Herbalife Nutrition has teamed up with national rower Joan Poh to break Singaporean’s health inertia and inspire healthy active living through the inaugural Herbalife Nutrition 40th Anniversary Virtual Run in Singapore. The Virtual run is held from 1 to 30 November 2020 as the highlight of the Get Moving with Good Nutrition Campaign.
Joan aims to rally Singaporeans to break out of their sedentary living habits and get moving once again to put themselves on the right track towards leading better, healthier lives.
Joan finished ninth in the women’s 2,000m single sculls in the 2018 Asian Games. She has been actively training for the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games before its postonement to 2021. Joan is now juggling her full time job as a nurse alongside her regular rowing schedule to keep her fitness levels and spirits up in preparation for the upcoming Olympic Games.
Participants who signed up for the Run can participate as an individual or as a team with 4km, 24km, and 40km distances for the individual race category or 24km, 40km, 80km and 100km distances for the team race category. Participants can volunteer to pledge an additional amount to Herballife Nutrition Foundation, which will be channeled to the Casa Herbalife Nutrition programme beneficiaries. Participants who complete the run will receive a limited edition Herbalife Nutrition 40th Anniversary Virtual Run medal and an e-certificate.
To help participants prepare for the run, Herbalife Nutrition has lined up a series of virtual run training content, including run training sessions led by Samantha Clayton, vice president of Sports Performance and Fitness Education at Herbalife Nutrition, online “fit sessions” led by Herbalife Nutrition’s partner athletes, and sports nutrition talks by Dr Dana Ryan, Herbalife Nutrition’s Director of Sport Performance and Education.
