We also introduce you to a participant - who is bringing along his tiny 3 year old, and celebrated his wedding anniversary with his wife at this run last year - and what he has to say about the Hello Kitty Fun Run!
Organized runs have been gaining momentum in Singapore, with about a couple being held every month now.
But did you also know that these runs are a great way to expend some of your youngster’s energies and are great for family bonding? It also combats childhood obesity, another rising trend in Singapore.
Introducing the Hello Kitty SG Run 2015! If your youngster is a tad reluctant to sweat bucket-loads, the Hello Kitty motif should be incentive enough for little girls.
Till date, there has been a sizeable number of children aged 12 years and younger who have registered for the upcoming Christmas-themed Hello Kitty SG Run 2015, happening on 19 December at the Float at Marina Bay.
Studies and articles by sports medicine specialists state that running allows children to be physically active at their own pace, without the expectations of being naturally athletically inclined, pressure of being overweight or being in a competitive team sport.
Fun runs are a great starting point to introduce kids to this low-cost sport.
If that’s not a great reason enough to get fit together at this Fun Run, consider that they also have various activities such as manicures and meet-and-greet sessions with the Hello Kitty mascot. Come dressed in your creative and sporty outfits!
Jason Lim, a father of two, is a strong advocate of these fun runs.
At the inaugural Hello Kitty run held last year, he celebrated his wedding anniversary with his wife and this year, he intend to bring his little girl Jenna, who is only a tiny three years old, with him!
We had the pleasure of speaking to him, and this is his account of his run.
