MRCA Charity and Carnival Run 2017 @ OneCity, USJ

Yay, I have just completed 5.3km route for the MRCA Charity and Carnival Run 2017!

I am glad to be one of the 3,000+ runners this year, to support the charity initiated by the Malaysian Retail Chain Association (MRCA), in collaboration with McMillan Woods, Ministry of Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism (KPDNKK) along with major retailers.

Through this event, it manages to raise over RM100,000 for the betterment of 10 selected charitable homes in the city. What a good news, isn't it? 

The warm-up session started as early as 6.45am.

It was great to see friends and family of all ages here early in the morning.

It was almost 7am when I was waiting for the run to begin.

Let's get started!

Bumped into a friend before running!

Malaysian well-known celebrities such as Amber Chia, Carrie Lee, Debbie Loo, Amelia Lee, Janice Choong, Crystal Lee and Owen Yap also attended the event, taking centre stage as run ambassadors. Unfortunately I didn't manage to get any photo with them.

After the quick run, it was time to grab some food and drinks at the carnival. There was also a total of 550 children from orphanages who were invited by the association to join in for the fun and games at the carnival. 

The smiles on the faces of these beautiful children are just priceless :) The RM100,000 proceeds from this event were donated to Rumah Charis, Angel Homes, Good Kids, Juara Home, Ace Lighthouse Academy Bhd, Kiwanis Club of Kluang Mandarin, Home of Love, Rumah Sayangan, Persatuan Insan Istimewa Cheras, and Good Samaritan Homes.

There were a total of 34 trophies and prizes worth RM40,000 up for grabs from the Men’s Open (10.8km), Men’s Veteran (10.8km), Women’s Open (10.8km), and Women’s Veteran (10.8km) categories. There were also non-competitional Men’s 5.3km and Women’s 5.3km categories, along with a Team Run category, consisting of four members per team, where each runner was required to complete a 900 meter run (Relay).

MRCA Charity and Carnival Run 2017 is proudly co-organised by MRCA and McMillan Woods, with the Ministry of Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism (KPDNKK) as supporting sponsor; and MRCA Corporate Patrons – Maxis, Maybank, Fusionex and Mastercard. Other sponsors include Lotto, Seth Learning Garden Sdn Bhd, DTCK Corporation Sdn Bhd, and Valiram Group. 

Hope to see you again in the MRCA run next year!
