~Mid Valley City partners with WWF-Malaysia to raise awareness for conservation~
 
Kuala Lumpur: 1,800 gathered today at Mid Valley City for its 4th annual 5-kilometre Mid Valley City Charity Run (MVCCR). This year, the charity run sees its first collaboration with WWF-Malaysia to raise awareness on wildlife conservation in conjunction with Earth Month.

“We believe we have the responsibility to do our part in the conservation of wildlife. Animals become endangered before they become extinct. There is no better time than now for us as corporate citizens to join in with our community and help raise the bar in our efforts to save these endangered wildlife,” says Antony Patrick Barragry, CEO of IGB-REIT. “We are truly happy for the tremendous support from our partners, shoppers and the community who join us and help make a difference.”

In line with Earth Month, participants are encouraged to come dressed in eco-friendly costumes to stand a chance to win prizes such as SUNNTO Vector watches, STADIUM vouchers, and Jaya Grocer hampers. All proceeds from the Charity Run will be channelled to WWF-Malaysia’s conservation efforts.

In addition to that, the run also features other key partners including Revive Isotonic Drink, Bleu Mineral Water, Key Power Sports, and Gear Up Venture. To add to the festivities, runners are treated to food and beverages from BreadTalk, Guardian, Juiceee, Lavender, Mikey’s, Moocow, Ori-Udon, The Chicken Rice Shop, and The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf after the run.

Shoppers can visit The Gardens Mall from 17 to 30 April 2017 to learn more about endangered species and WWF-Malaysia’s conservation efforts at the exhibition and booth located at the South Palm on the Ground Floor. There will be WWF-Malaysia merchandise for sale, as well as an art installation by The One Academy at the South Atrium.
