Guardian’s “Live Health Smart” campaign to encourage healthy living through smart choices will culminate in a Guardian Fun Run on Sept 17 in Kuala Lumpur.
Guardian Malaysia and Brunei marketing head Angela Teo said the campaign from now to July 31 and the run were the company’s response to the Guardian National Health Survey to determine what aspects of health were important to consumers.
Results showed that 74% of the respondents exercise, eat nutritious food and take supplements in order to stay fit and healthy.
The Guardian Fun Run to be held at Malaysia Agro Exhibition Park Serdang (MAEPS), Selangor, promises carnival games and on-stage entertainment for the whole family. Food trucks will be set up and there will also be free products to sample.
A lucky draw will offer prizes up to RM10,000 (for physical run participants only).
Part of the fun run’s proceeds will be donated to Suriana Welfare Society, which helps children in B40 communities, to set up their next Play and Learn Centre in Balakong.
The run will have three categories – a 3km Family Run, a 5km Neon Run and a 5km Virtual Run that will enable Guardian customers outside the Klang Valley to take part too.
Teo said: “Race pack collection has been scheduled for Sept 10 to 11 and registered runners will get loads of goodies, so sign up early.
“Also watch out for Guardian’s special ‘Live Health Smart’ promotions in July in addition to health videos and webinars on Guardian social media platforms.”
Registration is now open and early bird discounts are available for those signing up between now and July 24. From July 25 to Aug 15, tickets will be sold at RM60 for adults joining the 5km Neon Run.
