Press Release: HSBC Charity Partner Walk 2012

Register Now For The HSBC Charity Partner Walk And Do Your Bit For Terminally Ill Children

Nothing is more heartwarming than being able to bring a smile to a child’s face. At HSBC, that has been one of our missions this year.
Underprivileged children afflicted with terminal illnesses can now have their wishes come true, thanks to the HSBC Charity Partner Walk 2012. This 3.5 km charity walk and mini carnival is in aid of Children’s Wish Society of Malaysia (CWS), an organisation that works to fulfil wishes of children who are inflicted with life-limiting or terminal illnesses.

The HSBC Charity Partner Walk 2012 is the bank’s largest fund raiser for the year and all proceeds from the event will go to Children’s Wish Society of Malaysia, the bank’s Charity Partner of the Year. Launched in June this year, the HSBC Charity Partner of the Year programme is the first of its kind for the bank and the walk will be a culmination for this new community engagement initiative.

For a registration fee of RM15, participants will receive a limited edition Charity Partner 2012 t-shirt and message bib which can be collected on the day of the walk at Padang Merbok from 6.00 – 7.30 a.m. Flag-off will be at 8.00 a.m.

After the walk, participants can celebrate at a Mini Carnival organised by the bank. Coupons for the Mini Carnival can be purchased at select HSBC branches upon registration or on the day of the event for RM10 per booklet.

The Carnival promises to be loads of fun with food and games for everyone. There will be several bouncy castles with slides for the younger children and other games like darts, ring toss, ball in the cup and much more.

Walk-in registration is now open at HSBC’s branch in Jalan Sultan, Petaling Jaya and Damansara Heights from 22 – 23 November; HSBC Bukit Bintang and Subang Jaya branch from 29 – 30 November and HSBC’s Main Office in Leboh Ampang from 3 – 6 December.
