Wilmar Africa is proud to sponsor this year’s Women’s 5km Run with their most cherished brand, Frytol on October 30.
According to the organisers, due to the Covid-19 challenges, the event would be held virtually with a few special guests in attendance.
It will be a hybrid of a virtual and in person race with a selected number doing the race in person, and it promises to be a unique and special activity as attractive prizes are at stake for winners and exciting performances.
The Race Director, Mrs. Catherine Morton, said often times, women strive to be superwomen, but some days can be overwhelming.
She stated, “The lack of time, support or energy can sometimes throw women off balance. It is in this regard that Frytol believes that a life of goodness is one to be pursued as women strive to achieve wellness in every sphere of their lives.
“For Frytol, Goodness means taking care of your well-being and therefore every woman deserves a life of Goodness which includes a balance in their physical, spiritual, financial, emotional, mental and maternal health etc.”
According to Mrs. Patience Oforiwa Mpereh, Head of Marketing, Wilmar Africa Limited, Frytol coming on board as main sponsors of the Women’s 5km Run/Walk is a clarion call to all women as they find themselves multitasking on daily basis and giving love to all around them except themselves.
“Being passionate about getting things done; juggling so much – from raising responsible children, to taking care of their homes, being great wives and working careers to cause social change; they should never forget their mental health.”
The Women’s 5km Run is an annual non-profit women’s only event by Activly Sports that brings together women to walk and run with the aim of throwing light on social issues affecting women and supporting women charities in Ghana.
It is themed: “Together we run the world”, and the programme is also to promote women’s maternal and mental health, aside the fun and leisure, as well as making friends and business contacts.
