Do you have what it takes to run 8km in Palm Resort’s Sunset Charity Run4Fund?

The success of the inaugural Run4Fund jointly organized with TJ Mart Kulai to raise funds for the Palliative Care Association (PCA) of Johor Baru last November has prompted the organisers to follow-up with the second charity fun run planned for Saturday, August 20.
This is a run with a difference. Palm Resort Golf & Country Club has designed an 8-km golf course route on the Melati course, one of their three challenging 18-hole golf courses, to welcome non-golfers to enjoy the scenery at the course.
The organisers realised that a route within the golf course will not only give non-golfer participants the opportunity to have first-hand experience of a golf course but also to run in a safe environment which is free from vehicular traffic.

The flag-off at 4pm will give participants the opportunity to enjoy a sunset view of lush tropical greenery sprawled across manicured hills and interspersed with water features like ponds and streams.
The charity run invites participants to join in two Open categories for Ladies and Men and two Veteran categories for Ladies (aged 55 and above) and Men (aged 60 and above). Cash prizes of RM300, RM200, and RM100 will be awarded to the top three runners.
One of the event sponsors, Dinowork, is helping to raise more funds by selling souvenir teddy bears at RM50 each with the sum of RM20 contributed to Run4Fund.
Club CEO and Hotel General Manager of Palm Resort Berhad, Jef Kong, explained that the cash prizes are just a token sum because they want to channel the bulk of the funds to support the Palliative Care Association for their work with needy families.

In 1995, the Rotary Club of Johor Baru pioneered the setting up of the first hospice in JB to provide care to terminally ill cancer patients and the service evolved into an association dedicated to providing palliative care.
Palliative care is a medical specialty in providing comprehensive and compassionate care to help terminally ill patients have a better quality of life while respecting their right to live out their remaining days with dignity.
Since its inception in 2007, the Palliative Care Association of JB has been giving essential support free-of-charge to terminally ill patients and their families. The total cost for providing free service to patients is estimated at about RM325,000 per annum.
Registration fees for the charity run at RM50 each entitles participants to an event T-shirt, finisher medals and a goody bag.
So if you haven’t done so, register now to run for a good cause!
