Every participant in this event had made a wellness goal, which is written on the back of each race shirt in an area entitled “What’s your green?”.  Sandrine said “I know a healthy outside starts from the inside and that’s my goal this year”. The green addition to the traditional pink ribbon symbolizes taking awareness into action.

本次赛会T恤背面印着“你心中的绿色目标是什么?”,每位参与者都需要订立自己的健康目标,并写在此处。Sandrine说:“我明白健康由内至外的道理,这就是我今年的目标。”在传统的粉红丝带上添上一抹绿色象征着这一活动将不仅仅停留于意识,而会积极行动起来。

By 7.30am Century Park was a vision of Pink and Green as over 3,000 runners and walkers of all nationalities, ages and genders assembled for the opening ceremony and the start of the race. There was excitement in the air and the vast array of creative pink and green costumes brought much amusement and joy. Many of these fun costumes are worn in honor of loved ones.

早晨7点30分,世纪公园已成一片粉绿色的海洋,不同国籍、年龄和性别的参赛者超过3000人。大家集合在一起参加了活动的开幕礼和起跑式。现场气氛格外热烈。人们穿着各具创意的粉色和绿色演出服,为活动带来了极大的欢乐。很多人穿着这些服装也为了纪念自己的亲人。

Following an energetic warm-up provided by the Nike instructor, the corporate teams and individual runners were ready for the dance off to Taylor Swifts ‘Shake-it off’. Then, for a change of pace, members of the Shanghai Cancer Recovery Center (SCRC) performed a beautifully gracious dance routine, which reminded us of what can be achieved through proactive prevention, wellness from within and sisterhood support. In the words of a Thriver from SCRC “The SCRC partnership with MTA provides the platform needed to focus on the prevention and recovery of Breast cancer. At the same it’s a sisterhood for all the loving hearts of the society.”

在耐克教练充满活力的热身运动之后,团体和个人赛跑选手随着一曲泰勒斯威夫特的《摆脱它》揭开了舞蹈表演的序幕。随后,上海癌症康复中心(SCRC)的成员带来了不同风格的表演。他们那极其优雅的舞蹈系列动作提醒人们积极预防、内在健康和妇女团体支持的重要性。就如一位癌症康复中心的康复者所说:“癌症康复中心和MTA的合作为乳腺癌的预防和康复提供了一个专门的平台,同时它也是全社会爱心的体现。

The 5k race began at 8am to the beat of ‘I run for life’. The 2k commenced shortly thereafter. As the 3,000 runners and walkers embarked on their individual journeys around the park, reading everyone’s “green” goals and seeing the names of honored loved ones provided an incredibly inspirational experience. Jared from Little Scholar Academy said “We believe that healthy habits should be learned and practiced from a young age. We encouraged the LSA community to join the race as part of our school-wide wellness initiative and to put our support into action for this great cause!”.

8点整,5公里竞赛在“我为生命奔跑”的歌声中开始。2公里亦随之开跑。3,000名参赛者绕着公园开始他们的赛程。一边竞跑一边读着其他人T恤背上的“绿色”目标和亲人的名字,这真是一个令人难以置信的鼓舞人心的经历。正如“小小学者学院”的Jared所说:“我们相信健康的习惯要从小培养和学习。我们鼓励学院的团体参与本次活动,这是我们学校健康计划的一部分,同时也是用实际行动表示对这一伟大事业的支持!”

As the temperature steadily began to rise and the event drew to an end, Frederic Madre of the Kerry Hotel said, “Shangri-La Hotel and resorts is committed to its corporate social responsibility and encourages women to be proactive in the prevention of breast cancer. Thanks to More Than Aware to make the efforts on taking the awareness into action.”
