S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Walkathon Marks 32nd Anniversary with Multicultural Carnival

Vancouver, BC – S.U.C.C.E.S.S.’s Foundation annual Walk with the Dragon was successfully held at the Lumbermen’s Arch, Stanley Park with over 6,000 participants and raised 400,188 for the continuance and enhancement of important social services at S.U.C.C.E.S.S. for the Metro Vancouver communities.
 
“The Walk is a great time to meet old and new friends. In addition to many familiar faces, we have engaged more newcomers and refugee clients. Many of them joined the event for the first time,” said Sing Lim Yeo, Chair of S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation. “The event also provides them with an opportunity to learn Canadian culture, and connect with the community,” added Yeo.  

Led by the 100-foot S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Dragon, over 100 teams marched along the 7-km sojourn around the seawall at Stanley Park. Music and songs then enveloped Lumbermen’s Arch to a fever pitch with giveaways and prizes at the carnival style game booths perfect for the whole family. This year, the mainstage performance welcomed a special group of performers – Kurdish Entertainment Group of refugee singers and dancers. Through music, they shared their culture with the public and expressed their appreciation to be part of the Canadian community.   

Each year, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Walk with the Dragon garners the staunch support of elected officials from the three levels of government and prominent community leaders. Leading the group this year was Hon. Harjit Singh Sajjan Minister of National Defense and Hon. Jody Wilson-Raybould, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada.

“Over the past months, we have been overwhelmed by the support from the community in many creative ways to give back to the community. In addition to those long-time supporters, youth and new Chinese Canadians have also played an important role in the Walk this year,” said Chris Chan and Steven Shen, Co-Chairs of the 2017 S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Walk with the Dragon. “Our immense gratitude and appreciation to donors, sponsors, volunteers, staff and participants, “added Chan and Shen.

New HSBC Youth Support Program to Help 300+ Immigrants and Refugee Youth in Metro Vancouver

Vancouver, BC – S.U.C.C.E.S.S. is happy to announce a new $300,000 donation from HSBC Bank Canada, establishing the HSBC Youth Support Program which will help new-to-Canada youth in Metro Vancouver. The program will provide more than 300 youth with career support, mentorship and skills-building workshops to help them succeed, finish school and pursue further education or career options over the next three years (2017-20).
 
“Immigrant and refugee youth who arrive in Canada as teenagers may face challenges to graduate high school in Canada due to many interacting factors, and there are very few programs to support youth who age out of school,” said Queenie Choo, CEO of S.U.C.C.E.S.S. “HSBC has been a long-standing partner of S.U.C.C.E.S.S., and their continued generosity and support for the youth and clients we serve will make a lasting difference in the lives of individuals and our community.”

The program officially starts in September 2017, and will run for three years in Vancouver, Richmond, Surrey, Burnaby and the Tri-Cities regions. In addition to financial support, HSBC employees will also volunteer as part of the program.

“At HSBC, we believe our responsibilities extend beyond our customers, shareholders and employees to the wider communities where we operate,” says Jocelyn Hsiung, Head of Branch Network, British Columbia, HSBC Bank Canada. “The HSBC Youth Support Program was created by S.U.C.C.E.S.S. to address an important need in our communities, and to support young people to reach their full potential.”

The celebration of this gift and official announcement will take place during the opening program of the 2017 Walk with the Dragon event at 9:00am, Sunday, 16 July 2017 at Lumberman’s Arch in Stanley Park.

Celebrate Summer with 100-foot-long S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Dragon

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 11, 2017

Celebrate Summer with 100-foot-long S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Dragon


Vancouver, BC – S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation’s signature event Walk with the Dragon will be held this Sunday, July 16, 2017. S.U.C.C.E.S.S. staff and walkers are gearing up for its 32nd anniversary at Lumbermen’s Arch, Stanley Park, Vancouver. The S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Dragon will again lead over 6,000 walkers to raise $400,000. All proceeds will go to the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Caring for the Community Fund to maintain and enhance services that have no or insufficient government funding, especially programs for immigrants, refugees, youth, women, families and seniors.

First launched in 1986, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Walk with the Dragon has raised over $12 million for important social services and programs for Metro Vancouver communities.

“Endeavors such as the Walk will ensure those otherwise would be underserved to have access to important programs such as Youth Leadership Millennium Program, Multicultural Early Childhood Development Program (MECD), Chinese Help Lines and senior services provided by S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Multi-Level Care Society,” said Sing Lim Yeo, Chair of S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation.

In 2015-2016, MECD served close to 250 families with over 5,800 touch points provided in support of their efforts to integrate into the community. The Chinese Help Lines, available in Mandarin and Cantonese, handled over 7,000 calls involving 111 specialized volunteers who contributed around 5,400 hours. More than 360 individuals received S.U.C.C.E.S.S.’s counselling service through 2,287 interviews. Around 200 youth were served with over 300 sessions delivered. The donation also helped fund exercise equipment, dental clinic and ceiling lifts at the seniors care facilities. S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation has played a crucial role in bridging the gap by investing in value-added programs that are important to the community.

On Sunday, July 16, the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Dragon will lead a 7-km excursion around the Stanley Park seawall. There will be another 3-km walk along Lost Lagoon for those who would like to spend more time at the main stage. RBC Kids Zone will provide more fun activities such as sports training games, bouncy castle, face painting, airbrush tattoos, balloon twister, photo-shoot, crafts, henna tattoos and caricature drawing to bring more fun to the young families and their kids.

The festivities will kick off at 8:30am with the eye-dotting ceremony for the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Dragon followed by multicultural performances featuring Japanese, Korean, Philippine, Chinese and Mexican until 12:30pm.

Complimentary shuttle bus services from Vancouver, Richmond and Tri-Cities to Stanley Park will be available for the public. For details, please visit: http://www.successfoundation.ca/walk2017.

“We are very delighted to see increasing support from newcomer community this year. In addition to those long-time sponsors, e.g. Official T-shirt Sponsor - Concord Pacific Group; VIP Reception Sponsor - Vancity; and Official Airline Sponsor - Air Canada, we also welcome new supporters such as 1029 Café, Foregrowth Club, Jonathan Lu, Terry Liu & Associates Ltd., Bohan Investment Group, CBGH, and PREC & Winstom Financial, and Liuyiushou Hotpot ” said Chris Chan and Steven Shen, Co-Chairs of Walk 2017. “With generous support from the community, we can build stronger communities where people of any age feel connected, supported, and empowered,” Chan and Shen added.

One day before the event on Saturday July 15, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation will host a fundraising radiothon again in partnership with CHMB AM1320. The Radiothon runs from 8:00 am to midnight. The audience will hear heartfelt stories and information about the services and programs that the public might not be aware. The public are encouraged to call: 604-263-1320 to donate to the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation.

Events like S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Walk with the Dragon would not be as successful as they are without the help of donors. To make a donation, please visit http://www.successfoundation.ca/walk2017/ or call at: 604-408-7228. Donation is welcome on the event day.
