Chinachem Group is backing an initiative to raise funds for patients with spinal cord injuries. By taking the Lead Partner role, the Group has given support for a feat of extraordinary human determination on 9 January 2021 - wheelchair climber, Lai Chi-wai, will scale the Group’s landmark headquarters building, the 300-metre Nina Tower, by hauling himself up purely through his upper body strength. The Group will take the opportunity to mount fund-raising initiatives in support of Lai’s chosen charity, the University of Hong Kong’s “Get Up and Walk Campaign”.
The Group has pledged to make matching donations for all those received and the donation amount made by the Group could reach up to HK$3,000,000 in total. Join us to support this meaningful event!

About “Get Up and Walk Campaign”
The "Get up and Walk Campaign" is an HKU O&T initiative to support the recovery of spinal cord injury (SCI) patients through basic research, clinical services, rehabilitation programs, and community redevelopment projects. Through pilot programs supported by this campaign, the HKU O&T spinal cord rehabilitation team has performed Hong Kong's first 2 diaphragmatic pacemaker insertions and also conducted approximately 1000 sessions of exoskeleton training for paraplegics in Hong Kong. HKU O&T partners with Hospital Authority doctors, NGOs and charitable bodies in order to deliver services that optimise rehabilitation strategies and promote community reintegration for SCI patients in Hong Kong.
