To promote the 3rd Sustainable Development Goal (SGDs) – a healthy live and promotion of wellbeing for everyone at all ages, about 30 colleagues and their families, including Managing Director Todd Olson, gathered to supports this great cause.
Yuko Okayasu, Head of Marketing and Communications, Japan at Cushman & Wakefield, said: “I hope that all women upon their wish will be able to continue childcare and/or work while maintaining the quality of life; and that an inclusive society will be formed where individuals are be able to live in wellbeing. I would be honoured if participation in this event could contribute to raising social awareness about the breast cancer. The topic is being reported in media in Japan and around the world, but there are still things we can do like improving the breast cancer screening issue.
Also, the event was a fun experience to exercise together with colleagues with whom I work together, as well as their families. I was surprised to find out that our team has quite a number of relentless long-distance runners."
