Dogged training pays off when DYXnet Group's dragon boat crew paddles to glory in the "Family + Fish DYXnet Group Charity Cup" race

"This is an ideal way of translating our corporate culture into supporting charity, fostering fellowship and exercising our competitive spirit"

HONG KONG, May 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- DYXnet Group, Greater China's leading carrier-neutral network service provider, scored a hat-trick yesterday by acting as title sponsor of the "Family + Fish DYXnet Group Charity Cup" race for the third year running.

Yesterday's paddle-frenzied event off the Aberdeen Promenade Waterfront was organised by the Aberdeen Dragon Boat Race Committee as part of the Dragon Boat or Tueng Ng Festival.

DYXnet Group's 20-strong team was led by Founder & CEO Lap Man, flanked by Resources Sharing Centre President Wallace Ng, plus members of staff drawn from the Hong Kong office.

The tireless team trained doggedly for yesterday's race and promised to make life at sea no pushover for hot competitors MTR, Tsui Wah Restaurant and Herbalife.

Team DYXnet was decked out in special T-shirts, while custom-made carbon fibre paddles bearing an orange dragon icon helped our rowers channel their energy into propulsion with greater efficiency, thanks to a stiffer and lighter design. This innovative approach to generating more paddle power reflected The Group's characteristic determination to succeed against all odds.

A significant highlight was the "Family + Fish" element of DYXnet Group's sponsorship on May 26, when Marketing & Corporate Communications Group Director Floria Chan rolled up her sleeves to help handout nutritious fresh fish to low-income families and the elderly.

Lap Man said: "We are delighted to be three-times title sponsor of the 'Family + Fish DYXnet Group Charity Cup' race because it is an ideal way of translating our corporate culture into supporting charity, while fostering fellowship and exercising our natural competitive spirit."

He added: "This is a great bonding opportunity, especially during the arduous training period, during which we all buy into a common goal -- winning! And we contribute to the community at the same time. In fact, I hope to see greater support for this event in coming years, so more companies like us can focus on helping unprivileged families and the elderly in Hong Kong. Lastly, well done Team DYXnet -- you were magnificent!"

After the gruelling race, prizes were awarded by Paul Chan Mo-po, GBS, MH, JP, the HKSAR Government's Financial Secretary together with Lap Man.

The "Family + Fish Charity Cup" race has been stewarded by the Aberdeen Dragon Boat Race Committee since 2012. All proceeds are used to purchase 3,000 pieces of fresh fish for low-income families and needy senior citizens in Hong Kong.
