賽事簡介
「愛心力量」於1998年成立,是一個已經註冊並獲香港稅務局認可的慈善團體。我們的宗旨是關愛及扶助弱勢社群,服務對象包括長者、貧困家庭、兒童及長期病患者。「愛心力量」並沒有得到特區政府或香港公益金的撥款資助,全賴各有心人士捐助。2009年起,本會開展關顧香港腎衰竭患者。

Introduction
Power of Love (“POL”) was founded in 1998, which is recognized by Inland Revenue Department as a charitable organization. Our mission is to support the disadvantaged, including the elderly, poor families and children, as well as patients suffering from chronic illnesses. “POL” does not receive any financial subsidies from the Hong Kong SAR Government, or from the Hong Kong Community Chest. We rely on donations from enthusiastic individuals and organizations. Starting from 2009, we further address our concerns on the renal failure patients in Hong Kong.

賽事目的
腎病是香港常見的疾病之一,在疾病死亡率中排行第七位。現本港約有6,000多名末期腎衰竭病患者需接受洗腎服務。當中80%,每日需接受腹膜透析(即洗肚)三、四次,每次一至兩小時;其餘的20%,只可每星期使用洗血服務。但更可怕的數字顯示,腎病患者正以每年約1,000個新病例速度增加。望藉這次長跑活動,令更多人關注健康,關注社會上的弱勢社群及腎衰竭患者。故舉行這次長跑目的有兩個重點:第一是透過長跑這個有意義的運動,鼓勵更多健全的人重視運動及健康;第二是透過長跑過程中的意義,以支持及激勵長期病患者,要有堅定的意志及決心,去面對人生中向前的每一步。

Objectives
Renal disease, often known as one of the most common diseases in Hong Kong, ranked the seventh highest mortality rate. Currently, about 6,000 patients with end-stage renal failure in Hong Kong require dialysis treatment. 80% of those receive Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD) treatment 3 to 4 times a day, lasting between 1 and 2 hours for each session, while another 20% use Haemodialysis (HD) treatment. Shocking figures reveal the number of people suffering from renal failure increases by approximately 1,000 cases every year. As such, we would like to organize a race event to raise public awareness about the health and about caring for the disadvantaged as well as patients with end-stage renal failure. Two objectives of this event are: 1) to promote the importance of regular exercise and healthcare to the general public; and 2) to encourage the people with chronic diseases to have strong belief in building a brighter future.
