e.tv Ghana in partnership with Japan Motors has launched the 4th edition of their annual 5km Corporate Run and Walk. This year’s event is scheduled for Saturday, September 20 at the Silver Star Tower in Accra at 6:00 am (G.O.T).
The event is aimed at bringing corporate institutions in Ghana together to promote health and networking through team-building and physical activities.
According to Mr. Ernest Arday, General Manager of e.TV Ghana “The main aim of the annual 5km Corporate Run is to provide a better platform for corporate officials to interact and socialize while engaging in healthy activities”.
Most Ghanaian Corporate Officers are not able to make time for such activities because of tight schedules and demanding jobs. We therefore hold this event annually to give them the opportunity to keep fit and stay healthy.
Registration is open to all corporate institutions and individuals interested in participating in the run.
Hilda Peasah, Marketing Manager of Japan Motors noted that “Our collaboration with e.TV Ghana works perfectly because the two companies share a common objective to promote healthy lifestyle through healthy activities while creating a unique platform for all corporate bodies to network and interact outside business settings”.
This is the 4th time we are organizing the Corporate Run with e.TV Ghana and we are hopeful to see an increase in the number of corporate bodies and individuals this year. We hope to have 400 participants.
I urge corporate institutions and all who wanted but did not get the chance to participate last year to join us this year for a wonderful healthy experience.
The 5KM run will start at 6:00 AM at the Silver Star Tower, through to 37, past the Airport Roundabout and back to the Silver Star Tower.
Other activities to be held on the day include an exhibition, an awards ceremony, and medical screening.
We have interesting prizes this year including three (3) Yamaha Gensets and a Yamaha motorcycle for the fastest corporate team.
We also have free breakfast for all participants and a unique VIP Breakfast for networking among CEOs, MDs, and GMs for 50 cedis.Registration for single entry is 20 GHS while corporate entry (for a team of 5 members) is 50 GHS.

Most Rev. Dr. Charles Agyin Asare, the Presiding Bishop of Perez Chapel International has commended Silverbird Cinemas for bringing world class cinematic experience to Ghanaians.
The Bishop gave the pleasant remarks during his first visit with his family to the newly opened 3D Silverbird branch located at Functions Ghana, Weija.
Rev. Agyin Asare with his family enjoyed an exclusive showing of the 2014, epic biblically inspired film, ‘Noah’ and “Pompeii”, a German-Canadian historical Disaster film in 3D.
“I have had the opportunity to see a number of movies in the states and in the UK and my experience here at Silverbird is just like being in Europe and America.
When I heard there was 3D here, I said well, will it be the same? Amazingly, it is! I think that Silverbird brings the movie experience that makes you feel like you are part of the action. With 3D, they bring you in what is happening”, the Bishop said.
Commenting on his impression about the movie ‘Noah’ and its traces to the biblical account, the Man of God clearly pointed out that the movie, though, has some credible information that conform with the account in the bible, some of the messages in the film cannot be traced in the bible.
“I thought it would be just like the biblical story but after the showing, I think they took some things from the bible and created things that were not there. May be they wanted to tell the story in their own way, so they did.
One thing that comes strongly to me is that for quite a while, people will be talking about it because, there will be a debate as to whether it is the true account or it is not and that for me is healthy.
This is my first experience since Silverbird and I have had a wonderful experience with what they have here. I know ‘Noah’ just came out and for us to have it in Ghana is amazing. The quality is so original, he concluded.
The new 3D branch of Silverbird started operating in the last quarter of 2013. Since then, movie enthusiasts have enjoyed world class premieres in 3D including, “300: Rise of an Empire”, “Pompeii”, and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”, most recently.
The Cinema is furnished with the latest screening technology, 3D and with digital surround sound output. “The expansion of Silverbird cinemas to Weija is to bring world-class cinematic experiences with special projections to the doorstep of customers and patrons.
We thank Reverend Agyin Asare for his kind words and commendation. We are poised to raise entertainment to the highest peak in Ghana, Mr. Albert Adomako Mensah, Director, Commercial and Special Projects for Global Media Alliance said.
