THE 38th edition of the Kiwanis Treasure Hunt will take place on Oct 16 and 17.
The annual event is organised by Kiwanis Club of Kuala Lumpur to raise funds for the operation and maintenance of Kiwanis Down Syndrome Foundation National Centre.
The centre, which is in its 32nd year, conducts an early intervention programme for children with Down Syndrome from the ages of two months to six years.
With a consistent enrolment of up to 150 children, operational costs exceed RM1mil per annum.
Part of the funds from the treasure hunt will also be channelled to other community service projects.
With the event taking place during an Olympic year, the committee has taken a cue from the Olympic torch relay motto and chosen the theme, “Hope Lights Our Way, Too”.
The group seeks the support of the public and corporations to join in the event as sponsors, donors or participants.
