Infinitus Advocates Daily Walk for 10,000 Steps

HONG KONG, Aug. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — A recent research in UK has found that 36 is the age when we suddenly realize the importance of health. Rather than waiting for a health warning call, we might as well protect our lifeline proactively.

With substantial proof of direct linkage between health and walking, Infinitus, MCMIA Foundation and Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) jointly initiate the “Infinitus Daily Walk for 10,000 Steps” Campaign to advocate walking as a daily habit, and the kick-off ceremony took place at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center on 14 August.

Vice Commissioner of State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine of P.R.C. Mr Yu Wenming, Secretary for MCMIA Foundation Ms. Vivien Chou, Director of Exhibitions Market Development, HKTDC, Ms. Loretta Wan, and Senior Vice President of LKK Health Products Group (LKKHPG) Mr. Harry Yeung, signed on the giant T-shirt at the ceremony to unveil the “Infinitus Daily Walk for 10,000 Steps” Campaign. Meanwhile, Infinitus also launched the “Most Beautiful 10,000-Step Walking Path Award”, and called on HK citizens to vote at http://www.facebook.com/InfinitusHongKong.

“Daily Walk for 10,000 Steps” originates from Infinitus’ unique health philosophy. “Infinitus” is the core brand of LKKHPG, and it has formulated a set of simple yet feasible practice guidance called “Missing Link of Four Regulations” as follows to foster the nurturing of healthier lifestyles among the public.

  • Diet: More vegetable less meat, eat until 70% full
  • Living: Power nap for 20 minutes and sleep before 23:00
  • Exercise: Daily walk for 10,000 steps
  • Emotion: Positive thinking

To promote “Daily Walk for 10,000 Steps”, Infinitus has already organized “Infinitus World Walking Day” in the Chinese mainland since 2010 and harvested great popularity and fruitful results. This year, the event started in June, and would walk into 12 cities all year long. Moreover, it is also coming to Hong Kong in the near future, and inviting HK citizens and foreign visitors to experience the fun and health through walking.

At the ceremony, Mr. Harry Yeung, Senior Vice President of LKKHPG and Spokesperson of Infinitus, said,” Through promoting walking at this year’s ICMCM, we aim to promote our health philosophy and the “walking day” to go global to more areas. Meanwhile, we hope more and more people from Hong Kong and abroad can become aware of benefits of walking and start to walk daily for better health.”
