A year after our first Race for Health for Race, 325 local school children enthusiastically participated in this year’s Fun Run, which was held on 30th
January at the Chrab Krahoam Primary School and the MeancheayLower Secondary School.
The event was organized jointly by the MJP Health and Education teams, with active support from teachers from both schools and the local authorities.
The Fun Run is a now an annual event, and forms part of MJP’s efforts to highlight the benefits of physical exercise to children, to share important health messages with our community, and to promote a new project on non-communicable diseases at Boeng Run Health Centre.
The race was organized in three categories of 4 distances: 3km for the secondary school boys, 2km for the secondary school girls, 1.5km for the primary school children, and 500m for the walkers from both schools. The top 3 from each running group received well-deserved prizes.
One message all the participants agreed on was: See you in 2021! Feb 2020
