One Step, One Dream is our charity walk initiative to raise funds for Yao Foundation and to promote well-being amongst our people. 7,618 PwC people and 735 new graduate offerees participated in 2018, raising more than 380,000 RMB.

This fun and healthy activity involves teams walking or running as many steps as possible over two weeks. Steps are tracked using the WeChat Sports feature, and the Tencent charity platform allows participants to donate their steps during the initiative. This created a real buzz both in and out of the office – and on-line – with people keen to go the extra mile and outstep their colleagues for a great cause!

In total, close to one billion steps were contributed across China, Hong Kong and Macau offices, demonstrating PwC’s values of working together and making a difference.

The funds raised from this event were donated to the Yao Foundation to purchase basketball kits (basketball stands, basketballs, shoes and uniforms) for 40 primary schools across China, enabling thousands of children to pursue their basketball dreams.

PwC employees in Beijing walk around to raise funds for the Yao Foundation.

The Yao Foundation aims to promote the all-round development of Chinese youth by providing opportunities in education, sports skills, health and self-esteem.
