Energizer Night Race 2012 is on for a Brighter World

Energizer Malaysia has launched That’s Positivenergy, a global campaign that changes the way the company engages consumers in working together to make a positive difference to the world.

The campaign supports Energizer’s global commitment to creating long-lasting batteries with zero mercury, therefore helping to reduce waste and the impact on the environment. The foundation of the new platform combines performance and responsibility, and demonstrates Energizer’s long-standing commitment to responsible power and serving the community.

In line with That’s Positivenergy, Energizer Malaysia will be bringing back the annual Energizer Night Race on the 21st of April this year that promises to re-inspire participants and consumers with Energizer’s global positioning of ‘Keep Challenging, Keep Growing’ in more ways than one.

This year, Energizer Malaysia will be partnering with the Malaysian District of Kiwanis, an international not-for-profit organisation for the Energizer Night Race, which is well-known for its established initiatives such as the Kiwanis Down Syndrome Foundation and the Service Leadership Program (SLP), an international youth development program that provides leadership training.

Under the partnership, RM10 from every registration for the Energizer Night Race will be channelled to children development and learning programs by Kiwanis Malaysia, with RM50,000 set as the initial target from an estimated 5,000 participants. Energizer Malaysia is also planning to enhance the contribution by aiming to raise another RM200,000 through proceeds from the sales of Energizer battery packs throughout the registration period leading up to the race, putting the total target charity contribution at RM250,000.

“We at Energizer Malaysia recognise how we can do better than before and deliver a world-class sporting event that embodies our aspirations and corporate responsibility. In line with the responsibility and sustainability represented by That’s Positivenergy, we are very excited to be partnering with Kiwanis to support its motto of ‘Serving the Children of the World’.

“This is an effort that goes beyond Energizer itself. We strongly urge our trade partners and consumers to support this initiative and the life-changing opportunities it will provide for children throughout Malaysia, giving them the power for a brighter future,” said Foong.

News: Borneo International Marathon 2012 Targets 3,500 Runners

KOTA KINABALU: The 5th Borneo International Marathon 2012 targets 3,500 runners, said Datuk Peter Pang, Minister of Youth and Sports at the official launch today. The Marathon will be organized by Kinabalu Running Club, a new club headed by Dr Heng Aik Cheng, which takes over the event from Championship Sports Events Sdn. Bhd.

“The race is scheduled for Sunday, 6 May 2012. Since we launched our website on 1 December, 300 runners registered on that day itself. This is a good sign. It will be a great run for our participants and I am sure we can all look forward to a bigger and better event in 2012. This year‟s participation was about 2,400 runners and next year, our target is 3,500. We hope next year more schools will register students to participate for the marathon, especially for the 10KM race. We will have prizes especially for students,” said Dr Heng.

“Sabah‟s first marathon was held in 1984. We hope this event can continue and be one of Sabah‟s flagship sporting events and attract more international participants. It will serve to promote Sabah as an ideal international sports tourism destination,” said Datuk Peter Pang.

Dubbed "The Beautiful Run", the Borneo International Marathon passes through the city and many of Kota Kinabalu‟s interesting tourist sights. Runners will have the opportunity to participate in a Full Marathon (42.2KM), Half Marathon (21.1KM) and 10KM. The marathon is held to coincide with the cultural month of May, where Sabah Fest is usually held.

The Borneo International Marathon has raised money for local charities since its inaugural event in 2008, and this shall remain one of the main goals of BIM 2012. One of the charity events will be “Sky‟s The Limit” category, whereby any runner will try to raise as much money as possible through their friends and families to support their effort.

As an added incentive, the top three fund-raising champions will be rewarded attractive prizes. Runners who register for the run will also have choices of amount to donate to charities, apart from the respective entry fees.
