Kuala Lumpur – The countdown to MPI Generali Run 2017 started in a stately grandeur with Princes and Princesses gliding into Cristallo Restaurant, Pacific Regency Hotel today.
Artists cosplaying Disney’s Belle and Cinderella danced with their respective Princes to the delight of the guests at the 30 Days Countdown to MPI Generali Insurans Berhad’s upcoming Run. The delight turned to laughter when the local favourite mascots of Mamee and Mr Potato appeared and joined the dance. 

The royalty’s presence showcased the 5km Fun Run’s Prince & Princess theme. The cosplay element is introduced by the general insurer to add more fun to the family-friendly annual community run.
Besides the Waltz, sponsors and partners were each presented with an appreciation plaque for their contribution.

In his speech, Oliver also touched on Graduation Run, which is the last session of My First Run Clinic, and Project Good Deeds, the CSR initiative that has complemented MPI Generali Run since 2014.

Graduation Run will be happening at Sri Hartamas large playground this Saturday 10 December 2016 to celebrate the close of the programme and “graduation” of the participants. The session will be capped with Graduation Breakfast.

At the same session, the first collection of pre-loved sports shoes and tees will be made under Project Good Deeds, which seeks to reduce the impact caused by solid waste on the environment. The collected shoes and tees would be donated to four Orang Asli settlements, namely Kampung Orang Asli Bakar Leleh Bumbum, Pulau Carey, Selangor; Kampung Orang Asli Pulau Carey, Selangor; Kampung Orang Asli Batu Semenyih, Selangor; and Kampung Orang Asli Sebir, Negeri Sembilan.
