On September 26, one of the city's 2020 "Running Dalian" series of activities, the National University (in Dalian) Alumni Association Team Relay Race was held in the Donggang Business District. Thirty-five teams from the alumni associations of more than 30 universities across the country, including Peking University, Tsinghua University, Tongji University and Xi'an Jiaotong University, participated in the competition. Our school was also invited to participate, 4 alumni representatives participated, more than 30 students and alumni participated in the volunteer ranks.
At 8:30, with the firing of the starting gun, the game officially began. Participants ran hard on Yangangpu Road (non-motorized vehicle lane) at the entrance of Haizhiyun Park in Donggang, Dalian. After two hours of fierce competition, the competition came to an end. Our school won the "Excellent Organization Award" in this event.

I am very happy to be able to represent my alma mater to participate in this competition. I hope that our performance today reflects the demeanor of all the students from the Neusoft Alumni Association. I think the theme of this event is particularly good, "We are all dream chasers striving for a new era". On the occasion of the National Day, I feel highly honored to celebrate the birthday of the motherland in this way.
Liu Gang, a Grade 2001 alumnus of our school (currently working in the Network and Information Center of our university)
I’ve been running for about four to five years, and I have gained a lot of benefits, including physical health, and more importantly the spiritual gain and improvement. I made a lot of friends in the process of running. They are very hardworking, and they all have the spirit of persistence. I have been working in my Alma mater since graduation for many years, so I have witnessed the gradual growth of my alma mater, and also witnessed the realization of students' dreams at Neusoft one year after another. I wish Neusoft get better and better, and our motherland a happy birthday!

Many alumni came to the scene today, and the old friends met again and were very happy. The positive atmosphere on the scene made me feel the passion of my student days again. Fortunately, even after graduating for so many years, the momentum to move forward has not diminished. At the same time, I am very happy to meet new teachers and classmates. A saying I often mention after exercise is called: exercise changes the brain. Although there are the simple six words in the saying, it motivates me to change my behavior habits, thinking habits and maintain good energy through exercise. After graduation, I chose to start my own business. Creative work is also a very arduous process, and specific problems must be solved by myself. In the seven years since I started my business, I have noticed profound changes in the way I think about problems and my ability to solve difficult problems. This process is like a marathon. It is easy to give up. Only a strong spiritual power can lead us to the end. During this process, you may repeatedly ask yourself: Why do you want to stick to it? This is where sportsmanship is similar to entrepreneurship.

Through this event, I felt a strong sportsmanship. At the same time, I also met many teachers, alumni, and friends from other schools. I hope that more events like this can be held in the future. What impressed me most was the girls in our Neusoft team, who insisted on running five kilometers, which was really great. In addition, one of the team members from other schools was disabled. He insisted on running the whole race in a wheelchair, which made me especially touched. His sportsmanship is really worth learning from each of us. I hope that the junior students will insist on doing things they like, not forgetting their original intentions, forge ahead, and work hard towards their original intentions.
