The Police College and a social enterprise, RunOurCity, organised a fun run for 55 youth runners at the Aberdeen campus on October 27. The event was aimed at inspiring teenagers to develop a "can-do" attitude through running.
Under the guidance of more than 50 staff members and trainees of the School of Foundation Training (SFT), the youth runners received circuit training and interval running. They also took part in a long run outside the campus. The staff and trainees spoke about police work to the youth runners and stressed the importance of teamwork, alertness and determination.
Meanwhile, Senior Superintendent of SFT Lee Chung-wah also attended the event and shared his inspiration as a police officer, highlighting the virtues of resilience, optimism and commitment. He encouraged the young people to apply these virtures to running.
The youth runners enjoyed the event, adding that it had enriched their understanding of the Police. Both Mr Lee and Chief Executive Officer of RunOurCity Dr Andes Leung look forward to organising similar meaningful events in the near future.
