Climb For Hope Vertical Charity Run

Jing An Shangri-La, Shanghai, offered guests the ideal place to take in the city view of the downtown business centre and beyond from the top of Shanghai, turning the hotel into a venue for a unique charity event in the form of a vertical charity run, which kicked off at 8:45 a.m. on 17 October 2021.

300 runners, who came from different parts of society, gathered at the event centre on level 5 and conquered the 1,557 steps to reach the finishing line at 60 floors high, hitting the fastest record being set at 10 minutes and 16 seconds. The event continued as a Jing An Shangri-La, Shanghai corporate social responsibility tradition, and this time donations from the participation fees amounted to a total of CNY 119,400 and was handed over to the Shanghai Children’s Medical Centre to help underprivileged children. In the past seven years, Jing An Shangri-La, Shanghai has successfully donated CNY 665,488 in total through the Climb for Hope Vertical Charity Run.

Apart from climbing for charity, Jing An Shangri-La, Shanghai also hoped to encourage people to pursue a healthier and more positive lifestyle through this event. The stresses of living in a big, urban city demands that we spend most of our time and energy at work, neglecting healthy living habits like proper nutrition, sleep and exercise. Climb for Hope Vertical Charity Run presents a light-hearted and fun side to exercise, bringing together families and the community to climb together.

Participants this year came from the public and participating partner communities – Shanghai Pilot Health Promotion Center. All were welcome to participate, whether amateurs or elite runners, as we climbed for a good cause. Everyone was a winner as long as they participated, with a congratulatory completion medal presented at the finishing line.

After the event, participants were invited to enjoy their breakfast buffet at the hotel’s Grand Ballroom.
