Jing An Shangri-La West Shanghai Successfully Hosts Third Climb For Vertical Fun Run

Jing An Shangri-La, West Shanghai

Jing An Shangri-La, West Shanghai, which offers guests the ideal place to soak in the city view of the downtown business centre and beyond from the top of Shanghai, turns into a venue for a unique charity event in the form of a vertical fun run, held on 14 October 2017. 

  

309 runners conquered 1,625 steps to reach the finish line at level 60. The event continued as a Jing An Shangri-La, West Shanghai corporate social responsibility tradition and donated a total of RMB 99,000 to Children’s Medical Centre. A male runner from China stole the show, setting a new record for the vertical fun run with a time of 8 minutes and 55 seconds.  

  

All proceeds donated to the Shanghai Children’s Medical Centre will assist with the medical treatment of underprivileged children. In addition to the charity benefit, Jing An Shangri-La, West Shanghai hopes to promote a healthy and positive lifestyle through this event. The stresses of big city urban living demands that we spend most of our time and energy at work, neglecting healthy living habits like proper nutrition, sleep and exercise. Climb for Hope Vertical Fun Run presents a light-hearted and fun approach to exercise, bringing together families and the community to climb together.  

  

Participants this year came from the public and participating partner communities – CEO Roundtable on Cancer-China and Jing An Kerry Centre. All were welcome to participate, as amateur and elite runners all climbed together for a good cause. Everyone was a winner, with each receiving a congratulatory completion medal presented at the finishing line.
