"One Family, One Walk" (壹家人 壹起走——纪念5•12 同行汶川路) is a charity event centering around a 5.12-kilometer walk made by 100 celebrities, earthquake victims, and rescue workers and their families.
The event's most prominent attendees will be martial-arts master and actor Jet Li (李連杰) as well as Chinese-American actor Daniel Wu (吳彥祖) who will reportedly make the symbolic march each wearing only one shoe. The unworn shoe from each pair will be auctioned on Taobao, with proceeds going toward earthquake-relief efforts.
"One Family, One Walk" is a joint effort of the Red Cross Society of China, the Chinese Communist Youth League Central Committee, the Red Cross Society of China, the Jet Li One Foundation Project, the Sichuan Provincial Promotion Bureau, and the Aba Prefecture People's Government.
