Runners, mark your calendar! We are officially announcing that the Sutera Harbour 7K Sunset Charity Run 2013 will be held on September 21, 2013 (Saturday) at the Covered Tennis Court, Sutera Harbour Marina & Country Club.
Although the event is traditionally held in the month of July, we had to postpone it due to the fasting month as well as the Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Merdeka and Malaysia Day celebration in August and September respectively.
Despite the change of date, we hope that you will continue to support the 7K run this year. We are targeting 13,000 supporters with an aim to collect RM230,000.00 for the 7K beneficiaries namely the Sabah Thalassaemia Society and Special Olympics Sabah.
Our first 7K run was held in July 2000 as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility initiative and to raise funds for the selected beneficiaries. Since then, we have continued the tradition as our aim is to also gather the community of Kota Kinabalu in the spirit of giving and friendship and at the same time to encourage and promote a healthier lifestyle in a fun environment.
Now that we are in the 13th year of our 7K Run, the committee has decided to add in the ‘fancy dress’ element to make it more memorable and fun. So, do come dressed up creatively during the event using the 7K Run T-shirt. An attractive prize will be given to the supporter for the “Most Creative 7K Run Outfit“.
In addition, all runners who complete the 7KM route within 77 minutes are entitled to win attractive lucky draw prizes drawn during the 7K Post-Run concert. There will be live performances by popular local artists as well as food and game stalls where all nett proceeds from this event will be given to the 7K beneficiaries.
If you are interested to join us for this good cause run, registration is open to individuals and organisations from August till September 16, 2013. Registration fees are at RM28.00 per adult and RM18.00 per child/student which are inclusive of a 7K T-shirt.
On that note, let’s lace up and RUN!
