By 1970 the Board of Governors of The Matilda & War Memorial Hospital, as it was called then, was faced with a dilemma to either modernise the Hospital or close it down. The decision was made to modernise and keep it open. The loyal nurses wanted to do what they could to help promote "Matilda" as the Hospital was fondly known. One of the nurses, Sister Joyce Smith, came up with a dual-purpose idea: a novelty race to raise money for charity and at the same time raise the Hospital's profile.





The annual Sedan Chair Race is the main fundraising event of the Sedan Chair Charities Fund. It consists of teams carrying sedan chairs racing around the Peak on a route (2.1km for both courses), starting from The Matilda International Hospital. Teams from a broad cross-section of Hong Kong – corporations, associations, clubs and schools – are all welcome to join the Race. Each team consists of 4-8 people and a passenger, we provide the sedan chair, with money for the Fund raised through entrance fees and sponsorship of the team. There are numerous prizes to be won for fit teams as well as fun awards for creative teams such as the best dressed, the best decorated chair, the most entertaining and the team that best captures the Spirit of the Event.
