SUBANG JAYA – H2OPE Run Fest will be happening for the first time in Taylor’s University on Saturday, 14th June 2014. The event will be held at Syopz Mall beside Taylor’s Lakeside Campus. The open event is targeted towards the general public and is expected to attract around 500 participants from all over Klang Valley.
H2OPE Run Fest is a charity event aiming to raise fund for Charity: Water, a non-profit organization in order to provide underprivileged people with better access to clean and drinkable water. The name “H2OPE” derives from a creative combination of H2O and “hope”, which signifies the privilege of accessible clean water to the ones in need.
Fun Run (from 8.00am to 12.30pm) and Bazaar (from 10.00am to 2.00pm) will be the two main highlighted components of this event.
H2OPE Fun Run is built on the concept of combining a ‘jerry can run’ with a ‘color run’. The objective is to educate the participants and the general public about the importance of water. There are two main categories: individuals and pairs.
H2OPE Bazaar features a wide range of activities, varying from face painting, photo booth, eating contest to henna, clothing bazaar and many more.
The event’s official beneficiary is Charity: Water. Founded by Scott Harrison in 2006, the American organization has been funded for more than 11,500 projects in 22 countries. They have been featured in several international newspapers such as CNN, The New York Times, Vogue, Forbes, Vanity Fair, The Wall Street Journal, etc. Charity: Water then ensures 100 percent of the donation will be sent to the needed people.
H2OPE Run Fest is organized by X.O Project (X.O.P), a group of final year students from School of Communication (SOC) and School of Hospitality, Tourism and Culinary Arts (TCHT) who strongly believe in making a difference. Through this project, we hope to initiate a comprehensive understanding not only about Charity: Water but also educate the community about the water crisis.
