Free from the Trap 

Due to the outbreak of Coronavirus, all social activities and programs are suspended. Through phone contacts and consolation, we found that people were afraid to go outside due to the worry of community infection. They were trapped at home, physical & mental health were deteriorating. How can we breakthrough the physical distance and relieve from difficulties and boredom?  

A quarter past 3 - Sport Online

We started up a Facebook LIVE online channel to promote physical exercise at home. The channel is very successful that the golden-aged love to join. The sports coaches and social workers collaborate together, leading stretching and muscle trainings 2 days a week through live webcasts. In such digital channel, they can interact with coaches and other playmates directly, building up a sense of belonging as a group of exercise lovers, and thus, develop the habit of regular exercise at home.  Social networks are reconnected. It’s so amazing!


Startup 150 - Continuous exercise is a way

To keep healthy in the coronavirus pandemic, people realize that enhance immunity is more important than wearing masks. According to WHO guidelines, exercising 150 minutes a week can reduce the average risk of death by 31%. Everyone actually know that exercise is a “good medicine”, but their motivation to start is short. Even their physical functions are declining, their exercise habits are weak. It’s because they lack professional guidance, health care awareness and sports space.     

With the support of the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, the “Jockey Club Place for Healthy Ageing – Healthy Union” project was launched by Evangelical Lutheran Church Social Service in October 2019.  By making good use of the idled space, regular exercise classes and varies activities are organised for the aged over 50 in a youth integrated centre and a church at daytime. The Healthy Union Hotspots are located in Tai Po, Tai Wo and Sham Shui Po respectively. And we aim at building up a healthy lifestyle and developing regular exercise habits.

What is “Startup 150”?  We encourage participants to commit 150 minutes every week, that is to do 75 minutes stretching exercises with coach guidance and to finish another 75 minutes muscle exercises with video instruction. Gratefully, we collaborate with Hong Kong Baptist University to tailor-made muscle training videos for the Golden-Aged also.

Keep Online Networking - exploring new service model

Actual courses and activities will soon be back as the epidemic settled. However, we can foresee the future changes of communication and life patterns due varies uncertainties that are caused by either epidemic or social unrest. New service model must be prepared. So, we would continue the Facebook LIVE Sport Online every Friday morning. Interactive dialogues will be encouraged and movement demonstrations will be conducted with themes.  Let’s join our Sport Online! Don’t miss the joyful moment!
