Bahrain has been ranked among the world’s top 10 fattest nations, taking the 10th spot, according to an international study. Out of the 28.3% of the children's population in Bahrain, 7.4% of them are Obese. Our aim is to raise awareness regarding this problem, by helping them to be more active and show support to the society through our corporate social responsibility. Product description
Riffa Views is the chosen place for the walkathon because of its spacious area. Sponsors are going to be targeted to contribute in the walkathon’s fundraising and support the cause. Several activities will go along in the event other than the walkathon such as kids corner, entertainment and dj, face painting, BMI tests and medical checkups. Volunteers like students from RCSI will be the event’s marshals. Product rationale
By spreading awareness regarding the obesity issue, we will help inject positivity into the children’s lives. Since this event will be successful in the humanitarian, we will be able to create an outdoor gym for children in one of the Southern Municipality’s schools and call it “The bnl Sports corner for children.”
The main project deliverables are:
Booking the place/walkathon area.
Getting the sponsors approvals.
Order Tshirts and prepare artworks.
Advertise on newspapers.
Recruiting volunteers and brief them.
Raise awareness regarding children’s obesity.
Create a healthy environment among the schoolchildren.
Raise a fund to create “The bnl Sports corner for children in schools (Outdoor Gym)”
