THE Soft Skills Enhancement and Learning Support Association (SEALS) of Universiti Tenaga Nasional (Uniten) recently organised a zombie themed charity run called “Rev-Up The Walking Dead”.
The run, held at the university’s Putrajaya campus, was sponsored by Revive Isotonic Sdn Bhd.
Approximately 660 participants, called “survivors”, 80 “zombie” volunteers and 150 crew took part in the run, which covered a 5km radius around Uniten.
Survivors were heard screaming along the route during run.
The participants were flagged off at 8pm by College of Foundation and General Studies (CFGS) dean Mohd Ariff Ahmad Tarmizi. Also present were Languages and Social Science department head Noor Azam Abdul Rahman, SEALS director Saarvin Raj Kanagasarpai, SEALS advisor Evelyn Yeap and SEALS co-Advisor Mohd Anwar Muslimen.
“We collected RM3,000 for the Malaysian Leprosy Relief Association,” said Saarvin, adding that he hoped that the success of the run would encourage Uniten students to organise more charity events in future.
