This annual charity event is here again for the 8th time! Although I have never participate it myself 9although last year I intended to), this year is a bit special, as one of the beneficiaries for this year’s event is Special Olympic Sabah! The other non-profit organization that will receive the benefit is Sabah Thalassemia Society, in which, I was also involved while I was working in Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
This is an event where you register yourself to participate in their 7 kilometers run, and try your best to make it under 77 minutes. There will be no winners in this event, but if you manages to complete the route in the allocated time, you will qualify for a lucky draw prize just after the run.
By paying RM20 for adult, and RM10 for children, you will be given a t-shirt and some of your money will be donated to the beneficiaries.
The main sponsor for this event would be Digi, one of Malaysian mobile telecommunication company and F&N 100 Plus.
So, if you happen to be around Kota Kinabalu on Saturday, 26th July 2008, spend some money for the needy, get yourself some sweat and have a jolly good time with the crowd. There will be live entertainment, food and games stalls that add to the festive carnival atmosphere.
Call their 7K hotline for registration and information: +6088-308121.
I will try my best to join the event!!!
