InspiringHK Sports Foundation Encourages Students and Parents to Keep Exercising to Stay Healthy
In the hope of fostering daily exercising habits amongst the youth in Hong Kong, IHKSports, funded by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust COVID-19 Emergency Fund, has been uploading exercise videos onto Facebook, Instagram and YouTube daily since the suspension of classes for primary and secondary school children. By following simple routines suggested in our tutorial videos on a regular basis, students are expected to remain physically active to prevent diseases.
Cultivating Students' Interest in Exercise through Distance Learning
Over 16 ambassadors and local athletes were invited to support the initiative by taking part in the content planning of all of the videos. English voiceovers of the videos were also created to reach out to non-Chinese speaking audiences.
So far, IHKSports has launched 85 videos, which are well received by the community. Over 70 schools and organizations are leveraging these tutorial videos as online teaching resources, benefitting over 100,000 students, with over 20 media mentions and content being re-shared to various platforms.
Exercise is Not a One-off Activity
IHKSports is also actively preparing for the return of students to school! To encourage students to continue their long-term sports activities after the resumption of classes. We are producing short films on emerging sports challenges and animations related to sportsmanship, reinforcing the importance of healthy living as a long-term habit. We will also distribute the "Fight Coronavirus Hygiene Sporty Pack" to the beneficiaries after the resumption of classes, containing antiseptic disinfectant supplies, sports drinks and training guides, so that parents can rest assured that the children will safely return to their daily exercise habits.
