Kuala Lumpur, 10 December 2016 - MPI Generali Insurans Berhad held a 30 Days Countdown Cocktail for its annual community run at Pacific Regency Hotel yesterday. Run sponsors and partners as well as members of the media packed Cristallo Restaurant to build momentum for MPI Generali Run 2016, the fifth run organised by the general insurer.
The attendees were treated to a retrospective catwalk that featured all five runner Tshirts that had been printed for the Run, each corresponding to one of the five colour blocks in the Run logo. Sponsors and partners were formally recognised for their support of the Run in an appreciation plaque presentation ceremony. Some of these sponsors have been with the Run since its debut in 2012.
The new MPI Generali CEO Mr Oliver Tan shared his enthusiasm about the upcoming Run in his welcome address: “We have attracted many supporters with or without running background, colleagues, corporations, and sponsors and partners like yourselves. Through these five years, we have established a base of loyal followers, and we want to show our appreciation of their loyalty with MPI Generali Run 2016.
“It is going to be bigger, bolder and brighter. This is the Run where the fun comes in family sizes. We want our followers to make it their family day. We want you to make it your family day.”
The list of sponsors and partners for MPI Generali Run 2016 includes New Balance (Official Apparel), Revive Isotonic (Official Isotonic), Pacific Regency (Hotel Partner), Running Malaysia (Media Partner – Magazine), Gleneagles Kuala Lumpur (Medical Partner), Affin Hwang Capital, BP Healthcare Group, Mamee, Sworke, Magnum, Nestlé Fitnesse, Nestlé Milo, Pilatique, Garmin, KT Tape, Leong Adjustment Sdn. Bhd., Massimo, Penyelarasan Angkasa Sdn Bhd, Simply Juice and Sugar Kid Malaysia.
The token of appreciation for donors of the third Project Good Deeds was also unveiled at the cocktail: the Pandanus bookmark. Made from pandanus leaves, the bookmark bears the weave patterns based on the indigenous Mah Meri latch weaving of a traditional pouch.
The amount of work that goes into the making of one bookmark gives the token a special touch. Donors will receive the bookmark in acknowledgment of their donation of sports shoes and T-shirts to Project Good Deeds, which is set to benefit another four Orang Asli kampungs this time.
The past six beneficiaries of Project Good Deeds are Kampung Orang Asli Bakok, Kampung Orang Asli Bukit Damar, Kampung Orang Asli Bukit Jenuk, Kampung Orang Asli Sungai Lalang, Kampung Orang Asli Sungai Mai and Kampung Orang Asli Ulu Yam.
The present Project Good Deeds will benefit Kampung Orang Ali Air Terentang, Kampung Orang Asli Bukit Baja, Kampung Orang Asli Tanjung Rampai and Kampung Orang Asli Ulu Tual Pos Sinderut.
Collection for Project Good Deeds will be made as per the following schedule. More info HERE.
