Olympic marathon silver medalist Yuko Arimori also attended the event in which 50 runners participated. KDDI has launched the project through which au users can donate 1 yen for each 1 kilometer they walk or run, after downloading the company’s online service “au Smart Sports Run&Walk.” The money raised will be used to buy seeds of bitter gourd and morning glory to distribute for free at au shops as part of its greening project. KDDI said that 2.7 million yen has been raised since the project's launch in February.© Japan Today
