Pancake Day Race 2015
Feeding Hong Kong launches the city’s 2nd Annual Pancake Day Race and would like to invite you to join us!
Feeding Hong Kong, in partnership with Clifford Chance, is once again bringing the Pancake Day Race to Hong Kong! The event will take place on February 17, 2015 (Tuesday) at The University of Hong Kong Campus in Pokfulam.
What is Pancake Day?
Pancake Day (Shrove Tuesday) falls between February 2 and March 9 every year, depending on the date of Easter. In the UK, Pancake Day is traditionally celebrated by having pancakes and participating in pancake races.
The Pancake Day Race is an annual fundraiser for Feeding Hong Kong, as well as a fun way to cement relationships with our genuine supporters.
2nd Annual Pancake Day Race
In this madcap relay race, teams of five participants will don aprons and hats, grab frying pans and toss their pancakes while completing the course. The event consists of a knockout tournament, ending in a Grand Final, after which the winning team will win the coveted Fastest Tossers Trophy. There will be additional prizes for Best Tossing Technique, Best Dressed Tosser and Most Entertaining Tosser. Fancy dress is not just allowed but strongly encouraged!
In keeping with Feeding Hong Kong’s mission of reducing the volume of food waste going to landfill, there will be onsite compost bins, for all non-eaten pancakes. This compost will then be worked back into the ground, ensuring zero waste.
