THE Buddhist Missionary Society Malaysia (BMSM) Kajang is organising a charity event, Run People Run on Sept 25.
“Many people are not leading a healthy lifestyle as they are too busy with their careers.
“We wanted to do our part in encouraging people to be active by organising this run,” said organising chairman Daimler Yong, 26, during a press conference.
Besides Kajang residents, BMSM is hoping to attract participants from nearby universities and colleges as well as primary and secondary schools.
“Participants will be running around Stadium Kajang and nearby residential areas,” he said.
Funds raised will go towards renovation work at BMSM Kajang’s premises. The building, which used to house a cinema, has been attacked by termites
“We have completed Phase 1 of the renovation and will be embarking on Phase 2,” said the event’s marketing representative Low Xiet Yang, 21.
He added this would involve the construction of ten classrooms, a kitchen, toilets and activity area.
“We will also contribute part of the funds collected to Pusat Jagaan Saresu in Semenyih,” Yong said,
