Race For A Better Planet 2016 – Calling for Malaysians to protect the environment in conjunction with World Environment Day
Bandar Sunway, 25 May 2016 – Sunway Property, Malaysia’s leading property developer and Master Community Developer, is set to host a series of green community events across its regions as a step forward to care for Mother Nature this World Environment Day (WED).
Embarking on a bigger scale of commemorations this year, Sunway Property announces its official inaugural celebrations themed ‘Race For A Better Planet’ with four different races coming to town in Penang, Ipoh, Johor Bahru and Klang Valley.
This year, public are invited to four environmentally-themed race events at:

• ‘Hike With Nature’ at Sunway Valley City on 29th May 2016 in Penang
• ‘Discovery Walk 2.0’ at Sunway South Quay on 4th June 2016 in Klang Valley
“To support a diverse and yet well-balanced ecosystem, Mother Nature and our communities play pivotal roles in creating a holistic ecosystem. At Sunway, we are more than just builders of homes and developments. We recognise the importance of sustainable living as we engage and nurture our green communities across the regions,” explained Sarena Cheah, Managing Director of Sunway Berhad Property Development Division.
“This resonates well with Sunway’s commitment to build sustainable developments in efforts to provide a liveable environment for the community. We are instrumental in supporting the cause and we want to further empower the public to take greener actions starting from home,” said Sarena.
In partnerships with not-for-profit NGOs, EcoKnights and MENGO, this initiative aims to create a healthy and sustainable community by raising the awareness on making positive environmental actions to preserve and protect Mother Nature. Echoing this, Sunway Property aims to nurture a greener community by urging all Malaysians to join hands in working towards a green nation.
On 28th May 2016, the ‘Discovery Race’ is set to witness participants taking part in a treasure hunt at Lost World of Tambun, Sunway City Ipoh. Participants will have to complete a list of tasks and puzzles revolving topics of environment. They will also stand a chance to win attractive prizes upon completion of the race. Public are welcomed to drop by the green market featuring homegrown brands and sustainable-living workshops organised by the NGO partners.
A separate cycling event will take place concurrently on 28th May 2016, with the community in Johor at Sunway Iskandar. During the ‘Ride With Nature’ event, participants will be cycling through the township in an effort to promote environmental awareness. There will also be lucky draws as well as green activities including tree-planting and fish-releasing which are open to the public.
In Penang, the ‘Hike With Nature’ will take place at Sunway Valley City on 29th May 2016. Along the trail, participants get to enjoy the scenic views of Nan Shan Hill while staying close to nature. Families and friends are also invited to experience an exciting line-up of activities including environment workshops, a recycling fashion contest, green talks and more.
Following the well-received ‘Discovery Walk’ last year, residents of Klang Valley can look forward to ‘Discovery Walk 2.0’ which will be held on 4th June 2016.
