The 2019 Kidz With Heart Mini Olympics

A fund-raising event supporting the work of Captivating International in China

Shekou International School (SIS) Jingshan Villa, Shekou was once again filled with a buzz of action, high-5’s and passionate kids on Saturday March 16, as Captivating in conjunction with the Shenzhen Charity Federation, ran the first of two Mini Olympics events for the 8th year.

175 kids (5 – 11 year olds) competed in multiple Olympic-style events including basketball shoot, golf, short and long-distance running races, three-legged race, bean bag toss, ping-pong ball game, archery, long-jump and a limbo event. Parents, volunteers and multiple local businesses supported the event and a great day of fun and excitement was had by all.

Congratulations to all participants who each received a Mini Olympics medal and special congratulations to the award winners, who proudly received their gold, silver and bronze medals while displaying their country flags at the end of the event.

The event raised funds for Captivating, a Hong Kong registered charity, operating under the umbrella and guidance of the Shenzhen Charity Federation. Funds raised will support the ongoing work of Captivating in China including educational support for girls who have missed schooling, healthy village programs and helping entire villages address their poverty through animal husbandry and greenhouses.

Our sincerest THANKS to the following who made this happen:

Are You Ready?!
We have two action-packed Family Sports Days at two locations over two weekends!

Kids from 5-11 years old across Shenzhen will represent their home countries in a variety of sporting activities while raising money to help impoverished children in China reach out for a better tomorrow.

Together we will be raising funds for our projects which help children progress in their schooling and aid parents improve their livelihoods.


With your support, 1,000 girls in China and many of their families will see their lives transformed this year.

Our Mission
We believe within every child lives the potential for greatness – something of incredible value they can offer to their world. For some, much of this value is lost because of poverty or prejudice. Our mission is to see disadvantaged, impoverished, poorest-of-the-poor children soar – see them reach out for a better tomorrow.
