“Run for Love” Dating contest (2015)

All couples aged between 16 and 30 years residing in Hong Kong were invited to plan for a meaningful date within a budget of HK$131.2 on 13th December 2015. Each couple was accompanied by the youth volunteers, who will record the activities conducted and respective costs. A secret task will be assigned to them during the journey as a test of their problem solving skills.

A total of six couples were selected and completed the dating activities. An award presentation ceremony was held after the program, with each couple shared their feelings and encounters together. Most of them treasured this opportunity to spend time together. They found the secret tasks interesting and they got to know more about their partner. Volunteers also found that experience unforgettable. They realized that communication is far more important than any sophisticated dating activities.

For the couple who spent the exact amount of $131.2, they received a gift which was cash coupons for a DIY workshop on a handmade product. All the 6 dating plans are now shared in Famplus2’s Facebook page; the couple who got the greatest number of “likes” from the public will receive another gift as a token of appreciation.
