We formed the largest Human Rainbow in the
world on 6 October 2002 !
The sky brightened over the Hong Kong Stadium
on Sunday morning, 6 October 2002, as 11,273 PolyU staff, students,
alumni, friends and families united together and set a new world
record. All wearing T-shirts and caps in seven rainbow colours,
they formed the largest Human Rainbow in the world. This historic
event, held in celebration of PolyU's 65th anniversary, aimed to
raise fund for the University, the Children's Cancer Foundation
and The Hong Kong Society for the Aged. A big, big thank you to
all guests, sponsors, supporting parties and participants for helping
to make the event a huge success! The last world record of the largest
Human Rainbow was made by a group of 6,444 people at Transco Tower
Park, Houston, Texas, in 1997.
