6th November 2016, Mahkota Medical Centre, MELAKA
The Mahkota Charity Run 2016 was sweeter than sugar with a total of 1,500 excited participants that all came with one cause in mind, to raise awareness and help people with diabetes. Mahkota Diabetes Centre partnered up with Affin Hwang Asset Management Bhd, Melaka Skyhawk Marathon Club and Lee Association’s “Lee Youth Caring Fund” in organizing its third edition charity run.
The gloomy skies and pouring rain did not hinder the charity run from raising a whopping RM123,067.25 in which all proceeds would be channeled for diabetic patients who are unable to afford treatment. In addition to fundraising for diabetic patients, the objectives of the charity run were to raising public awareness about diabetes and promoting a healthy and active lifestyle.
