ALPHAMEGA RUN AS ONE 2021 returns for the 6th consecutive year
A press conference for the presentation of the running event ALPHAMEGA RUN AS ONE was held the morning of October 21st, at the headquarters of ALPHAMEGA Hypermarkets in Nicosia. ALPHAMEGA RUN AS ONE returns in its 2021 VIRTUAL edition on the 22nd of October, with the aim to promote the importance of a balanced diet and regular exercise for our children. The running event is organized within the framework of the Hypermarkets’ Corporate Social Responsibility program “Child, Nutrition & Health”, with the collaboration of the Cyprus Dietetic & Nutrition Association.
The aim of the event remains the same, namely to give the opportunity to children aged between 9 and 12 to refer to a registered member of the Association and obtain a personalized nutrition plan, based on their individual needs. For this reason, proceeds from the race’s participations are used for this sole purpose.
The press conference was attended by the President of the Cyprus Dietetic & Nutrition Association, sponsor representatives and media representatives. Natasa Constantinidou, Director of Communication and CSR of ALPHAMEGA Hypermarkets, introduced the running event to the audience and referred to its aim, characteristics and virtual edition. Following last year’s success, the 2021 edition will also hold virtually, owing to the pandemic. The virtual nature of the running event helps maintain social distancing and allows the spread of the message “We run for our kids” from all parts of Cyprus, despite the difficulties and contemporary challenges.
Later in the press conference, Mrs Constantinidou underlined the contribution of the Cyprus Dietetic & Nutrition Association, the sponsors and supporter and thanked them for their support.
This year’s grand sponsors are Deloitte and Primetel, the event’s supporter is Landas Colour, and the sponsors are: Dixan, Somat, ACS Courier, NexTech, Universal Life, Holland & Barrett and RCB Bank. The Fun Run of 1K is once again activated along with the dairy company Charalambides Christis.
Speakers at the conference were: Eleni Andreou, President of the Cyprus Dietetic & Nutrition Association, Michalis Michailides, Partner in Deloitte, Evripides Kyriakou, Primetel’s Direct Sales Manager and Constantinos Diakou, Brand Manager of the dairy company Charalambides Christis.
