NGO & CHARITY PARTNERS
NGO & CHARITY PARTNERS
PURE is committed to being a responsible and contributing corporate citizen. We aim to improve the well-being of those in the communities we live in and inspire them to lead healthier, happier lives.
We hope to offer our assistance in practical and meaningful ways. Listed below are causes and organizations we are proud to support and partner with.
Children's Cancer Foundation - Every year about 160 children in HK along are diagnosed with cancer, with devastating effects on the victims and their families. For over 23 years, CCF has been committed to improve the quality of life for young cancer patients and their families in caring for their physical, psychological and social wellbeing. They also assist all major public hospitals in Hong Kong to upgrade equipment and services in paediatric oncology.
We hope to contribute to their work and share PURE's healthy lifestyle with them. Initiatives include yoga and fitness classes for the children and their parents, volunteering to offer help when needed as well as charity classes from time to time.
Hands On Hong Kong - HandsOn Hong Kong (HOHK)’s mission is to mobilize and empower our community to meet pressing social needs in Hong Kong through volunteer services. They offer volunteers the flexibility to commit to just one volunteer activity at a time, and access to a wide range of volunteer opportunities serving a variety of local causes. Volunteers simply register and sign up on line for the activities they wish to take part in.
Their programs support under-served local causes and benefit a wide range of disadvantaged groups including children, elderly people and people with disabilities. Their programs cover activities including the provision of after-school tutoring to ethnic minority students; helping improve the living conditions of the elderly and people with disabilities; caring for abandoned animals, as well as assisting in the redistribution of edible surplus foods. HOHK have around 80 activities a month serving the local community.
Hong Kong Breast Cancer Foundation - Over 5 years of ongoing support by holding charity classes in October, participating in fundraising and other events such as Yogathon with all proceeds benefiting HKBCF.
Hong Kong Cancer Fund (HKCF) - Hong Kong's largest cancer support organisation, providing free information and professional support to anyone affected by cancer. Living by their motto, "So no one faces cancer alone", their goal is to make lives better for people touched by cancer.
We are honored to be a long term proponent of HKCF's Wellness Programme. Over the last four years, HKCF have over 200 classes a year in our centres and touched the lives of over 7,500 participants. We also support various fundraising events and awareness campaigns, such as 'Pink Revolution' and 'Stride for a Cure'.
The Hong Kong Cleanup
Having engaged over 100,000 volunteers in cleaning up over 350,000kg of trash, Ecovision's Hong Kong Cleanup is firmly established as a well-loved and vital part of the HK event landscape, now in its 13th year! PURE is proud to be an official partner and support their initiatives throughout the year.
Sign up a team to be part of the 2013 Cleanup Challenge at HKcleanup.org.
Hong Kong Dog Rescue - Ongoing support to their major annual fundraising event Peak to Fong and in 2012 we were one of the main benefactors of their first Gala event Viva Paw Vegas.
Mother's Choice is a non-profit organization that provides and promotes loving, nurturing care for babies and children needing permanent homes, and for single girls and their families facing crisis pregnancies.
We offer support via fundraising activities and donations for their events; Pre-Natal classes for the expectant teenage girls and volunteering initiatives. Their biggest fundraising events are their Annual Gala Dinner held in May (This year's was 11 May at JW Marriott with over 500 guests!) and their yearly Golf Tournament at Clearwater Golf Course held in October.
St. John's Cathedral - For years we have been advocates of St. John's Cathedral Michaelmas Fair and other fundraising activities.
Yoga Gives Back - Founded in 2007 in Los Angeles to find a way to help the poorest people in the country that gave birth to yoga. Yoga Gives Back specifically targets and supports impoverished women and children in India for them to start building sustainable livelihoods. PURE proudly supports YGB yearly’s "Thank you Mother India" event with fundraising classes.
SHARING IS CARING!
Sometimes our help come in different ways. We may donate used equipment or excess goods to various institutions or share our facilities. We may also host some events that can contribute towards healthier and happier lives in our community.
Starting in November 2012, we are delighted to continue our support to Island School's Health Week.
Every November we host a group of 40 students for a week of activities at PURE Fitness Lee Theater Plaza.
This week-long event addresses the importance of regular physical activity for their overall health leading to a more positive and balanced lifestyle choice.
The students may also use this event to raise money for a charity of their choice teaching them about helping those less fortunate and promoting a sense of community.
A win-win for all! We look forward to hosting them again this year.
Testimonial from the organizer:
“Dear PURE Team –
I just wanted to say thank you for giving Island School such a wonderful opportunity this week to experience a top quality fitness facility and to be taught by consummate professionals in the ProTraining and group fitness departments. The students have had a fantastic, fun and engaging week and understand the importance of maintaining an active life style throughout their lives.
