Women of Wellness (WOW) is a brainchild of Mudzalifah Anuar from Singapore. Started in 2014 with a 5km fun run for all ladies, this year on the 25th October, 7am, WOW RUN 2015 was celebrated in five countries; Singapore | Malaysia | Indonesia | Australia | USA
The theme for this year is Embrace Womanhood.
In Singapore and Malaysia, the 5 km run was cancelled due to poor air quality as a result of the haze that clouded both Singapore and Greater Kuala Lumpur for many many days. In Malaysia, despite run cancellation, a few other planned activities were moved indoors so that the sisters could enjoy the day. The ladies had zumba, fitness challenges and a dialogue session on women empowerment as shared by Emmy and The Weekend Runner
In Jakarta, Australia and USA the run kicked off awesomely.
Here are some FACES of WOW SISTERS from WOW RUN 2015. With the different time zones, the run and activities started at 7am accordingly:
Watch the girls sweating out & having loads of fun
Something a little bit more serious after that. There was a women empowerment dialogue session talking about leadership, brought to you by Gorgeous Geeks.
With all the excitement and activities, we feel WOW RUN should continue as how Mudzalifah aspires it to be.
During the fitness challenges in Malaysia, an ultra marathoner made a significant observation. The ladies could really enjoy themselves and push themselves to do perform fitness activities.
True, some ladies are shy and have certain requirements to perform fitness activities. We should continue to understand their requirements and provide suitable environment for them.
Congrats to all organisers and sisters for making the spirit of fitness among us BORDERLESS.
