Relay for Life Kuala Lumpur - Malaysia’s Largest Cancer Event to Celebrate Caregivers

Kuala Lumpur, 29 June 2018 – the nation’s largest cancer celebratory and remembrance evening is back for its 12th year at Dataran Petaling Jaya.

Relay for Life (RFL) Kuala Lumpur, organised by the National Cancer Society of Malaysia, will celebrate the most important people in a cancer patient’s life: caregivers. Previously held for 16 hours, the duration of this year’s relay has been shortened to eight hours.

From 4pm to 12am, participants – patients, caregivers, family, friends, and local communities – will take turns walking around a running track to show their unity against cancer. RFL will also feature a remembrance ceremony, track challenges, on-stage fitness activities, and performances by survivors.

“Our theme this year is caregivers – our unsung heroes in a cancer journey,” says Dato’ Zuraidah Atan, Chairperson of Relay for Life Kuala Lumpur. “These are the people who take care of their family members or friends tirelessly, ensure that the doctor’s advice is followed, and even advocate for better care, more funds, or more research on cancer.”

However, the role of caregiving is also often very stressful and neglected, Dato’ Zuraidah says. Taking care of the practical needs such as transport, hospital visits, cooking and cleaning, and running other errands can be physically exhausting.

Many struggle to balance job responsibilities with their tasks while taking care of their parents or children, and some are even battling cancer themselves.

“They often fear – and feel responsible – for their loved ones’ health, but suppress these feelings because they feel they have to be a pillar of strength and hope,” she says. “They also neglect their own needs, which leads to frustration, and risk emotional as well as mental exhaustion.”

Apart from celebrating – and highlighting the importance of – caregivers at Relay for Life Kuala Lumpur, the National Cancer Society of Malaysia had also set up a toll-free cancer helpline to provide information as well as emotional support.

“When we set up the cancer toll-free helpline in 2016, we expected that most of the callers would be patients,” Dato’ Zuraidah says. “To our surprise, half of the callers are actually family members or friends, who ask many questions on behalf of the patient.

“We found that the well-being – whether physical or mental – of the patient really falls on the caregiver. We are currently strengthening our cancer support programmes, in the hope that our survivors can share the load by providing emotional and some practical help.

“Funds raised from Relay for Life will go towards these programmes – we have currently set up networks in Hospital Kuala Lumpur and Tung Shin Hospital.”

Funds will also go towards NCSM’s education and outreach activities, cancer and health screening services, as well as free accommodation for children with cancer.

Online registrations can be made at

NCSM is especially grateful to its sponsors and supporters Astro, Bridgestone Tyres, ROSEN Malaysia, Accenture, Idifynetz, Vitahealth, Shokobutsu, Yakult, Popcart, Copper, Parkson, and Shape magazine.

UNIQLO Announces Unique Partnership with Roger Federer as Global Brand Ambassador

Tokyo, Japan, and London, UK, 2 July 2018 - UNIQLO, the Japanese global apparel retailer, announces today a partnership with Roger Federer, the greatest tennis player of all-time and one of the world’s most influential and universally admired people, as its newest Global Brand Ambassador. The new partnership means that Mr. Federer will represent UNIQLO at all tennis tournaments throughout the year, starting with The Championships, Wimbledon 2018.

Commenting on the announcement, Tadashi Yanai, UNIQLO Founder and Chairman, President & CEO of Fast Retailing, said, “Mr. Federer is one of the greatest champions in history; my respect for him goes beyond sport. Our partnership will be about innovation on and off court. We share a goal of making positive change in the world, and I hope together we can bring the highest quality of life to the greatest number of people. UNIQLO will help Mr. Federer continue taking tennis to new places, while exploring innovations in a number of areas including technology and design with him.”

Mr. Federer said, “I am deeply committed to tennis and to winning championships. But like UNIQLO, I also have great love for life, culture and humanity. We share a strong passion to have a positive impact on the world around us and look forward to combining our creative endeavors.”

UNIQLO enters the partnership inspired by the past accomplishments of Mr. Federer and his previous partners. While respectful of new standards they set together, UNIQLO is not a sports company. UNIQLO describes itself as a life company that creates LifeWear, thoughtful everyday apparel with a practical sense of beauty, and constantly improved through craftsmanship and technology. With today’s announcement, LifeWear has a new champion.

Roger Federer’s game wear for Wimbledon 2018 was designed at the UNIQLO Paris R&D Center, led by Artistic Director Christophe Lemaire. Instead of the classic polo shirt or crewneck style collar, UNIQLO reflected Roger Federer’s preference for a short stand-up collar to emphasize a more sophisticated look both on and off court. The design of the shirt and shorts is accented by a burgundy color line - incorporated at the edge of the sleeves and the front panel of the shirt, and down the sides of the shorts - to highlight the company's corporate color, especially at the launch of the partnership.

Highly Functional Dry EX Material Trusted by Top Athletes
Jointly developed by UNIQLO and Toray Industries, Dry EX features a special arched structure that dries faster than ordinary dry function material, preventing the steamy and sticky feeling due to perspiration and keeping a comfortable feel during play. The raised structure is well suited to the strenuous movements of tennis. Highly breathable mesh has been used in areas that accumulate sweat, helping to avoid overheating and allowing the athletes to be at their very best during competition.

