ALPHAMEGA RUN AS ONE returns for the sixth consecutive year
A press conference for the presentation of the ALPHAMEGA RUN AS ONE running event was held on Thursday at the headquarters of the ALPHAMEGA Hypermarkets in Nicosia.
ALPHAMEGA RUN AS ONE launched its 2021 Virtual Edition today, October 22, with the aim of promoting the importance of a balanced diet and regular physical activity for children. The running event is organized within the framework of the hypermarket corporate social responsibility program, “Child, Nutrition and Health”, in collaboration with the Cyprus Diet and Nutrition Association.
As in previous editions, the objective of the event is to allow children from 9 to 12 years old to refer to a registered member of the Association and to receive a personalized nutritional plan, according to their individual needs. For this reason, all profits from the race are used for this sole purpose.
The press conference was attended by the President of the Cyprus Diet and Nutrition Association, representatives of the sponsors and representatives of the media.
Presenting the running event, Natasa Constantinidou, Communication and CSR Director of ALPHAMEGA Hypermarkets, recalled the objective, characteristics and virtual edition of the event.
Following last year’s success, the 2021 edition will also be held virtually, due to the pandemic, to maintain social distancing while spreading the ‘We run for our children’ message to all parts of Cyprus.
Later in the press conference, Constantinidou highlighted the contribution of the Cypriot Diet and Nutrition Association, sponsors and supporters and thanked them for their support.
The big sponsors this year are Deloitte and Primetel, the event sponsor is Landas Color, and the sponsors are: Dixan, Somat, ACS Courier, NexTech, Universal Life, Holland & Barrett and RCB Bank. The dairy company Charalambides Christis once again supports the 1K Fun Run.
