On the 10th of February 2010, a press conference was held to announce the official launch of the upcoming CitiSpa Mizuno Power Run 2010 which will be held on the 28th of March 2010 at the Playground @ Big Splash East Coast Parkway.
For the first time, CITISPA is partnering with Mizuno to launch the inaugural CITISPA Power Run 2010 as to encourage women to power up their desire to embrace a healthy and meaningful lifestyle.
The event will be expecting a turn out of 3000 ladies participant. The participant will run alongside 100 special needs children from four selected Voluntary Welfare Organisations (VWOs). The children will be accompanied by CITISPA staff and runners throughout the 5km leisure run. The children will also be receiving a special goodie bag, sponsored by Mizuno, which consists of a pair of running shoes, running singlet, shorts and shoe bag.
This run would be a symbolic journey for the children as by completing the run and reaching the finishing line, it will symbolizes their overcoming of the challenges in spite of their physical limitations. The run will provide an opportunity for these children to run alongside with the rest of the community during the leisure run. Organizer hope to inspire these children to realise their full potential and to achieve their goal in life – likened to the crossing at the finishing line.
CITISPA aims to raise $100,000; Central Singapore CDC will also match a dollar for every dollar raised for the fund; the CITISPA–Central Singapore EmPower Fund 2010. These funds will go towards the four VWOs under Central Singapore CDC’s Comcare Local Network, in support of their children’s programmes.
The four beneficiaries are:
- Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF)
- Special Olympics (Singapore)
- Muscular Dystrophy Association Singapore (MDAS)
- The Down Syndrome Association (DSA).
Each participant will receive an attractive runner’s kit which includes
- Complimentary CITISPA face/ body/ spa treatment worth $128
