Cold Storage to kick off inaugural experiential kids run under CSR effort

Kids, take the challenge! Ms Alice Lau (Upscale Director of GCH Retail (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd shares about the importance of nutrition and healthy foods in children's development.
Everyone has got their busy lifestyle and even children with their time table on education and other activities. How about checking out the Malaysia's first kids run towards healthy eating and living. Cold Storage Malaysia has announced the date of its inaugural Kids Grow & Glow Run 2017 for this coming September, a fun run for children and their families to increase awareness on the importance of eating and living healthily. The first-ever event of its kind in Malaysia, the Kids Grow & Glow Run will feature the different stages of growth, bringing participants on a trail of experiential learning of life's evolution from childhood to becoming a healthy individual. 

"As the 'fresh food people', we know how important adequate nutrition and an active lifestyle are in ensuring the health and well-being of individuals, particularly in rapidly developing children. Cold Storage has always aimed to inspire our customers in making healthy food choices for the whole family through our fresh and high quality products. We are very excited to extend this commitment through this inaugural Kids Grow & Glow Run, where we encourage not just parents but the kids themselves to make healthier eating and lifestyle choices as they grow," said Ms. Alice Lau, Upscale Director of GCH Retail (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd.

"Apart from injecting some fun and excitement into encouraging a healthier and more active lifestyle amongst our customers, we also believe that no child should be left out in learning to make the right choices in their eating habits and daily life. We look forward to hosting the children from Rumah Juara PJ at our first Kids Grow & Glow Run to help nurture a healthier and more active society," Ms. Lau added.
