Rock to Rock Run 2010, Hard Rock Hotel Penang’s First Charity Fun Run Sold Out in 2 Weeks!

Wow! This rocks! For those who had registered, have a rocking run! :)

On 1 October 2010, Hard Rock Hotel Penang officially launched its first Rock to Rock Run 2010. The one last year saw Hard Rock Hotel Penang’s extensive commitment to various charitable causes. This first charity run, sponsored by AMD, co-organized with the Penang Amateur Athletic Association (PAAA) and Lions Club of Penang Gold Coast in conjunction of the Penang Beach Carnival 2010 aims to raise minimum RM30,000 to build a new kitchen and to purchase new kitchen equipment for Rumah Kebajikan Seri Cahaya.

“The response towards this run has been overwhelming. Despite the closing date on 10 November 2010, we have officially closed our registration. This is indeed beyond our expectation and kudos to all passionate runners for your support in this good cause. Our partners, sponsors and Penang State Government have been providing so much support and we would like to take this early opportunity to thank them,” said John Primmer, General Manager of Hard Rock Hotel Penang.

Hard Rock Hotel Penang is expecting about 1000 runners to be present at Rock to Rock Run 2010, scheduled on 28 November 2010, from 7am till 11pm at Hard Rock Hotel Penang. Registered runners are required to be present at 6.30am for registration. Despite the closing of the runners’ registration, Hard Rock Hotel Penang continues to welcome any contribution in cash or kind to be channeled towards Rumah Seri Cahaya in conjunction with this philanthropy effort.
