Each year, hundreds of participants from accountancy firms, multinational companies, corporations, and institutions came together for the exciting rickshaw race. To promote corporate volunteerism, UAT always encourages employees to actively participate in voluntary services in building a cohesive community together through helping the needy.
With this year's event theme 'We are the World', UAT is dedicated to spreading the message of love and care for the needy with stakeholders. The proceeds raised this year will go forwards the programmes targeting various social vulnerable groups organized by three beneficiary organizations including Enlightened Hong Kong Limited, Harmony House Limited, and Jubilee Ministries.
