AIA Hong Kong Participates in the “Médecins Sans Frontières Orienteering Competition” for the 15th Consecutive Year Promoting Healthy Living and Giving Back to the Community

14 March 2016
AIA Hong Kong has actively participated in the “Médecins Sans Frontières Orienteering Competition” (MSF OC) for 15 consecutive years since MSF OC's inception in 2002. The Company aims to promote healthy living and support humanitarian relief work through participating in this event. This year, a total of about 900 people from AIA, including financial planners, staff, their family members and customers supported this charitable sports event, successfully raising over HK$1million for MSF. AIA Hong Kong won the “Top Fundraising Award”, "All Categories Champion Award", "Corporate Trophy" as well as an award for being among the “Top 10 Most Supporting Organisations” in recognition of its donation amount and participation rate, as well as for its outstanding performance in the competition.
Mr. Jacky Chan, Chief Executive Officer of AIA Hong Kong and Macau, said, “AIA is committed to advocating healthy living as a primary focus of its community efforts, in keeping with our brand promise as ‘The Real Life Company'. We have supported MSF OC for 15 years in a row. Besides encouraging participants to live healthy and active lives, this event gives us the opportunity to build team spirit while raising much needed funds to support MSF's important medical relief work. AIA launched the ‘AIA Vitality' programme last year, presenting customers with comprehensive and instant incentives to encourage them to adopt healthier lifestyles. This perfectly echoes the key objective of this orienteering competition, which is to inspire the community to pursue healthier habits amid their hectic lifestyles.”
Financial Planners and Staff of AIA Hong Kong, their families and the Company's customers took part in MSF's charitable sports event to support humanitarian relief work and promote healthy living. Together, they successfully raised over HK$1 million for MSF.
Wet and cold weather did not dampen the spirit and enthusiasm of the AIA Hong Kong team.
