Vista Tower, is part of the world-class Intermark development and has an illustrious history as the tallest tower in Kuala Lumpur in 1994. In 2007, MGPA, a private equity real estate investment advisory company, had refurbished the tower to transform it into a brand new grade A building with sustainable design.
Today, Vista Tower remains as one of the most iconic buildings in the city, a symbol of success and KL’s fast economic growth.
The beneficiaries of this run will be two charity organisations : SOS Children’s Villages and Shelter Homes.
SOS Children’s Villages is the world's largest orphan and abandoned children's charity and aims to provide a new family and home for more than 78,000 children in 500 Children's Villages in 124 countries. The charity also helps a million children and their families through SOS community outreach programmes. For more information about SOS Children’s Villages, please see: http://www.soschildren.org.
Shelter Homes which is located in Malaysia, this year, will be embarking on the theme of “Education for the Betterment of Children,” where they will focus on the improving the educational opportunities for the children in their homes who come from dysfunctional families. More than 50 % of them have gone without education for a long time due to poverty, lack of documentation or neglect. Presently, Shelter Homes run three homes - one for young children (boys and girls) from ages of 4 -12 years: another for teenage boys and a third for teenage girls (ages 13 -17 years).
