For every 30 minutes of exercise clocked, 3M will donate one safety or household product to some 3,000 beneficiaries. The seventh edition of the challenge kicked off with more than 1,200 people aged four to 75 exercising at Wisma Geylang Serai. The challenge, which includes activities such as high-intensity interval training, children's zumba and piloxing, ends on July 31. Events will take place in other locations around the island, including Paya Lebar Square and SingPost Centre.
