Payung Walk 4 Charity – A Walk To Remember!
For many, June seems to be a glaring reminder of how quickly time has passed in the year. But for cancer survivors, it is a reminder of a second chance in life.
In conjunction with Cancer Survivor Month in June, Penang Adventist Hospital will be organizing Payung Walk 4 Charity, a walkathon aimed at raising funds for the hospital’s needy cancer patients via its Cancer Fund. No stranger to charity events, Penang Adventist Hospital successfully organized a cancer drive in 2012, with a record-breaking number of heads shaved to raise over RM600,000 in funds. If you’ve missed the drive in 2012, then be sure not to miss out on the upcoming Payung Walk 4 Charity!
Date: 29 June 2014
Time: 08:00 onwards
Venue: Jalan D.S. Ramanathan
Distance covered: 4.5km
Registration deadline: Closing soon!
With a registration fee of just RM30 for adults and RM15 for children aged 12 years and below, you’ll get a free T-shirt, goodie bag, umbrella and a ticket for the lucky draw. The multi-coloured design of the umbrella is more than just ornamental; every colour represents a different type of cancer: pink for breast cancer, orange for leukemia and so on. There is certainly no better way to show our support for cancer patients than by carrying a symbol of the spirit and bravery of those who survived and those who fought till the end. The registration form is available at this link: http://www.sendspace.com/file/rtka99
For families, there’s fun for all as a colouring contest will be held on the same day for children in the age range of 7 to 12 years. The contest starts at 8.40 a.m. and prizes will be awarded to those with the best creativity and originality. The registration deadline is June 22nd, so sign up for your kid now before it’s too late!
Other highlights of the day include special performances, a food fair with 30 operating stalls and of course, the highly anticipated lucky draw. Attractive prizes await you, from a 4D3N cruise aboard SuperStar Libra for 2 to an iPad mini! Increase your chances of winning by collecting donations with your donation card. Additional lucky draw coupons are given based on the amount collected, as stated below:
RM 50-100: 1
RM 101-200: 2
Remember that all proceeds will go to the Cancer Fund, and every small donation plays a part in saving a patient’s life. So challenge your fundraising skills and come join in the fun at Payung Walk 4 Charity!