The UNIQLO Global Brand Ambassador Program
UNIQLO partners with world-leading people to promote its brand and LifeWear globally. Reflecting core UNIQLO values, Global Brand Ambassadors embrace challenge in pursuit of the highest possible achievement. They are universally admired for their integrity and character, and for the optimism, respect and humility they demonstrate to all.

UNIQLO combines the expert professional insight of its Global Brand Ambassadors with its most advanced proprietary technologies, creating apparel that supports human performance at the highest level, while also bringing greater comfort and functionality to the everyday lives of its customers. In addition, UNIQLO works with its brand ambassadors to promote community engagement and development initiatives around the world.

In addition to Roger Federer, the UNIQLO Global Brand Ambassadors today are Kei Nishikori (Tennis), Shingo Kunieda and Gordon Reid MBE (Wheelchair Tennis) and Adam Scott (Golf).

Where? Taman Metropolitan Kepong, Kuala Lumpur
When? 11th November 2018 (Sunday) 7.00 am
How much? RM60 - 280
How far? 3.5, 7km

Lung cancer is a major cause of mortality and morbidity in Malaysia and worldwide. Lung cancer is the second most common cancer death after breast cancer, accounting for about one out of five malignancies in men and one out of nine in women. Those who smoke have a risk of developing lung cancer that is 10 to 17 times higher than that of non-smokers. Smoking has been shown to be the main risk factor for lung cancer. The risk increases with the number of cigarettes smoked per day and the number of years the person has smoked. The risk of lung cancer for non-smokers who are exposed to smoke in the environment (known as second-hand, passive or involuntary smoking), is as much as 30 percent higher than that of those who are not. Basically, everyone is succumb to lung cancer, even for young women and non-smoker.

In spite of the alarming statistics, public awareness of the symptoms, signs and nature of lung cancer was found to be poor. This has been identified as a cause of late presentation of the disease at an inoperable stage in many patients, and also a delay in diagnosis. Thus, Lung Cancer Awarenss Charity Run 2018 with the theme of Love Lung , Love Life is a charity drive organized by EMPOWERED-The Cancer Advocacy Society of Malaysia, with the objectives

1) To raise awareness about the many types of lung cancer, recent evolution in diagnostics, therapeutics and prevention.

2)To work in collaboration with governmental and non-governmental organizations to promote smoke-free public and workplaces.

3)To encourage and educate the public to achieve healthy lungs and active lifestyles.

4)To raise sufficient funds to allow ongoing implementation of our grassroot cancer screening and treatment projects, so as to allow an increasing number of underprivileged communities throughout Malaysia to have their basic right to fight against cancer.

" Besides being just an ordinary run, there will be lucky draw, food truck, performances, exhibition booth and many more interesting activities which will make your weekend into a wonderful and fruitful experience with your beloved friends and family.

Through this worldwide initiative, adidas and Parley call on their global communities between June 8 and July 8 to take action and protect the oceans that are increasingly endangered due to man-made issues including pollution, waste and growing consumption. Since 2015, the partners have been working together to prevent plastic entering our oceans, transforming it into performance sportswear crafted from Parley Ocean Plastic™.

Taking the initiative to the next level for 2018, adidas will match every kilometre run with US$ 1 – for the first one million kilometres – to support the Parley Ocean School program, which educates and empowers the next generation of Ocean Guardians through immersive experiences in the environment we are fighting to protect. With in-school program and water sports activities, Parley Ocean School introduces youth to the underwater world, teaching them about the impacts of marine plastic pollution and giving them the tools and inspiration to protect their future with Parley AIR.

Cyrill Gutsch, Founder of Parley for the Oceans said: "Every second breath we take is created by the Oceans. Still, we are killing its life in rapid speed. We are hosting Run for the Oceans with adidas to step out of our routine, to take a deep breath and to reflect on how important the sea is for every one of us. And to show that millions of little steps can make a huge difference for our movement."

To get involved, adidas and Parley are hosting a series of physical runs in several key cities worldwide including Kuala Lumpur, Los Angeles, New York, Paris, London, Barcelona, Milan and Shanghai. adidas Running is mobilising the global adidas Runners network to organise weekly running initiatives in 50 adidas Runners communities worldwide.

Andre Maestrini, General Manager, adidas Sports Business Units said: “At adidas, we believe that sport has the power to change lives and the Run For The Oceans movement truly reflects this. We have created a unique global platform that gives everyone the opportunity to impact their lives by joining a collective running movement that fights marine plastic pollution. Seeing the adidas family unite for a shared purpose is what makes the campaign so powerful.”

Runners around the world can also sign up and track their runs on the digital platforms of Runtastic to contribute and help reach one million kilometres, joining adidas ambassadors Shaunae Miller, Tori Bowie and Wayde Van Niekerk among other high-profile athletes in their efforts to spread the message.

Inspired by the fragility of the oceans, adidas Running will reveal limited-release UltraBOOST Parley and UltraBOOST X shoes, fusing performance-oriented footwear technology with progressive eco-innovation.

