The “Walk Be Istanbul” competition, implemented in cooperation with Samsung and Spor Istanbul, a subsidiary of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality, offers Istanbulites the opportunity to win prizes as they walk, and will continue until April 16.
The aim of the project is to encourage the residents of Istanbul to walk. By downloading the “Yürü Be İstanbul” application to their mobile phones, users can participate in the competition in 4 different time zones of the day and increase their chances of winning a prize by walking whenever they wish.
Within the scope of the competition, a total of 40 people who enter the top 10 in each time zone will win gift certificates and discount coupons from Samsung. Users must complete the task called “Galaxy Walk” to participate in the contest. Afterwards, users can see their place on the leaderboard in 4 different time zones according to the number of steps they take in different time zones of the day. Until April 16 (23:59), the first 5 users with the most steps on each leaderboard will receive a gift card, and the next 5 users will receive a discount card.
