PETALING JAYA: Around 1,000 people from all walks of life took part in the ‘Wheel, Walk and Fun Run’ at the Malaysia Paralympic Sports Centre of Excellence in Kampung Pandan recently.

Organised by the Paralympic Council of Malaysia and sponsored by Naza Corporation Holdings, the event was held in conjunction with the International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, who is also Women, Family and Community Development Minister, launched the "Tambah Emas" Paralympic Council of Malaysia’s crowdfunding campaign together with Youth and Sports Minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman and Paralympic Council of Malaysia President SM Nasarudin SM Nasimuddin.

Apart from being an event sponsor, Naza Corporation Holdings also sponsored the grand lucky draw prize of a Vespa S125 scooter.

The International Day of Persons with Disabilities is celebrated widely every year to promote the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities in all spheres of society and development, and in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life.

Naza Group of Companies group executive chairman and Naza Corporation Holdings group chief executive officer SM Nasarudin SM Nasimuddin said part of Naza’s corporate social responsibility was to invest in community development.

"As a corporate citizen, we are proud to lend our support to the Paralympic Council of Malaysia in their endeavour to bring the para-contingent and para-sports to the next level.

“I also hope Malaysians will step forward and support the crowdfunding endeavour so that the Paralympic Council of Malaysia will be able to reach its objectives and chart the para-contingent’s path to more gold medals and glory in the future,” he said.
