Young Scientist Day Charity Run: Run for a Good Cause!
The Young Scientist Day (YSD) Charity Run will be held in UPM on Saturday, 18th November 2017. This exciting race day events at UPM includes 10km, 5km and 3km runs. This charity run reaches out to a wide audience and inspires people of all ages, to help raise money for a great cause.
This event is held just before the school holidays and suitable for individuals aged 6 years and above, group of friends and family. It is a fun program that promotes family activity besides facilitating positive changes in improving healthy lifestyle.
Our aim is simple which is to raise as much as possible for Young Scientist Day, who will use those funds to make meaningful contribution in providing a platform for our future generation to pursue their natural curiosity and inventiveness in the field of science.
The YSD is an educational event for school students aged 7 to 17 years old held annually by Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Universiti Putra Malaysia. The main objective of YSD is to understand the practical application and utility of science by applying hands-on activities to proof the principles of science. The first YSD was held on 27th May 2014.
Following the success of this program, we expanded our YSD program to focus on 6 rural schools and inspired more than 1,500 school students. The major limitation of organising YSD is the financial constraint as the activities in this program are hands-on which require large amount of consumables.
Your participation in the YSD Charity Run enables will be contributed in organising our upcoming YSD2018 program that will benefit our future generation.
