1Malaysia Street Race and Food Fest 2010

Enjoy a great day out at 1Malaysia Street Race and Food Fest 2010! Would you fancy playing soccer in a flooded field every time it rains?

Or sit on a wet open air assembly area for Morning Assembly after a heavy rain?

Or study in insecurity because the school fence has been breached by outsiders on numerous occasions?

Or using a toilet where the taps are broken?

This is exactly what 1200 students of SMK Bandar Utama Damansara (4) in Petaling Jaya are facing on a daily basis. It is for these reasons that the Parents Teachers Association of the school, in association with Bandar Utama Residents Association and MBPJ, has embarked on a charity fund raising event to help alleviate these problems so that a more conducive environment can be created for better academic and sporting excellence.

Come Sunday 25th July 2010, one of the biggest charity fund raising efforts in the residential neighbourhood of Bandar Utama will be underway. Residents, parents, college and school students will enjoy a great Sunday out at a 1Malaysia Street Race and Food Fest which will take place at the school grounds.

The event, which starts at 8am to 5pm,will be graced by our Guest of Honour, Deputy Prime Minister and Education Minister YAB Tan Sri Muhyiddin Bin Haji Yassin at 10am. We have also invited MBPJ Datuk Bandar, the local MP and State Assemblyman, Education Ministry officials, Headmasters of neighbouring schools, developers and community leaders.

The highlight of the event will be a 1Malaysia Street Race where participants of all races will run a distance of 3.2km around the Bandar Utama neighbourhood. They will encounter obstacles and challenges along the way...all in the name of fun!

When they complete the race, an Inter School Foozball Challenge awaits them at the school compound. A total of 16 teams will pit their skills against each other. Perhaps, the most eagerly awaited contest is a friendly match comprising sports celebrities. To add spice to the event, the organisers have invited current and ex sports stars eg Daniel Bego, Razif Sidek, Datuk Dr. Jegathesan, Ong Ewe Hock & KimberlyYap.

There will be more than 50 food and games stalls offering mouth watering local and international dishes. Besides that, there will a Haunted House, Garage Sale and exhibition booths put up by charitable bodies eg World Wildlife Fund and Malaysian Association for Blind.

Corporate sponsors will also be turning out in full force as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility. 1Malaysia Street Race and Inter School Foozball Challenge are sponsored by Maybank and Celcom Bhd respectively.

SMK BUD(4)’s cheer leading team, which emerged runner up in a recent national level Cheer Leading Competition will also strut their stuff. Other performances include the school’s 24 Drums Group, Malay and Indian Dances, all of which are internally groomed.

Isn't it the responsibility of the Ministery of education to take care of the school to fix the fence, toilet, classroom, table & chair and others basic requirements?
Fund raising is accepatable but the money should be use to buy books for library, computer and funding students activities.
