About CLSA

Community

At CLSA, it is not all about words and numbers, we like to roll up our sleeves and dig in! The CLSA Community Outreach Programme was officially launched on 30 June 2007. Through our community outreach programme we participate in local initiatives across all the markets in which we operate.

We sponsor events that enable our staff and clients to actively engage in community services and raise money for charity.

CLSA and Oxfam Trailwalker
 
 

Oxfam Trailwalker is one of the largest fundraising sporting events in Hong Kong. Since 1986, more than 73,000 participants have raised over HK$365 million to support Oxfam’s various poverty alleviation and emergency relief projects in Africa and Asia, including Hong Kong and mainland China.

Oxfam Trailwalker is a 100km sponsored walking event through Hong Kong’s New Territories covering the whole length of the MacLehose Trail. The trail consists of 10 stages of varying terrain and difficulty, but mostly lots of unrelenting steep hills. Each team is required to pass through 10 checkpoints and complete the trail together in less than 48 hours. The record time is under 12 hours. The majority take from 20 to 40 hours.

On 16-18 November 2012, CLSA had once again entered four teams of four people each in the Hong Kong Oxfam Trailwalker event. It is one of the most popular and well known fundraising charity events in the HK calendar!
