DYXnet Group’s dragon boat gladiators awarded 1st runner-up honours after harnessing the power of teamwork and training tirelessly for glory

“The team spirit and camaraderie built by DYXnet staff is powerful enough to move mountains – at work and at play!”

 

HONG KONG – June 19, 2018 – DYXnet Group dragon boat paddlers this year focused on the concept “TEAM stands for Together Everyone Achieves More” when they prepared to compete in yesterday’s “Family + Fish DYXnet Charity Cup” as part of the world-famous Dragon Boat, or Tueng Ng, Festival.

 

A 20-strong team led by Founder & CEO Lap Man alongside COO Jacky Wan honed its sculling skills under the guidance of a professional coach during 10 gruelling training sessions.

 

Our waterborne warriors even trained in turbulent Typhoon No.1 conditions to help them overcome obstacles in their race against hot favourites such as the MTR, Tsui Wah Restaurant and Herbalife teams. Our crew’s dedication paid off when we finished the race as 1st runner-up out of five teams.

 

This year saw DYXnet Group – Greater China’s leading carrier-neutral network service provider – sponsoring the event for the fourth time since 2012 and playing a central role in raising funds to purchase nutritious fresh fish for underprivileged families in Hong Kong.

 

The crew was decked out in specially designed T-shirts and wielded carbon-fibre paddles sporting a graphic based on the dragon, a symbol of great power and a determination-to-win in Chinese culture. They were cheered on by an enthusiastic group of colleagues and family members, who sought to generate a carnival atmosphere around our team.

 

Lap Man said: “I have been so proud to see DYXnet staff and family members willing to sacrifice their leisure time in order to represent the company to the very best of their ability. The team spirit and camaraderie they have built is powerful enough to move mountains – at work and at play!”

 

He added: “Dragon boat racing is a treasured tradition in Hong Kong, based on a truly vibrant aspect of Chinese culture – and we plan to support the Charity Cup race in years to come. This fits snugly with DYXnet’s ongoing desire to help low income families, as a socially responsible corporate citizen.”

 

Five days before the race, Floria Chan – DYXnet’s Marketing & Corporate Communications Group Director – rolled up her sleeves to help hand out fresh fish to low income families.

 

The Family + Fish Charity Cup race has been organised every year by the Aberdeen Dragon Boat Race Committee since 2012, with the aim of raising funds to purchase some 3,000 pieces of nutritious fish for low income families and the elderly in Hong Kong.

 

DYXnet Founder & CEO Lap Man joined forces with Mr Lau Kong-wah, JP – the HKSAR Government’s Secretary for Home Affairs – after the race to present prizes to winners.
