The YOLO Run movement from Singapore has come to Hong Kong! The concept of the YOLO Run is for participants to free themselves (#freeyourselves), followed by participating in a Mass Yoga (#yoloyoga) session at the end of the run. The philosophy of "you only live once" (#YOLO) is well illustrated by the mindset where participants strip it all off and not care about what people think, from labels to stereotypes to body types and inhibitions, and is cleverly complemented by the literal action of running shirtless. The YOLO element of the run is further emphasised by the CSR component where for every runner who runs shirtless, the organisers will make a donation to the adopted beneficiary. Come #runshirtlessforcharity this October 2017!
