As the newly installed chairman of the Society for the Promotion of Hospice Care, Provisional Legislative Councillor Dr Leong Che-hung says he will definitely be taking part in the annual fund-raising Hike the Hills for Hospice 1998 in Pat Sin Leng Country Park on March 1. But, he adds: 'I will probably just do the less strenuous route as my only method of keeping fit consists of walking from my office to the Legco building.' In its sixth year, the hike has attracted a large following - from corporate types to socialites who enjoy donning their boots and breathing the mountain air. Hike chairman Cally Baxter hopes to raise $3 million, against last year's $2.5 million. 'We are hoping to get 90 teams of four people each.' Gurkha's from the RHKR Volunteer Association will assist in manning the checkpoints along the route. 'We are also allowing additional corporate teams and individual walkers to sign up, and support from sponsors has been a tremendous help.' Apart from raising money for the hospice society, which provides assistance to terminally ill cancer patients as well as training for medical professionals and volunteers, there is the added incentive of a delicious curry lunch at the end of the walk. As Dr Leung puts it: 'The main reason I'm there is to keep up the spirits and enjoy the curry.'
