The walkathon, which was held in partnership with the daily newspaper Chosun Ilbo, took place in Seoul’s Olympic Park and attracted over 3,000 people, including 1,000 Homeplus colleagues.

A number of key figures also joined the walkathon, such as the President of the National Cancer Centre, the President of the Korean Cancer Association, a representative from the Breast Cancer Patients Community and 17 foreign ambassadors.

As part of the event, Homeplus provided healthy cooking demonstrations and a health check-up service.

The registration fee for the walkathon will be donated to support medical treatment of breast cancer patients.
