Mr. Jordan Ng, the Organising Chairman, emphasized that the charity run strives to raise funds for the needy as selected charitable bodies will be receiving cash donations from the MRCA Branding Education Charity Foundation. The foundation was established in 2010 by Dato’ Tay Sim Kim and its objective is to provide educational and financial assistance to those in need and to also assist other charitable activities for the betterment of the community. This year, the committee has come out with a new collection of MRCA finisher medal where each runner will be getting the “M” finisher medal upon completion of the run.
