LINBAQ Holdings Sdn Bhd is hosting its first ever charity relay in Johor Baru, with the hopes of developing sustainable communities and strengthening ties.

The run titled “Chase the Light Relay” will be open to the public aged above 12.

Participants will run a circuit that starts and ends at the Linbaq Sales Gallery at Jalan Harimau in Taman Abad tomorrow.

Details of the run were revealed at a press conference by Linbaq chief operating officer Brendon Yeo.

Teams will consist of four runners, with each person running three kilometres before passing the baton to the next member, for a total distance of 12km.

The first runner for the team will start their run at 6am, and the event will continue until noon.

The open relay event consists of three categories: men, women and a mixed gender category.

For those who are more daring or without a team, they may register for the individual category, which will see them completing the 12km themselves.

Linbaq has sponsored a total of 40 prizes.

Registration fees collected for the run will be donated to 10 beneficiaries, with Linbaq matching the collection ringgit for ringgit.

The 10 beneficiaries include welfare organisations, rotary clubs and learning institutions in Johor.

They are Disabled Welfare Association Xi Le Er, Insan Mewah Johor Baru Welfare Organisation, Kiwanis Down Syndrome Foundation, Sin Chew Foundation, Let’s Art at Sawit, Pontian Rotary Haemodialysis Centre and Renewing Johor Welfare Foundation.

The other beneficiaries are SJK (C) Yu Ming 1, Foon Yew High School and Southern University College.
