Did you know that approximately 93 million children around the world live with moderate or severe disabilities? That staggering number is brought closer to home if you think about how one in every 20 children aged 14 or younger struggle to cope with daily life.
The ACE Society of University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus (UNMC), together with other student clubs and societies, will be hosting its 8th annual charity event to shed light on the hardships of disabled children and their families.
All proceeds from the Nottingham Charity Run 2016 (NCR 2016) and donations will go towards developing and providing better residential care facilities for mentally disabled children in the Home of Special People Cheras, Selangor.
Happening on Sunday, 27 March 2016, the charity run will flag off at 7:00 a.m. from the UNMC Trent Building in Semenyih town, Selangor. Open to the public of all ages, the run will feature a 5 km Fun Run and 10 km Run.
Be the first three to finish the 5 km Fun Run and receive hampers, medals and certificates. The top 100 men and top 100 women in the 10 km Run will be awarded medals and certificates too, as well as cash prizes for the leading three men and women.
Check out their event video here to get an idea of what to expect.
You can register online, at the on-campus booth (from now till 24 March 2016, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) or at the race venue on race day. Entry fees are RM 35 for the 5 km Fun Run or RM 40 for the 10 km Run.
All participants will receive a goodie bag, dry-fit NCR T-shirt, bib number and finisher’s certificate. Additional T-shirts are available for RM 20.
