A Mini-Marathon Organized by Zong in Islamabad


Zong, the fastest growing telecom operator of Pakistan recently organized a healthy day-out activity for its employees and their families. To welcome the winter season, a mini-marathon titled “Run like a Wind, embrace Nature!” was arranged by Zong for its management, other employees and their families at the Fatima Jinnah Park located in F-9, Islamabad.

A 5km marathon was divided into 3 categories: men, women and children. Hundreds of Zong employees and their family members participated in the marathon. The top three winners of the race from each category were given medals, certificates and goody bags by none other than Mr. Fan Yunjun, CEO, Zong.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Fan Yunjun said, “At Zong, we believe that outdoor activities and a bonding time apart from work is extremely important to inculcate a well-balanced personality in our employees. Hence, at Zong, we make it a point to engage our employees and their families in various entertaining and healthy activities from time to time. This mini-marathon was yet another initiative in that direction. At Zong, we are all like a one big family and are committed towards the well-being of each other. That’s what helps us move forward and achieve more every single day. I think we can go further with a highly motivated, energetic and healthy workforce.”

The mini-marathon was arranged by Zong in an effort to promote the importance of fitness, well-being and a healthy lifestyle among its employees. The activity proved to make everyone feel energetic and in high spirits, creating a positive environment for all those present at the event.

It is a part of Zong’s work culture to regularly engage its employees in activities besides the office work to give them a chance to take a break from routine and achieve a more balanced work-play lifestyle.
