So what did you do over the weekend.. as for me and my mini me, we were up at 4.30am and out of the house at 5am to join a total of 1,035 fun run/ fitness enthusiasts at the Symphony Life Berhad’s first ever fun run event, That ‘70s Run at the Taman Tasik Prima in Puchong.
Many participants came dressed up in their ‘70s-themed best look, to take part in the 5.8 km run. My daughter and I were just simply dressed in the given shirt and my sports gear..
Tan Sri Azman Yahya, Executive Chairman of Symphony Life Berhad, flagged off the run at 7.30 AM.
There were two checkpoints for participants to refuel with bananas, mineral water and 100 plus and where participants were encouraged to groove to the disco tunes of the 70’s claiming our wristbands to prove that we have been there at the checkpoints before receiving our pretty cool retro-designed medals at the finish line. I just love the lanyard with retro flower power design and the revolving volkswagen type of van famous in the 70's
After the run, we picked up our food packs consisting of a cream bun and a little pack of chrysanthemum tea and some vouchers to spend at the variety of food trucks available at the mini fest and participated in other exciting activities planned for the event.
Mr Stewart Tew, Chief Operating Officer (Sales and Marketing), Symphony Life Berhad, said that the event was aimed at bringing families and friends together as well as to create awareness on the importance of having a healthy lifestyle. It is also to bring the residents of Taman Tasik Prima Puchong closer together and fosters good neighbourhood interaction.
There were also free health checks done by Lincoln University College to check up on diabetes, BMI (Obesity checks), and blood pressure. Arthritis Foundation Malaysia (AFM) also supported the event and an exhibition to raise awareness about arthritis.
There were also many entertaining activities such as giant bubbles play, street clown performance, an inflatable playground, face painting, colouring workshop, and photo booths to pose at were also available for participants of all ages to enjoy....
The on-stage activities commenced with the selection of the best-dressed participant awards, where Abu Azmir Kassim took the crown for male category, while Samantha Sharminie and Dinesh Roshaut won the female and children categories respectively. They won RM800 worth of Parksons vouchers, sponsored by Golden Prima Builders Sdn. Bhd.
Participants also took part in some mini games and contests, and lucky draws with prizes worth of up to RM10, 000 were up for grabs. The grand prizes included a TV, bicycles, smartphone, tablet, and more.
Symphony Life's That 70’s Run was a success thanks to the participants, the sponsors and partners, which included Garmin Malaysia, Salonpas, Eagle Brand, Tongee, Hung Fuk Tong, Sunway Lagoon, Running Malaysia Magazine, Ultron, Z Fitness, Lincoln University College, Arthritis Foundation Malaysia, Ideamax, RunningEvents.my, Getwell Physiotheraphy Centre, and more.
Symphony Life Berhad has a good presence in the Taman Tasik Prima area and they plan to continue to enhance the township with a variety of modern developments. such as their premium, low density Elevia Residence with only 34 units of 3 storey villas with each home fronting a linear garden that comes with a private lift and 128 units of condominium with 3 lifts serving 6 condo units per floor. This project is scheduled for completion in Q3 2017. This development coupled with an upcoming lakefront mall, will add plenty of vibrancy to the neighbourhood. An added advantage is the new interchange to Taman Tasik Prima that has made travelling to this part of Puchong quite a breeze.
