EMPOWERING women is one of the main missions for Brunei’s upcoming first-ever all-ladies charity fun run which will be happening on May 17 called ‘She Runs’. The event will have two categories – 3.7km and 5km.

To accomplish the mission, The Body Shop has come on board to support the event. The Body Shop will be giving away exclusive gift packs with two years free membership to the first 200 participants and exclusive discount vouchers to the remaining participants.

On May 17, The Body Shop will set up a feet pampering station for participants after they have completed their route. Participants can use the products and enjoy the benefits of the excellent feet range from The Body Shop.

Zaslin Maidin, General Manager of The Body Shop said, “It is our pleasure to be part of the event. We’ve always seen ourselves as a lot more than just a beauty company. We passionately campaign for the protection of the environment, contribute as much as we can to local communities and supporting this event will also encourage women to focus on self-esteem. To us, beauty is a feeling, a natural way of being, where character, self-esteem and humour are freely expressed and celebrated. That’s the soul of beauty. It’s not just about looking beautiful. It’s about exuding a vibrant attitude to life.”

Rachel Lee, Fitness Manager of Fitness Zone and Operation Manager of She Runs also commented, “As a woman, my daily beauty regimen comes from having my own style, living my own way and knowing my own mind. I am full of confidence and belief that a healthy and active lifestyle can be pursued by all women. I hope to be able to encourage more ladies to start their exercise routine as it will definitely boost their confidence, just as it did to me. To me, one’s outer beauty is not enough, beauty is all about confidence, charisma and character. Therefore I am grateful to have The Body Shop as part of our ladies’ event who shares the same definition of beauty as I do.”

Present at the official ceremony was a local artist, Maria Grace Koh, also known as Eia. Eia will be one of the speakers giving a speech on the morning of May 17. At 22 years of age, she is now a singer-songwriter known for her songs of different genres.

“I think it’s great that Fitness Zone has teamed up with various associations and sponsors in organising a women exclusive fun run that supports a great cause, as well as promoting and encouraging a healthy lifestyle, inner and outer beauty, self-confidence, and empowerment. It’s a time where ladies who may be a little more self-conscious will have the freedom to feel comfortable in the environment, and this also ties in to Fitness Zone converting their Serusop branch into an all-women’s club,” said Maria Grace Koh.
