Dinosaur Charity Run 2023 Roar Back into Action! YCCECE welcomed 200 Dinosaurs!
On 26th November, a group of “little dinosaurs” ran into the Tin Wan Campus to participate in “Dinosaur Charity Run 2023”! The event surpassed all expectations, providing nearly 100 families with an enthralling array of dino-themed educational activities and games. Participants unleashed their inner dinosaur and enjoyed running obstacle courses tailored for kids and parents. ROAR!!!
Professor Allan Yuen, President of YCCECE emphasized the significance of diverse games and activities. He underscored their pivotal role in enhancing children's cognitive development, while simultaneously kindling their boundless creativity and imagination. By engaging in a wide range of experiences, children are equipped with the tools to navigate the complexities of the world and unleash their full potential. The dinosaur maze with interactive features stimulated the children to learn through their senses. At the 'Readosaurous' Readathon library, our teachers and students read dinosaur stories and interacted with the children during storytelling. A unique highlight was the open-top bus tour that took the dinosaur participants on a guided sightseeing adventure, learning about dinosaur history while roaring around the city. Children further unleashed their energy at different dinosaur play zones at Pamela Peck Discovery Space. There are also educational booths that explores themes of STEM and carbon footprint and many more games.
The event delivered an exciting lineup of educational activities and games that delighted both children and parents alike, all while raising important funds for early childhood educators. All funds raised by individual participation packages and corporate sponsorships went towards empowering the Yew Chung Promise. Our generous donors also sponsored complimentary packages for families in need to join our delightful event.
Ms Winnie Ho, Director of Institutional Advancement & Marketing, said “Through our collective efforts, we have successfully raised nearly half a million dollars, which will be going towards addressing the crucial scholarship and bursary needs of our students. Once again, we express our deepest gratitude for the unwavering generosity and steadfast commitment of our participants, individual donors, and corporate sponsors to our cause.”
