Five brave members of #TeamISG in Hong Kong completed 472 laps of a running track, totalling a distance of 188.8 km, in five hours as they sought to raise money for charity.
The team was participating in the ‘Lap Dog Challenge’ for The Lighthouse Club Hong Kong Benevolent Fund on Saturday 3 November.
Participating for the third year in a row, ISG’s five-strong team was joined by 44 runners from nine industry-leading companies, including Gammon, WT Partnership, Leighton and Pinsent Masons, to complete as many laps of the 400-metre running track as possible in five hours.
The challenge is an annual fundraising event hosted by a global property and construction company, WT Partnership.
All efforts and funds raised were dedicated to support The Lighthouse Club Hong Kong Benevolent Fund, a registered charity that helps construction workers and their families who need financial assistance.
ISG completed an impressive total of 472 laps and combined distance of 188.8km, raising vital funds towards the total HK$1.2m raised for the initiative in the process.
Managing director of ISG in Hong Kong, Tim Threlkeld, said: “The fundraising event was a great success, with the completion of 498 more laps compared to last year’s total.
“It was such a fantastic achievement for everyone involved and we are really proud to be a part of such a meaningful cause.
“We would also like to thank all of the sponsors for their donations - with their generous support, we can make an immediate difference in the lives of people who need them within our industry.”
