An extraordinary run that packs with zombies, health-check, charity drive… all-in-one!
A run or marathon is no longer simply reaching for the finishing line. The young and the athletic in Peninsular Malaysia can expect a whole new hype this coming 2016 with the Run To Survive series scheduled to kick-off at Sutera Square, Johor Bahru, Johor on 2nd January, Setia City Park, Shah Alam, Selangor on 16th January, and Indera Mulia Stadium, Ipoh, Perak on 30th January 2016.
Jointly-organized by Delcom Management and JS Entertainment, the Run To Survive 2016 is the very first running event that features a five kilometers fun run that includes unexpected zombies’ encounters and wild chase, limited-edition race kit and giveaways along the run.
Registered runners will receive a custom-made neon T-shirt, a heart-shaped medal (upon run completion), a 2D1N Holiday Getaway at Genting, light sticks and also the opportunity for free health-check, special effects make-over by the same professional make-up team engaged by Universal Studios Singapore for Halloween and Horror-themed events.
“To usher in a new year, we thought of doing something really different … an event that not only keeps your heart pumping hard from the adrenaline surged of running and being chased by zombies, but also health-check that comes with a message on heart disease prevention. All of these eventually contribute to a good cause in helping underprivileged heart patients at IJN National Heart Institute!” said Anthony Ooi, spokesperson for Delcom Management. “It is not just any run. It will be a run for health, for charity and most importantly… for fun that everyone can join!”
The registration fee for Run To Survive 2016 is RM75.00 per participant in which RM5.00 from each successful registration will be donated to IJN Foundation in order to fund treatments for the poor and underprivileged heart patients.
Speaking about this unique charity drive, YB Datin Julini Mohd Ali, Fundraising Chairman, IJN Foundation expressed that, “At IJN Foundation, we believed that the poor and needy too deserve proper care and treatment. We are very glad that companies such as Delcom Management and JS Entertainment step up the game by channeling funds raised from Run To Survive 2016 to aid the underprivileged patients under our care. It is also crucial to increase the public’s awareness on heart disease prevention as cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the number one killer globally. ”
