22nd May, Kota Kinabalu… In conjunction with World Cultural Diversity Day and World Ocean Day, Yeo Hiap Seng (Malaysia) Berhad (“Yeo’s”), the leading home-grown brand with its significant line of halal and quality food and beverages, has co-organised The Borneo Post – Yeo’s Cultural Diversity & Ocean Run 2016 to actively promote the inspirit love for Mother Nature and her oceans through a symbolic race along the scenic coast of Sutera Harbour.
Present at the Ocean Run, Joe Wong, Senior Manager – Corporate Communications of Yeo’s said, “This Ocean Run is certainly a healthy platform for families and friends to be involved that raises awareness to promote the love and appreciation to the ocean, our planet’s largest water reservoir, while keeping fit together.”
“At Yeo’s, we believe that a wholesome lifestyle includes daily healthy food choices and also regular physical exercises to stay fit and keep in shape,” added Joe at Oceanus Waterfront Shopping Mall, Kota Kinabalu.
To support the run, Yeo’s has accommodated to the needs of the participants by providing naturally nourishing and delicious beverages at multiple booths along the route to provide swift thirst quenchers for the runners. The drinks to be distributed to the participants include Yeo’s Isotonic H-TWO-O and Yeo’s Jasmine Green Tea; both which are packed with nourishing benefits.
For many participants, the refreshing taste of Yeo’s Isotonic H-TWO-O is certainly to be a crowd favourite as it is an excellent liquid replenisher and also conducts sodium replenishment effectively. Best consumed while or after physical activities, it is a great-tasting isotonic drink for the participant’s to keep themselves well hydrated even as they run for the good cause.
Meanwhile, Yeo’s Jasmine Green Tea, one of the top beverage choices of many in East Malaysia, is freshly brewed with premium and pure green tea leaves that comes without added preservatives and less sugar format. Known to all, green tea is rich in anti-oxidising properties that strengthen our body’s immune system and helps to ward against free radicals. It soothes one’s mind and senses, making it the perfect drink after vigorous exercise.
“It is Yeo’s hopes that with these refreshing beverages such as Yeo’s Isotonic H-TWO-O and Yeo’s Jasmine Green Tea, the participants for the The Borneo Post – Yeo’s Cultural Diversity & Ocean Run 2016 will be able to reap the beverage’s natural goodness and be more health and environment conscious through their active involvement in this run. Yeo’s believes that healthy living starts with consistent exercise and nutritious diet choices,” said Joe.
