Accra, April 15, GNA - Mrs. Catherine Morton, Race Director of the 2019 Kiddy Mile Race, has described the event, as successful, following the increase in the number of participants, this year.
According to Mrs. Morton, over 2,000 children aged between five years to 13 years from more than 50 schools took part in the “Mini Olympics”.
She said, the aims and objectives of the programme were achieved, because they managed to inculcate into the children, the desire to compete and win a medal in a competition.
In addition, she said the children showed a lot of interest in the event and were very happy to participate.
She said, plans were in place to shift the programme to Tema, Kumasi and Cape Coast in the near future.
