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.

Run. Walk. Completed 7K!

August 23, 2014. A BIG day for all of us at Sutera Harbour Resort – the 14th Sutera Harbour 7K Sunset Charity Run. Having more than 10,000 runners congregate in one venue to run for a good cause in aid of our 7K Beneficiaries (Sabah Thalassaemia Society & Special Olympics Sabah) has been an amazing experience. It’s kind of surreal to be sitting down, writing this recap of our 7K Run.

Just before the kickoff, Guest of Honour YB Datuk Haji Tawfiq Abu Bakar Titingan, Minister of Youth & Sports Sabah led all of us into a minute of silence in remembrance of the passengers and crew of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17.

One minute of silence for victims of MH17.

At 5.17pm, the fun run began with participants running, walking and catching up with others talking about their favourite topics. Before they knew it, they reached the glorious FINISH line.

But wait, it’s not over! All runners were treated to a post-run concert where a Zumba dance and 16 local talents took the stage. Stealing the lime-light was our youngest performer, Myra Lilly Aduk who took our hearts as she belted away to the tunes of Let It Go (Frozen) and Roar (Katy Perry).
