TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Having a strong immune system is very important to personal health, especially at a time like the present when the Wuhan coronavirus is spreading like wildfire. Taipei’s Geotechnical Engineering Office (GEO) has been committed to enhancing the public’s immunity to diseases by promoting the 92km Taipei Grand Trail hike.

The GEO said in a press release on Friday (Feb. 28) that it first promulgated the Taipei Grand Trail route in 2018 and has been encouraging the public to complete the hike by awarding finishers with certificates and free towels. To spice up the campaign, the office launched a new activity on Oct. 28 last year that works with an app, enabling finishers to not only receive certificates and towels but also participate in a lottery, according to the release.
