Community Awareness and Fund Raising

Raising money and awareness

MINDSET provides financial support to mental health related projects and NGOs in Hong Kong and mainland China.

Below are a few of the community awareness and fundraising initiatives organised across the Group:

Walk Up Jardine House

Walk Up Jardine House is one of the best known fund raising events organised by MINDSET. Hundreds of Jardines' colleagues, business associates, families, 'Health in Mind' school students and friends walk or run up the 49 floors of Jardine House to raise funds for MINDSET.

The 2018 Walk Up Jardine House event raised HK$3.3 million.

CENTRAL Rat Race

Group companies are also active in organising fund raising initiatives in support of MINDSET.

Hongkong Land's signature event, the CENTRAL Rat Race, involves teams of executives from some of Hong Kong's leading companies dressed in business attire or creative costumes and running shoes, racing around the Central Business District, while navigating different obstacles.

MINDSET Fun Day

The annual MINDSET Fun Day organised by the Jardine Ambassadors help raise mental health awareness across the Group.

Noonday Gun

Individuals or organisations who donate a specified sum to MINDSET are given the opportunity to fire the Jardines Noonday Gun, a tradition that dates back to the very early days of Hong Kong.

Contributions from Group Companies

In addition to funds raised through Walk Up Jardine House and the CENTRAL Rat Race, Group companies make large cash donations annually.

In 2016/17 over HK$3.3 million was donated to MINDSET. Maxim's Caterers also made a generous donation of HK$1 million to MINDSET.
