At Sun Life, our purpose is to help clients achieve lifetime financial security and live healthier lives. By actively supporting sports events, we want to encourage everybody to stay healthy both physically and mentally.

The Sun Life Stanley International Championships cum Carnival is held at the Stanley Main Beach on the Tuen Ng Festival Day which is on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month. Sun Life has been the title sponsor of this internationally renowned competition since 2008.

In 2016, Sun Life created the first-ever Dragon Boat Points Series in Hong Kong by adding two new events, namely the Sun Life Stanley Warm Up Races and Sun Life Stanley Short Course Races, in addition to the Sun Life Stanley International Championships. The three races transform the normally tranquil Stanley shoreline into a bustling carnival filled with local and international visitors, and more than 13,000 enthusiastic sports aficionados.
