A ‘3D walkathon’ in December will aim to promote regular exercise, with all proceeds donated to a children’s hospital in Yangon
A FAMILY-ORIENTATED day out will take place on 6 December at People’s Park in Yangon with the goal of promoting healthy lifestyle choices, said event organisers during a press conference yesterday.
The activities will include a new style of a walkathon known as a ‘3D adventure walk’, which organisers hope will promote regular exercise. The event is being hosted by Myanmar’s leading retailers, City Mart Holdings Co (CMHL) and leading food and beverage producer in ASEAN, Fraser and Neave Ltd.
The event was held for the first time last year and attracted 2,000 people at People’s Park.
“We expect even more participants this year because the event will include a totally new experience – the 3D Adventure Walk,” said Mr Prapas Rattanapas of Fraser and Neave.
The walkathon will raise awareness about the importance of families staying active and the enjoyment of doing activities together as a family, said Daw May Zin Soe Htet, marketing director of CMHL.
The event is open to all ages, and those interested may register at Marketplace City Mart, City Mart (Thamine), City Mart Junction Maw Tin and Ocean Super Centre Shwegondine between 16 November and 2 December.
The registration fees is K2,500 (US$2) per form, which includes up to three people to participate.
All registration fees will be donated to Yankin Children’s Hospital.
