    Hosted on 25 and 26 November at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium in Wan Chai, the Sports for Hope Talent Search Fundraising Day proved to be a huge success in promoting physical fitness to the public.

    On the first day, Sports Legacy Scheme's coaching team served more than 250 primary school students in the Talent Search Programme, which included six different physical fitness tests, and used it to scout potential student-athletes. Based on the result, the students were introduced to the NSA Sports Station to enjoy free sports trial.

    Fitness Challenge and Team Challenge were held on the second day. 14 corporate teams, ten school teams and a team from Construction Industry Council had been invited to compete with each other. The teams wowed the crowds with their impressive performance.
