2010 Feb 28 - Increase awareness of Lung Health: A Marathon Race

Date: 28 Feb 2010

The Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon was held on 28th February 2010. This year also celebrated the Year of the Lung.

To promulgate the message that lung health is essential to breath and life, and to arouse the interests of public and health professionals in exercise and lung health, members of the Hong Kong Thoracic Society actively participated in the race. Amongst them, Dr Wong Ka Chun ran the ½ Marathon race and Dr. Ng Chun Kong participated in the 10Km Marathon run. They also met participants from the pharmaceutical sector in the meaningful event, where they had all successfully completed the race with satisfactory results.

Through the participation of the Marathon race, respiratory physicians wish to demonstrate the importance of lung health through regular exercise despite our busy daily work. Hopefully, more HKTS members can join this meaningful event in the coming years to promote such meaningful ideas and of course, your own health.
