Corporate Sales Department 7 Comment from the person in charge
I feel that we were able to motivate participants to participate in the walking event not only for health promotion, but also for contributing to society. The number of steps is automatically linked to the health care app on the smartphone and reflected, so
participants were very grateful that it did not require any effort. In addition, the ranking displayed by nicknames was exciting within the club, and especially the top members were in a dead heat. Through the walking event, I was able to experience the two points of “health promotion” and “social contribution”, and I was able to make a very meaningful effort. All the participants continue to support the project in Suzu City, Ishikawa Prefecture, which is the recipient of this donation.
