Lakeside Marina Park (LMP) in collaboration with Happy FM on Tuesday January 22 launched the 2019 Edition of the annual 6km and 10km Family Fun Run and Walk at Silver Star Towers, Airport. This marks the events’ 9th Edition since it’s inception in 2010.
This year’s event is set to take place on Wednesday, 6th March 2019 at the Lakeside Marina Park, Lakeside Estate.
According to organizers, this event is aimed at bringing together families, individuals and schools to promote a healthy lifestyle and celebrate Ghana’s 62nd Independence Day through physical exercises.
Speaking at the Launch of the event, Mr. Ernest Boateng, Chief Executive Officer of Global Media Alliance Group said “the main objective of the annual Family Fun Run is to provide a good opportunity for families, individuals and students to exercise and network.”
He added that due to the busy schedule of corporate officials in Ghana and the demand of family responsibilities, exercising becomes a challenging task. It is in this regard that Lakeside Marina and Happy FM provide that avenue through the Family Fun Run to keep fit and stay healthy.
Mr. Boateng urged families, individuals and schools to come and participate in their numbers and take advantage of the numerous benefits the event offers.
“We want to intensify awareness about the need for families to occasionally meet, exercise and engage in fun-filled activities in order to break the routine boredom of work and promote bonding among families. We therefore urge all families to pick up registration forms and participate in this worthy healthy event,” he said.
Commenting on the event, the Director of Lakeside Estate, Mr. Salah Kweku Kalmoni said “The Lakeside Marina/Happy FM Family Fun Run is a family event held annually on the Independence Day, to encourage healthy living among Ghanaians.”
“This collaboration with Happy FM over the years has been fruitful as the two companies share the same goals in promoting and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This event has over the years brought families and friends together to keep fit and to network. We are very glad as a company to be championing such a noble cause. We promise a more exciting event this year,” he disclosed.
He added that this year’s winners would receive prizes such as generators, printers, cameras and accessories among others.
