GET ‘GLOW’-ING FOR KIDNEY HEALTH!
Kuala Lumpur, April 2019 – The National Kidney Foundation of Malaysia (NKF) is turning MAEPS Serdang into a glowing party! The NKF Glow Run which is happening on 20th July 2019 will take the participants down a luminous 5km route of neon lights, laughter, sweat and exhilaration, with a party atmosphere from start to finish.
The event is a part of NKF’s 50th anniversary celebration which aims at educating and increasing public awareness of kidney disease while raising funds to subsidise underprivileged kidney failure patients under the care of NKF. Decked in neon paint and accessories, participants will be transformed into glowing piece of a moving, multi-coloured artwork, while make their way through multiple fun zones including the confetti room, balloon field and neon liquid station.
Celebrations will continue with a line-up of exciting happenings such as neon face and body painting, neon doodles photo board, giant hamster roll, as well as live band performances. Runners can look forward to get an energy boost and get rehydrated at the food trucks available at the event. Participants can also show further support by literally running the extra mile with the treadmill donation challenge which converts every kilometre covered into monetary contribution to the non-profit organization.
“As the leading organization in Malaysia dedicated to the awareness, prevention and treatment of kidney disease, NKF constantly encourages people to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. We see the opportunity to put this into practice in a fun way by organizing the NKF Glow Run in conjunction with our 50th anniversary,” said Chua Hong Wee, Chief Executive Office of NKF.
