Run­ners raise cash for war veter­ans

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - BUSINESS -

The mileage from run­ners can be trans­formed into cash do­na­tions to old sol­diers in north­ern He­bei province who par­tic­i­pated in the War of Re­sis­tance Against Ja­panese Ag­gres­sion (1931-45). Each par­tic­i­pant can do­nate one yuan (14 US cents) af­ter run­ning one kilo­me­ter, ac­cord­ing to the or­ga­nizer, real es­tate com­pany Sino-Ocean Group Ltd. It said in July the project hoped to help 25 veteran sol­diers, each of whom would re­ceive 1,200 yuan every year. This would fund phys­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tions, out­pa­tient treat­ment and pur­chase pills.
