A whopping RM295,505.20 was collected at the recently concluded 14th Sutera Harbour 7K Sunset Charity Run!

This amount was equally divided between the two beneficiaries – Sabah Thalassaemia Society and Special Olympics Sabah with each receiving a total of RM147,752.60. Our Deputy CEO, Mr. Gerard Tan presented the cheques to both beneficiaries at Sutera Harbour Marina & Country Club today.

Proceeds from the Run will provide the much needed-fund required to organise year round sports for the Special Olympics Sabah’s participants, while funds received by the Sabah Thalassaemia Society will be used to obtain desferal drugs to remove excess iron received from regular blood transfusions and essential medical equipment like syringe desferal pump. These desferal drugs will be retailed to patients who are not able to afford bulk-purchase.

Together with our DCEO, we are overwhelmed with the continuous support from more than 15,000 runners over the years that we’ve organised this Run!

From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank our Main Sponsor – Star Cruise Travel Services (M) Sdn Bhd, Contributing Sponsors including F&N/100Plus, SuriaFM, Sounds Tech Production, Gleneagles Kota Kinabalu and SHAPE magazine, schools who participated in the 7K Collection cards, medias as well as member of the public for the invaluable support and participation in the 7K Run.