How to fix running app GPS recording issues on Huawei phones

I am recently a proud owner of Huawei Mate 10 Pro. I am loving the phone but there was one thing that almost drove me insane after taking it out for a run. My first run with my Mate 10.

Out of the box, I just can't seem to get the Nike+ Run Club app to keep running (very punny, right?) in the background. Nike+ recording stops right when the screen turns off, rendering it useless. No map was rendered for my run.

Then, I tried to change the setting of the battery app and gave permission for Auto-launch, Secondary Launch, and Run in background.

Settings> Battery> Launch> Manage Manually

I also went into app settings and assigned ignore battery optimisation.

Settings> Apps & notification> Apps> Settings> Special Access> Ignore Battery Optimisation

It still didn't work properly. The Nike+ app only recorded the points where I turned on the screen to check the distance. Therefore, my run was tracked in straight lines! But, well at least, I got a map....albeit the pace was totally out. Pace 17? I must be slower than a snail. LOL!

Then, my friend, Chief Chapree @ Low Yat with some help from Terry @ Huawei (Thanks guys!!) threw me a lifeline. They pointed out that my phone's firmware was the old version and I should get it update. After updating the firmware from version 119 to 138....

Viola...My Nike+ Run Club works fine! (Insert happy tears here)

So, I learned a couple of things about my new Huawei Mate 10 Pro phone.

In order to preserve battery life, the battery saving settings on Huawei phones can force quit the GPS at any time, which means that the running apps like Nike+ cannot continue to record your activity. There is a reason why the battery is so good. The phone is basically shutting down when idle.

Try these tips when recording with a Huawei phone:

1) Make sure your firmware is the latest.
2) In the battery settings, give permission for Auto-launch, Secondary Launch, and Run in background.
3) In the application settings, assigned ignore battery optimisation for the running app.

Now that everything is sorted, let go for a run. :)

Media Release - 40th Gold Coast Marathon attracts record international entries

Gold Coast, 19 June 2018 - A record number of runners from overseas will arrive in Queensland next week for the 40th Gold Coast Marathon, Minister for Tourism and Major Events Kate Jones announced today.

With still over a week remaining until entries close, over 4,000 runners from 46 overseas countries have registered for the event to be held on 30 June – 1 July 2018.

“To have a record number of runners visiting from overseas is a testament to the standard of events we have on the Gold Coast,” Ms Jones said.

“Events like the IAAF Gold Label Gold Coast Marathon showcase the region to international visitors and provide an opportunity to participate in a world-class event in one of the most sought-after tourism destinations on the planet.

“Interest in this event is at fever pitch, with the 42km race sold out and other races selling quickly. We expect to attract more than 7500 international competitors including family and supporters - this will give the Gold Coast tourism industry a great boost.

“With a late surge of entries anticipated, the event is expecting to generate more than 90,000 visitor nights and up to $27 million – a record economic impact.

“This is another great legacy of the Commonwealth Games.”

Ms Jones highlighted the record number of entries from Greater China and South East Asia as major contributing factors to the overall unparalleled international numbers.

“The appeal of this event to runners from China is at an all-time high, luring more than double the number of entries last year,” Ms Jones said.

“We had one participant from China in 2010 and we have well over 500 this year. Record participation in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia also shows the appeal of this event in Asia.

“Best-ever numbers are also coming from Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau, while Japan continues to provide the most number of visiting international runners.

“It’s highly likely New Zealand will reach a record number this year too.”

Ms Jones said the global media exposure of the Gold Coast Marathon has contributed to the increased profile of the event and the Gold Coast.

The 2017 television highlights program was broadcast to an estimated two billion viewers resulting in significant international exposure.

“Television coverage of the Gold Coast Marathon last year generated 1700 hours of air time with a potential reach into 900 million households across 93 countries,” Ms Jones said.

“In addition, the live stream of the Gold Coast Marathon is available around the world, complementing the significant global audience engaged on social media.

“Not only are media partnerships raising the profile of the marathon but also of the Gold Coast as a destination for major events.

“We will also host more than 50 media representatives from Japan, greater China and southeast Asia this year.”

The Gold Coast Marathon is organised by Events Management Queensland, a major event management company wholly owned by the Queensland Government as part of Tourism and Events Queensland.

Events Management Queensland Chairman Kerry Watson said he is delighted with the growing international interest in the Gold Coast Marathon.

“Targeted long-term marketing strategies in collaboration with Tourism and Events Queensland, Gold Coast Airport, City of Gold Coast, Gold Coast Tourism and major sponsors have resulted in unprecedented participation numbers from overseas markets,” Mr Watson said.

“The growth we are seeing today is based on the platform we’ve laid for even more visitors to come and experience the Gold Coast Marathon both this year and in future years.

“Our strategies, combined with the celebratory occasion of the 40th edition, as well as the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games have attracted significant attention to this destination, and we plan to ensure the Gold Coast Marathon adds value to that focus on the Gold Coast for many years to come.”

This 40th annual Gold Coast Marathon will be held on Saturday 30 June and Sunday 1 July.

Entries for all races on the program close on Friday 29 June.
