Futian Shangri-La Shenzhen, Wonderful Partners!

Winter descended on Shenzhen in December, but Sunday morning on 1st day of December it was simply lovely. A perfect day to ascend 40 floors – 1028 steps – 191 meters up to the finish line of the 4th Annual Shangri La Hotel’s Vertical Run.

Emil Leung, General Manager and his efficient staff welcomed guests as they registered and started their climb up 40 floors. This event is well-organized year after year and the energy from the staff cheering on the runners to the dancing oranges and professional chefs who prepared a delicious and healthy brunch – you could not ask for anything more. And yet there was more….A check in the amount of RMB10,400 was given to Captivating International to continue funding their operations in Western China; specifically, the Seng Girls Home.

1st place honors went to Xiao Ye Wen Ci who comes from Japan for the men’s division at 8 minutes 29 seconds and Rita from Recognize Academy received recognition as the first place finisher in the women’s division.

The best part about this race was that it promoted healthy activities for families. There were many families that ran up the stairs together or at least in close proximity to each other. Joe and Julie Ponthier brought along their son Zach and twin daughters all under the age of 10 and they all arrived on the 40th floor together.
