Esri China (HK) Sponsored the “CyberRun for Rehab”
for the 12th Consecutive Year
Hundreds of runners and walkers gathered in the afternoon of November 8, 2015 at Ap Lei Chau for the 12th CyberRun for the Rehabilitation with the theme of “Sunset Jogging to Cyberport”. Esri China (HK) takes great pride to have sponsored this annual charitable event for twelfth consecutive years.

The event is co-organized by the Hong Kong Society for Rehabilitation (HKSR) and Hong Kong Cyberport Management Company Limited aiming at heightening public awareness of healthy living by running or walking while raising funds. The funds would be used to finance the advocacy work of HKSR in Hong Kong and China, as well as training and consultation programmes of rehabilitation service for people with disabilities or chronic diseases, in particular the implementation of “Train the Trainers” programmes for children with disabilities in rural and urban areas of Mainland China.
This year, Esri China (HK) continued providing its support and Dr. Winnie Tang, Chairman of Esri China (HK), also took part in the meaningful event alongside our fellow colleagues. Many of them have brought their young ones along to show their support.
What’s more, Esri China (HK) gave our technology support by developing a “CyberRun Mobile GIS App”. The mobile app helped the participants to get familiar of the new running / walking route of “CyberRun for Rehab 2015”, which featured a new route from Ap Lei Chau to Cyberport, by showing scenic spots and checkpoints along the way for better preparation. Most importantly, the map interface also helped the organizer to monitor the real-time situation, making sure that the runners and walkers were following the right route and the event was going on smoothly.
After the event, the mobile app can also serve as a simple and user-friendly tool to record users’ running and walking activities, aiming at encouraging citizens to keep up healthy life with running and walking.
“CyberRun Mobile GIS App” was developed by Arc ArcGIS Runtime SDK for iOS and Android, and ArcGIS Online technology was used to provide the rich features of the mobile app.

The event was enlightened by the "spirit of inclusion" as everyone participated with the kindred spirits of mutual support, care for community, and team spirit barring all physical differences in abilities and strengths.
Esri China (HK) takes social responsibility as an integral part of its business. The company's enduring slogan "GIS: Serving Our World", and its actions over the years demonstrate this. We will continue inherit this excellent corporate culture in caring our local community with the spirit of "To give is more blessing than to receive".
