Participated in the Financial Industry in Tokyo For Charity Run
Mizuho employees and their families participate in charity events planned and operated by Financial Industry in Tokyo (FIT) —a voluntary charitable organization established by financial services companies based in Tokyo— with the purpose of contributing local communities.
