1 Corinthians 13: 1 & 13

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Letter to the Editor(6B Leroy Yuen)

Dear Editor,

As a volunteer worker for the Cancer Foundation, I am writing to invite the public to take part in our coming charity run. One may ask why this charity run matters or what they would gain from this activity. Let me assure you that by joining this charity run not only are you helping the people in need, but you are also helping yourself.

First of all, the run raises money for cancer patients. The funds raised will be used in cancer research, which is incredibly crucial in the development of cancer treatment. A huge number of people are killed by this apathetic killer every year. We urgently need more advanced cancer treatment and medical technology, and this can be achieved by doing cancer research. Therefore, we really hope people can support us by participating in the run and showing their generosity to the cancer patients. The continual development of cancer research needs money. With your donations, we can go further in cancer research and thousands of precious lives will be saved.

Secondly, the charity run also helps in raising public awareness of the cancer disease. I believe many people know that cancer is one of the deadliest diseases in the world. Nevertheless, how many people truly understand the suffering of the cancer patients and thus offer comfort and help? In fact, everyone can give a hand; everyone can do something to alleviate the pain of the cancer patients. By participating in the charity run, you will know more about this disease and may have the chance to talk to some cancer patients. You are not just there to run; you are also showing your support and encouragement to the cancer patients.

Thirdly, this charity run provides a great chance for people to relax and have fun with their friends and family. The activity also helps them broaden their social lives as they will meet new friends. More, this run gives people a chance to exercise. Hong Kong people are too busy to think about their own health, family and friends. It is time for them to stop working and do something meaningful and relaxing, such as joining our charity run, together with their family and friends.

It is better to give than to receive. We should be thankful for what we have and reach out to the people who need our help. For the sake of a batter, peaceful world, let’s participate in the charity run together!

Yours faithfully,

Chris Wong
