Sunday, 16 June 2013 – Thousands took the street on Sunday for The Spring Live Active Run and amongst them were 84 CMS employees and their families.
The sky was still pitch dark when the runners arrived. Starting from as early as 5.30am, 3 seasoned runners, Benjamin Ong Yun Yeow, Faisal Machmud and Law Lee Eik ran the 21 km half-marathon passing through Petra Jaya and the Main bazaar and managed to finish the run gracefully. They were given the finisher medal.
There were 8 runners who participated in the 10km run which kicked off at 6.15am, running through Main Bazaar and Padungan were Eleanor Anne Ayu, Goh Kheng Leng, Sylvester Ngilo Ipoi, Chai Chien Liang, Darren Kho Nam Choy, David Ling Koah Wi, Jacqueline Yong Oi Chan, Sim Shean Yiing. They completed the run and they were given the finisher medal.
For the 5km Fun Run event, a throng of spirited participants were seen from the starting points including our very own Group Managing Director, Dato’ Richard Curtis, that were eager to start the race. At 7.00am, they flagged off all the remaining participants.
Not forgetting the little ones, there was also the 1km Children Dash Run.
The charity event raised RM 60,000 for three local charity organisations – Sarawak Children’s Cancer Society, Dyslexia Association of Sarawak and Kuching Autistic Association.
The whole run finished around 8.00am and they all did well with sweaty but smiling faces. After the run, drinks were provided by the sponsors for runners – 100 plus and milo and cereal.
Congratulations to all CMS employees who participated in the run!
