In order to increase the stimulation, the participants make a random draw at the check-in point to let luck guide participants’ whereabouts.
At the end, all participating colleagues successfully finished it. In addition, Ms. Yu Nga Ling participated in the 10 km race. In a short period of time, she finished 9 times of the 10 km section with persevering spirit and won the third place of 10 km individual competition of women’s senior group in the construction industry which results are encouraging.
Besides, appreciated the total 30 colleagues’ enthusiastic participation in the online running of the Old Master Q. Under the competition rule of 10 participants per team, 30 participants are divided into 3 teams in accordance with a fair principle of random forming which are named as the Jumbo Orient A, the Jumbo Orient B, and the Jumbo Orient C. All of the 3 teams finished 101 km to fulfill its requirement of the online running of the Old Master Q before the event completion.
Due to the online running of the Old Master Q without Apps download to record, the participants can freely run which is different from Virtual Happy Run with taking pictures. In addition, the running record of the Old Master Q is uploaded onto an online system every day. So that each team can know the other teams’ situations with health competition.
In order to achieve more donation funds to support the social services of Pok Oi, the Jumbo Orient Contracting Limited organizes the internal donation fund-raising to support the charitable activities. If the participating team reaches a certain number of kilometers, non-participating colleagues can donate to support the team members. In the meanwhile, a donation box is installed at our reception for other colleagues’ supporting the relevant charitable activities.
In relation to the 2 charitable activities, the donations have already been transferred to the Construction Industry Council and Pok Oi Hospital without administration fees. They are the “Construction Charity Fund”, the "Construction Charity Fund Integrated Service Centre" and the Pok Oi Hospital respectively for contributing to our society.
We enjoy the process of competitions and the most important is to encourage our colleagues to do more exercise. Even if some participating colleagues’ feet are injured, they insist on participation for better performances. Jumbo Orient B team ended up the runner-up but they should do according to their abilities. We achieve our intention that our participating colleagues do more exercise than usual. Once again appreciated all colleagues for their participation and support.
