HONG KONG, Jan. 24, 2024  /PRNewswire/ — The 31st Green Power Hike, organised by Green Power with AXA as the Title Sponsor for the first time, successfully took place on 13 January. As the largest annual charity hiking event on Hong Kong Island, it attracted more than 2,000 participants who joined a timed hiking challenge along the Hong Kong Trail with routes spanning 10km, 25km and 50km, respectively. Numerous teams in addition to individual participants from AXA, including executive committees, employees, financial consultants and customers joined the race, bringing the “Leave No Trace” belief to life and advocating a greener and more sustainable lifestyle. Moreover, members of AXA Hearts in Action, AXA’s employee volunteer team, took part as the event’s volunteers and cheerleading team to show their support for the Green Power Hike.
