ALMOST 1,000 people turned up for the “Wheel, Walk & Fun Run” at the Malaysia Paralympic Sports Centre of Excellence in Kampung Pandan, Kuala Lumpur.
The national-level event to mark International Day of Persons with Disabilities was sponsored by Naza Corporation Holdings.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, who is also Women, Family and Community Development Minister concurrently launched the “Tambah Emas” Paralympic Council of Malaysia’s (PCM) crowdfunding campaign together with Youth and Sports Minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman and PCM president SM Nasarudin SM Nasimuddin.
Apart from being an event sponsor, Naza also sponsored the grand lucky draw prize of a Vespa S125 scooter.
SM Nasarudin, who is also Naza group executive chairman and Group chief executive officer, said part of Naza’s corporate social responsibility was the investment 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 support the crowdfunding endeavour so that the Paralympic Council of Malaysia will be able to reach its objectives.”
Also present were PCM patron Tun Jeanne Abdullah and PCM vice-president Datuk Subramaniam Raman.
