UN Global Road Safety Week, 8-14 May 2017

Hashers and non-Hashers are invited to join a walkathon/runathon/skateboardathon event from 6-7am on Tuesday 9 May as part of activities to mark UN Global Road Safety Week (UNGRSW) in Yangon. The event is for walkers, runners and skateboarders to participate in a communal “non-motorized road users activity”.

UNGRSW promotes road safety, and supports realisation of the Health Goal as one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). A specific stand-alone target (3.6) of the Health Goal is to reduce road traffic fatalities, namely:

  • “By 2020, halve the number of global deaths and injuries from road traffic accidents.”

Each participant in the Yangon walkathon/runathon/skateboardathon will receive a t-shirt, water, and free admission pass for an expo in People’s Park on Saturday and Sunday (13 & 14 May). They’ll also receive a road safety pamphlet, which can filled-in with your name & contact details & be used at the Saturday & Sunday expo as an entry form for numerous lucky draw prizes (there’ll be 3-4 lucky draw prizes each day).

Other events to mark UN Global Road Safety Week will be held at Peoples’ Park, Yangon, from Monday 8 to Sunday 14 May, including a week-long vehicle expo, entertainment (live band, DJ, fashion show) and demos from the Myanmar BMX/Skate Boarders team.

This year’s UNGRSW tagline is “Save lives #Slow Down” – something hashers can relate to in the hot season.
