TrailHiker will be held on November 2 starting from MGM Cotai. The event, which is this year celebrating its 10th anniversary, is committed to promoting wellness, teamwork, environmental awareness and contribution to the community.
Over the last 10 years, TrailHiker has attracted a total of 16,200 participants, according to organizers, who have hiked 270,000 kilometers in total. This is seven times the distance around the equator.
It fundraises for different local charities each year. This year, the proceeds will be donated to two charities with Christian backgrounds, the Cradle of Hope Association (COHA) and the Salvation Army.
