About the Walking Challenge
In the age of 100-year life expectancy, extending healthy life expectancy has become a major social issue.
In order to achieve this, it is essential to improve one’s health by improving one’s daily lifestyle.、
The creation and establishment of a new culture of health are needed now more than ever.
In June 2018, under the philosophy of “creating physical and mental health for people and society from universities
Seven universities in Kyoto have come together to form an organization called Healthy Campus Kyoto Network.
The Walking Challenge was launched as the core event of this organization, with the aim of promoting and establishing a culture of health among a wide range of people.
From 2021, we will share the know-how cultivated by the Healthy Campus Kyoto Network and spread this movement throughout Japan through universities nationwide by co-sponsoring the event with the National Association of University Health Care Management and supporting it with the National Federation of University Co-operative Life Insurance Co-operatives.
