TP 201909 QR PDFOn 31 August 2019, Shangri-La Hotel, Tianjin in Exclusive Partnership with Business Tianjin Magazine, Tianjin Plus Magazine and German Chamber of Commerce in China - North, was hosted the fourth annual Tianjin River Fun Run. More than 500 people joined us for a Saturday morning 5km run along the picturesque banks of Haihe River, concluding with a sumptuous buffet breakfast. Participants had fun, won prizes, and supported the Healing Young Hearts charity. The idea behind the fun run was to bring community together with activities and events to promote a healthy 'lifestyle' in Tianjin.

Proceeds from the Tianjin River Fun Run 100,888 RMB, has gone to Healing Young Hearts Foundation, helping to create and distribute hospital activity packs for children undergoing hospital treatment for life-threatening diseases. Fantastic community effort!

We spoke this month with the Second Master of Wellington College International Tianjin, Mr. Raja Ali, to better understand the school’s unique positioning in developing Wellingtonians. Wellington College International Tianjin enjoys a great reputation as a provider of the very best of British Education in the region, and they are preparing future generations of graduates capable of facing the challenges and opportunities of an ever-changing world.

On the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar, Mid-Autumn Festival is celebrated with its full moon occurrence. Around this time, the moon is in its brightest and roundest appearance. Chinese families spend and make quality time for each other. The primary reason why the festival is still treated special is because of the time that each family member can cherish, while eating mooncakes together and enjoying the moon-gazing night.

The round shape of a mooncake represents completeness and reunion with loved ones, and eating together with families of friends while watching the moon symbolizes harmony and unity. The festival serves as a Thanksgiving Day for a successful harvest, while praying for a better future. With mooncakes all over, come the traditional lanterns as a symbol of fertility. The exchange of mooncakes from families and friends is noteworthy.

On September 13th of 2019 is this year Mid-Autumn Festival and a Tianjin Dragon Boat Race will be staged. We hope everyone spend the Mid-Autumn Festival on the bank of the magnificent Haihe River and enjoy a great Dragon Boat Festival. You can read the details inside of this issue. The boat of Tianjin International Charity Team (TICT) is organized by Tianjin Dragon Boat Association and Shangri-La Hotel, Tianjin with the support of BTAC and Tianjin Plus Magazine to raise funds for the Cathay Future Foundation “Healing Young Hearts Program”. TICT is composed of 26 paddlers from more than 18 countries that are living in Tianjin. It has raised for the charity more than RMB15,000, and each paddler has paid RMB600 for the seat that is donated fully to the charity program.
