Lakeside Marina in collaboration with Happy FM launched the 7th edition of the annual 6 km Family Fun Run and Walk on Tuesday, 7th February, 2017 at the Silver Star Tower. The event is aimed at bringing together families, individuals and schools to promote healthy lifestyle and celebrate Ghana’s 60th Independence Day through physical exercises. This year’s event is set to take place on Monday, 6th March, 2017 at the Lakeside Marina Park, Lakeside Estate.
According to Mr. Naveen Singh, Head of radio of Global Media Alliance “As we have established over the years, the idea behind the annual 6 km Family Fun Run is to provide a good opportunity for families, individuals and schools to exercise and socialize while engaging in healthy activities”.

It is in this regard that Lakeside Marina and Happy FM provide that avenue through the Family Fun Run to keep fit and stay healthy. Mr.Naveen urged families, individuals and schools to come and participate in their numbers and take advantage of the numerous benefits the event offers.
