THE 14th edition of the BHPetrol Orange Run went off without a hitch after being rescheduled from September due to the haze.
“I am happy the rescheduling did not affect the turnout which was good, ” said Boustead Petroleum Marketing Sdn Bhd acting chief executive officer Azizul Azily Ahmad.
“We had about 4,500 participants for the charity run which is more compared to last year, ” he said after the run which took place at the Curve in Mutiara Damansara, Petaling Jaya.
Azizul Azily added that the company topped up money collected through participation fees to make it RM30,000, which was donated to three welfare homes.
A total of RM10,000 each was given to Teratak Nur Barakah, House of Love and Rumah Shalom.
House of Love founder Joseph Pang, who was present at the event to receive the contribution, said the money would go towards the children’s education needs such as paying for books and fees.
Winners of the run in eight categories won a total of RM50,000 in prizes along with BHPetrol vouchers.
Free health screening was also conducted on the day, along with other activities.
