On January 5, some 200 SGI-Hong Kong (SGI-HK) members participated in the "Hong Kong and Kowloon Walk for Millions." The walk is 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 services and initiatives working with vulnerable groups in Hong Kong.
The walk covered a total distance of 10 kilometers from the Hong Kong Stadium to Aberdeen Country Park Visitors Center. SGI-HK members, some of whom had traveled long distances to join the walk, raised a total of HK$83,000 (US$10,700). All funds raised will be allocated by The Community Chest of Hong Kong to 23 member organizations that provide family support and child protection services in Hong Kong.
SGI-HK members also participated in the 2013 walk.
