On Jan 6, over 100 SGI-Hong Kong members participated in the "Walk for Millions: Hong Kong and Kowloon Walk"--an annual fund-raising event organized by The Community Chest of Hong Kong, an NGO that provides financial support to a wide range of welfare service initiatives benefiting vulnerable groups in Hong Kong.
Various organizations, including SGI-Hong Kong, were invited to the opening ceremony, together with Hong Kong Chief Executive Chun-Ying Leung.
Walkers, some carrying their organization's banners, covered a total distance of 10 kilometers, taking roughly three to four hours.
SGI-Hong Kong members of various ages participated, with some traveling long distances to support the event. In total, they raised HK$60,000 (US$7,740).
The Community Chest of Hong Kong will allocate all funds raised to 23 social welfare member agencies that provide family and child welfare services.
