On the morning of May 11, 2019, Gospel Church in Pudong New Area, Shanghai, held a run for health event beginning at the entrance to Century Park with more than 100 co-workers participating, according to the church.
Although the weather was hot and some of the co-workers joined in the campaign for the first time, everyone gave it their best shot. Mutually encouraging one another, they completed the 5km race.
Differing from the past, a "gospel aerobics" part was also added after the run. Each ministry team performed praise aerobics which they had practiced beforehand, and each move was synchronized with great musciality.
All the volunteers were actively involved in this event, sharing health and joy in Christ.
