Seung-il Hope Foundation organized a special campaign ahead of the groundbreaking ceremony for the Lou Gehrig’s disease nursing hospital.
On the 25th, the Seungil Hope Foundation successfully completed the 4th Miracle365 With Ice Relay Run campaign with over 250 participants and volunteers, hosted by MC Prime, at Nodleseom Lawn Plaza in Seoul. Isaacs Toast participated in the campaign as the main sponsor, and added a special touch by donating KRW 30 million to build an ALS nursing hospital.
This is the fourth edition of the campaign, which started in 2018, and the participation fee will be used to build the first ALS hospital in Korea. It is also contributing to the formation of a new donation culture in the sense that anyone can easily and enjoyably participate in donations. Through the relay run format, people with Lou Gehrig’s disease are united in cheering and cheering for those with Lou Gehrig’s disease, continuing the chain of hope for the construction of the Lou Gehrig’s Hospital.
The With Ice Relay Run requires teams of six runners to run 1.5 kilometers each for a total of 9 kilometers, as well as play fun mission games before passing the baton to the next runner. Dress codes expressing each team’s personality and batons prepared by the participants themselves, combined with individuality and fun, enriched the atmosphere of the campaign.
Ha-kyung Kim, CEO of Isaac Toast, said, “We are very grateful that Isaac Toast was able to participate in the construction of the ALS Hospital. It is especially meaningful that our employees were able to participate in the donation campaign at the end of the year. We hope that people with ALS and their families will be able to find strength.”
Sean, Co-CEO of Seungil Hope Foundation, participated as a relay runner and also made a gesture of gratitude to the participants. “We are so grateful that Isaac Toast is interested in building an ALS hospital and donated 30 million won. I am especially grateful that we are able to do this in advance of the groundbreaking ceremony for the hospital, which has been a longtime dream of Park Seung-il, who is suffering from Lou Gehrig’s disease, and the Seung-il Hope Foundation. We promise to do our best to repay everyone’s support and ask for your continued interest in the future.”
Meanwhile, the Seung-il Hope Foundation will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the Lou Gehrig Nursing Hospital on December 13, 13 years after establishing the foundation in 2011 for patients with severe muscular rare diseases such as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Through this hospital, the foundation is promoting various fundraising and support projects to provide specialized medical and nursing care services to patients.
