Burgan Bank, one of the leading contributors to sustainability and progress in the Kuwaiti community, is sponsoring the 5 KM “KBA Night Run”; a run held under the umbrella of the Kuwait Banking Association. The run is scheduled to take place on April 14, 2018 at 7 pm at Murooj complex. As part of Burgan Bank’s ongoing commitment to encourage sports as a gateway to maintaining a healthier lifestyle, the bank encourages the participation of all families, athletes and avid runners to sign up for the much anticipated marathon.

Running under the theme of ‘Get set, Glow ‘, the 5 KM run will be a first of its kind event as it takes place at night accommodated by particular gear to glow in the dark, targeting both genders of all age groups at any level of fitness. Organized at Murooj complex, the run will be accompanied by a specialized exhibition of fitness which will bring together health clubs, relevant food companies and sponsors.

The event is aimed at enabling both adults and youth explore sports and fitness as a means to leading healthier mind-sets and overall lifestyle. In participation with other banks in Kuwait, Burgan Bank’s contribution rests as part of its corporate social responsibility towards supporting all genres of people with significant emphasis on youth empowerment and supporting athletes’ passion for running while facilitating lasting positive change in the society.

Races encompass several areas of challenges that result in therapeutic benefits ranging from physical, mental and emotional developments. Participants are required to train and equip themselves with a holistic approach that involves nutritious food, mental focus, stamina, strength and endurance in order to enhance performance. Backed by the belief that better choices make for better lives in the long run, such recreational activities engage the mind and body to unite with other likeminded individuals on the same road to achieving a common goal of personal enrichment and happiness.

As a determined advocate of societal advancement and wellbeing through innovative health initiatives, Burgan Bank had previously sponsored and hosted similar nationwide sporting events namely the Burgan Bank Tri Festival, a successful celebration of sports, healthy lifestyles, fitness and fun as well as the Spark Marathon, Kuwait's biggest charity race.
