In collaboration with McMillan Woods, Ministry of Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism (KPDNKK) along with major retailers, the Malaysian Retail Chain Association (MRCA) has successfully raised over RM100,000 through the MRCA Charity and Carnival Run 2017. The money will be donated for the betterment of 10 selected charitable homes in the city.
Themed ‘Care, Share & Run’, the event attracted more than 3,000 runners, including 550 children from orphanages who were invited by the association to join in for the fun and games. Malaysian celebrities such as Amber Chia, Debbie Loo, Amelia Lee, Janice Choong, Crystal Lee and Owen Yap also made appearances at the event as run ambassadors.
“This fourth edition charity event proves MRCA’s continuous vision to give back to the society. We believe that through this, we have brought a smile to the faces of these beautiful children as well as senior citizens. This would have been an impossible feat without the support of our fellow Malaysian retailers as well as the public,” stated Dato’ Choi Wei Yee, Organising Chairperson.
The proceeds from this event will be 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.
