STARWALK 2014 will be a special occasion for 50 staff from the Sunway Group as the event coincides with the company’s 40th anniversary.
Sunway Hotel executive assistant manager P. Nagaswaran said Starwalk was timely as the hotel was also planning a string of activities as part of its anniversary celebration.
“As the event is just across the road at the Penang Times Square from our hotel in New Lane, 50 of us will be joining the walk which we have been supporting for the past few years.
“We regard Starwalk as one of the biggest sporting events in the state and we are proud to be a part of it,” he said after handing over the vouchers to The Star senior advertisement representative Sandy Kow at the hotel on Wednesday.
The hotel together with Sunway Hotel in Seberang Jaya, Sunway Carnival and Sunway Grand are sponsoring hotel stay and meal vouchers worth more than RM10,000 for Starwalk.
There will be 14 vouchers for a 2D/1N stay in a Deluxe Room with breakfast for two, and nine buffet lunch and hi-tea coupons at both Sunway Hotels for lucky draw winners.
Penang Starwalk 2014 will be flagged off at Penang Times Square in George Town at 7am on Sept 14.
It is jointly organised by Star Publications (M) Bhd and the Penang Amateur Athletic Association (PAAA).
The public can register at the Star Northern Hub in Bayan Lepas from 9am to 5pm, Mondays to Saturdays (except public holidays), or at the Penang Times Square information counter on its ground floor from 10am to 10pm daily.
Online registration can also be done at http://sites.thestar.com.my/starwalk/.
There will be only a 7km non-competition category this year. The entry fee is RM12 per per-son.
The closing date for registration is Aug 29 or when entries have reached 20,000 participants, whichever comes first.
Part of the proceeds from the entry fees will be channelled to the PAAA for the promotion of athletics in the state.
