The Salvation Army Orienteering is rescheduled on 22 February 2020. With a brand new 2-hour game course at the Southern District, we will kick off at Aberdeen Promenade. This year, a new category is also introduced – Let’s Chill Experiential. Th no ranking category aims to promote the fun of night city orienteering. (Let’s Chill Experiential only applicable through enrolment form, but NOT online platform.)
=======================================================

Hong Kong, a city where we were born and bred.

This year, The Salvation Army Orienteering will allow you to explore the hidden side of the Southern district. With the light of the headtorch, we will shine through the dark and help the community in need.

The Salvation Army has been serving the children with special educational needs (SEN) and their families. The donation from the event will be used to support the identified SEN children to receive the needed professional training and treatment; and proper SEN assessment for those from low income families. Early intervention to provide timely and appropriate support for the SEN children and their parents can significantly improve their skills, self-care abilities and control.

Light up a life. Join and help the SEN children and their families.
