Run for your life, and Save the Children 

BDRUNNERS, a running community based in Dhaka, and Reckitt Benckiser (RB) Bangladesh jointly organised a 5-km charity run on the morning of Friday, December 2. 

The event titled – “RunFriday 2: Save the Children Challenge” – started at 7:30 am in the city's Purbachol Balu Bridge area where nearly 200 running enthusiasts participated.

RB will donate £15 (15 pounds) for every kilometre covered by the runners to Save the Children.

The program also included a 5-day Endomondo running challenge for the same cause that started on November 28, 2016. A total of 146 runners from across the country participated in this challenge using the Endomondo app, a workout activity tracking application of smartphones. RB will similarly donate for the total distance of nearly 2,000 km covered on foot by the participants under this challenge.

The top three runners of the event were presented medals while achievement certificates were awarded to all participants.

RB, an MNC, will hand over the total donation to Save the Children, a global organisation fighting to eradicate child death and promoting healthy living among children and their families.

RunFriday is a monthly event of BDRUNNERS where running enthusiasts get together to run, socialise and promote running as an element of a healthy way of life.
