3.2 Publicity Stunt – July 27, 1991 – “Climb for Hope”

In July 1991, a group of Canadian climbers planned to ascend Mount Everest to raise funds for the Canadian Rett Syndrome Association. On the way to Mount Everest, the climbers visited Hong Kong and were invited to “scale” the 6-storey building of CDNIS at no.7 Eastern Hospital Road to raise a Canadian flag on top of the building as a symbol of the formal establishment of CDNIS.

A reception was held in a restaurant at Elizabeth House through the connection of Fred Kan and Spencer Lee, and the press was invited, with the help of the Commission for Canada, to attend the reception and the climb of the campus for publicity of CDNIS. The event was cosponsored by CCA and CDNIS.
