Run Jordan Inaugurates First Ever Women's Race
Under the Patronage of HRH Princess Dana Firas and Under the Slogan "Run For You", Run Jordan Launches its First Women's Race, the 2019 Samsung Women's Race.
Run Jordan created this initiative to encourage women of all ages and from different backgrounds and fitness levels to exercise and experience first-hand the health benefits of running, as well as to promote a healthy lifestyle. The race includes two categories: 2.5 km and 5 km.
"The 2019 Samsung Women's Race is the first race of its kind to be launched by Run Jordan, and is geared especially towards women empowerment. The slogan "Run for You" has been coined to highlight our aim at enabling women to reach their fullest potential, and to encourage women from all walks of life to adopt a healthy lifestyle. This race also sheds light on the important role that females play in our society, and celebrates their achievements,"
"I would like to extend my gratitude to our sponsors, including Samsung Electronics Levant, Aquafina, Siniora Food Industries, and our strategic partner the Greater Amman Municipality (GAM), and salute police and security forces that have always been incredibly supportive of all our races and events.
I would also like to commend Ms. Haya Awad on the positive role that she has played in supporting the race objectives; as a distinguished activist in the local society and a firm believer of the sports impact on our lives, we are proud of her role as the ambassador of the 2019 Samsung Women's Race," continued Al Kurd.
Dana Dahbour, Samsung Levant's Corporate Citizenship Manager commented saying: "We are delighted to support Run Jordan and its different events and races, as this is a strategic partnership that we are very proud of. This will continue with our sponsorship of this important, first of its kind race, and we are honored to be part of its success," . "Our support to this race, which has been created especially for women, reflects our commitment in supporting initiatives that focus on women development, especially when it comes to empowering and supporting
females, regardless of their background, ages or positions. This philosophy is not only limited to our company's female employees , but has also emerged as one of the main goals of our corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategy, which covers a number of issues that directly affect women. This includes the importance of sports, and the effect it has on our mental, physical and psychological states, which are the pillars of a healthy foundation", she added.
The 2019 Samsung Women's Race aims at growing into an important and vital platform for female sporting activities, and targets women from all ages. In addition to playing a role in discovering a new generation of rising stars in the sport of running, and helping them compete on regional and international levels under Jordan's name.
