The Community Chest Virtual Walk Continues to “Stride” for Millions
And Raise Funds for Family and Child Welfare Services
 
Walk for Millions is not only the most iconic fundraising event of The Community Chest of Hong Kong (the Chest) but also immensely popular among the public. This campaign year, it will continue to be held virtually due to the pandemic and social distancing measures.
 
Fully supported by Bank of China (Hong Kong), 100% of the donations raised from the event will be allocated to family and child welfare services supported by the Chest without deduction of administrative costs.
 
This time, participants are required to walk 10,000 steps between 9-23 January 2022 at any time and place in any form. To promote low carbon living and reduce carbon emission, the Chest will launch a green challenge during the event where participants will have a chance to win an eco-friendly gift after completing the designated carbon reduction tasks.
 
The first virtual walk was launched in 2020/2021 campaign year and raised over HK$5.3 million. It attracted the participation of more than 5,500 people with over 105 million steps recorded.
 
The 2021/2022 team and individual enrolment is now open. To enrol or to learn more about the event, please visit www.commchest.org/event/vwalk2022 or scan the QR code below.
 
About The Community Chest of Hong Kong
The Community Chest of Hong Kong was established in 1968 as an independent, non-governmental and non-profit organisation. Each year, the Chest organises a variety of fundraising events for over 160 member agencies to support social services in six key areas for over 2.5 million beneficiaries in Hong Kong: children & youth, elderly, family & child welfare, medical & health, rehabilitation & aftercare, and community development. Uniquely among its peers, the Chest’s administration expenses are defrayed by a subsidised grant from its partner-in-charity, The Hong Kong Jockey Club, in addition to income from prudent fund investments. This allows the Chest to allocate 100% of funds raised to charitable use and to fulfil its promise as trustee of the donors. To learn more, visit www.commchest.org or @commchestHK on Facebook.
