SHANGRI-LA HOTEL, CHANGCHUN ORGANISES 2ND SUMMER CHARITY RUN FOR VILLAGE SCHOOL

Changchun, 30 June 2015 – Shangri-La Hotel, Changchun will hold its second Changchun Charity Run at Moon Lake National Forest Park on 19 July 2015 to raise funds for Xin Jia Village School in Yitong County.

Over 500 local citizens and foreigners will participate in the event to help improve the school’s teaching facilities.  The charity run will highlight a 5-kilometre Colour Bubble Mini Marathon in the forest and a Summer Carnival Party.

As an important themed activity of China’s Changchun Summer Relaxation Festival, Shangri-La’s second charity run will provide a healthy, trendy, fun, enjoyable and caring experience.

The 5-kilometre charity run with colour bubbles is completely different from a traditional marathon: all participants are required to start through a 30-metre-long bubble foam pool on the grassland, run through the forest filled with fun games and finish with an exciting bubble carnival party.  The whole journey is like experiencing a bubble bath from head to toe.  Instead of pursuing speed, the charity run emphasises the importance of “participation, entertainment and love”.

The Color Bubble Mini Marathon is for adults only.  The entry fee is RMB198 per person, which includes round-trip transportation, a T-shirt, the bubble run experience, number cloth, water and sandwich.  Interested participants may register and buy tickets at the hotel’s Shen Café.
