- Sponsors and media welcome to build momentum for community run
Kuala Lumpur – MPI Generali Insurans Berhad is hosting a cocktail session to count down the 30 days to its fifth community run. The 30 Days Countdown Cocktail will take place at Pacific Regency Hotel on 10 December 2015 from 4:00pm.
Previously known as the Multi-Purpose Insurans Run or MPIB Run, MPI Generali Run 2016 is expected to be bigger, bolder and brighter than the previous Runs by bringing family-sized fun to its participants.
Project Leader Jayne Liew explains: “With four runs under our belt, we have established a base of loyal followers among runners, corporate supporters, sponsors and partners, and our colleagues. Adding the family “flavour” is our way of showing our appreciation of their loyalty. We hope to make our fifth community Run a true communal event where our followers, their friends and loved ones can gather together and have some good, healthy fun.”
The Cocktail also serves as a way for the Run Organiser to show its appreciation of all its sponsors and partners and to name a few: New Balance (Official Apparel), Revive Isotonic (Official Isotonic), Pacific Regency (Hotel Partner), Running Malaysia (Media Partner – Magazine) and Gleneagles Kuala Lumpur (Medical Partner).
Project Good Deeds will continue to be featured for Runners to recycle their still wearable sports shoes and T-shirts for a good cause. Started alongside the 2014 Run, Project Good Deeds collects pre-loved running shoes and sports T-shirts for the Orang Asli community.
Members of the media are invited to join the Countdown. To register attendance or for enquiries kindly get in touch with Natalie Hau at +603 2034 9888 Ext: 7807 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
