Promoting Healthy Living and Giving Back to the Community

AIA Hong Kong has been active in the Médecins Sans Frontières Orienteering Competition (MSFOC) for 16 consecutive years. The Company aims to promote healthy living through activity, while raising funds to support MSF's medical support services. This year, more than 400 AIA financial planners, staff, their families, as well as customers supported this charitable sports event, raising around HK$580,000. AIA Hong Kong won the “Top Fundraising Award” and “Corporate Trophy”, and was also named one of the “Top 10 Most Supporting Organisations” in recognition of its fundraising, its level of participation, and its outstanding performance in the competition.
Mr Jacky Chan, CEO of AIA Hong Kong & Macau, said, “As ‘The Real Life Company', AIA is a committed advocate of healthy living – it is the primary focus of our community service efforts. We have actively promoted the ‘AIA Vitality' wellness programme in recent years to encourage the public to adopt a healthier lifestyle., We have supported MSFOC since its inception in 2002, for 16 years now. It has enabled us to stand united and lead by example in adopting a healthy lifestyle, while also giving us the opportunity to build team spirit and raise much needed funds for MSF's important work in medical relief. It echoes our brand promise of helping people live healthier, better and happier lives.”
