An original passport or license card can be submitted instead of ID card, should the need arise.
Ooredoo Color Run is a simple 5K with lots of color and non-stop fun, which is open for everyone over the age of six. Each kilometre covered during the run will be rewarded with a burst of color powder at the color station. As the run is not a timed event, participants can choose to walk, jog, run or dance to the finish line, where their efforts are celebrated in style with color throws and finisher medals. The run will be held on Fri, 28th June 2019 from 4.00 – 6.00 pm, starting and ending at Hithadhoo Stage Area.
In addition to the Run, Ooredoo is also hosting a special Kite Festival from 8.00 am – 10.00 am on Fri, 28th June 2019 at Hithadhoo Stage Area. Open for all, the festival includes a number of fun activities for the entire family such as kite flying, kite making workshop, games for children and a special display by Maldives Police Services. If there are any kits left after EXPO, Ooredoo will also be opening up the chance for those who were unable to register earlier. The remaining kits will be available for purchase at the Kite Festival, on a first come, first served basis.
Ooredoo is also joining forces with Twitsaafu to host an Addu Edition this weekend; on 29th June from 4.00 – 6.00 pm. Twitsaafu is a volunteer led clean-up movement that began with a single tweet earlier this month. Following multiple events in Male’ and Hulhumale’, it is now expanding in horizons to additional areas of the Maldives, starting with the event in Addu City on Saturday. The movement’s key focus lies towards facilitating a solution for the trash issues that are prevalent in the Maldives, in order to preserve the natural beauty and resources of the islands. Additionally, it aims to create a generation that is mindful of the world around us and works towards establishing environment friendly practices within the community.
Ooredoo Color Run in Addu is supported by a great team of partners, including Ministry of Youth, Sports & Community Empowerment, Unix Sporting, Addu City Council, Maldives Police Services, Maldives National Defence Force, Maldives Ports Limited, Island Aviation, Equator Village, Addu Medicity, HK Rentals, Note Cosmetics, eHUB, One Degree, Buruzu Catering, WAMCO Addu, Fenaka Corporation Limited and Addu Live.
Along with its partners, Ooredoo Maldives invites everyone in Addu to join the weekend’s festivities with their friends and family.
