In addition to the run, the ‘Rakka’ Road Safety program will also involve the dissemination of informative clips and media content regarding potentially dangerous road accidents in collaboration with their media partners.
The road safety run is set to kick-off at 4pm on Friday in Hulhumale’, and events will proceed until 16 January where participants will receive a medal and T-shirts printed with various road safety messages as ‘Rakka’ awareness programs continue across the country.
