The third Dongguk Namsan Walkathon was held in Manhae plaza on October 12th, with the slogan “Walkathon for leukemia patients.” This event has been hosted for two years by University Relations & Development and the Dongguk University Alumni Association. This event is intended to improve health and meditate school days. It was originally targeted for the alumni, the school personnel and foreign students at school. However, other students could also participate in the event this year and about 250 people participated. From 4 p.m., the participants began the walk, on a route around Namsan on the mountain trail. After the walkathon was over, the participants had dinner in Sanglokwon and receied freebies. This year, all the money which was raised in the event was donated to a student who is struggling with leukemia. He is majoring in Public Administration and has been sufferingng from leukemia since 2012. Many campaigns like blood cell donation have been hosted on campus to help him. The walkathon was one of them. In total, about 2.3 million won was collected and this was donated to him to help cover the charges for an operation.
