City Centre Bahrain, the largest shopping, leisure and entertainment destination in Bahrain, emphasizes the satisfaction and wellbeing of its staff, while creating great moments, for the third consecutive year by completing the ‘Lose for a Cause’ Contest amongst its staff members.
The Contest this year, combined with a BHD10 donation for every kilograms lost during the contest, raised a total of BHD1,650 towards the Obesity Awareness Campaign organized by Bahrain Defence Forces Military Hospital.
“The aim of the ‘Lose for a Cause’ Contest is to encourage and support City Centre Bahrain staff to live a healthy lifestyle and maintain their fitness level for a good cause. This year 16 staff members from both genders participated in the contest, which ran over 12 weeks. To motivate the participants and to ensure that the energy, and commitment, was kept at a high, we committed to donating BHD10 to the Obesity Awareness Campaign organized by Bahrain Defence Forces Military Hospital for every kilograms lost during the contest,” said Duaij Al Rumaihi, Senior Mall Manager, City Centre Bahrain.
The City Centre Bahrain ‘Lose for a Cause,’ Contest commenced with a weigh-in on 3rd August 2015, with weekly weigh-ins held each Thursday thereafter on at the same time in the office, The progress tracking mechanics included measuring the percent of body weight lost on a weekly basis with the last weigh-in taking place on 26th November 2015.
To motivate the staff who took part on the 12 weeks health initiative, City Centre Bahrain offered Gift Card prizes to the top three participants who lost the largest percentage of their body weights. City Centre Bahrain hosted an ending ceremony on 15th December, with all participants undertaking a mall walk and ending the initiative with handover of prizes.
