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. In addition to participating in competitions, employees have helped operate FIT activities on a voluntary basis.

Though nearly all participation fees are used for socially meaningful activities, funds are donated to organizations that are unable to maintain funding for activities due awareness–related issues.
