Mr Kwame Gyan, Head of Brands Communication and Marketing of Global Media Alliance Broadcast Company who are organisers of the event said the main aim of the annual Corporate Run is to provide a better platform for corporate institutions and their staff to interact and socialise while engaging in healthy activities.
He said: “Due to the demanding nature of most jobs, it is almost impossible for people to make time for exercising and other healthy activities, hence the collaboration with Japan Motors to encourage the culture of keeping fit.’’
Mr Gyan said a CEO could only participate when it has not less than 20 employees on payroll.
Mrs Hilda Peasah, Marketing Manager of Japan Motors said the objective of the two companies for organising such an event is to promote healthy lifestyle and provide a platform for all corporate bodies to interact and network outside the business environment.
“This is the sixth time we are organising this event and we are hoping to witness more organisations and individuals partake in the event,” she said.
Mrs Peasah urged corporate institutions and individuals who did not get the chance to participate last year to join the upcoming exercise that would promote a peaceful elections.
