This fee includes a #RUNwithOLYMPIANS #RUNforOLYMPISM dryfit t-shirt, and button badge.
RM5.00 will be donated to Epic Homes, an organization that aims to build relationships between the urban and rural divide through the act of building homes for underprivileged communities, currently focusing on the indigenous people of Peninsular Malaysia, the Orang Asli.
Charity and Contribution
Epic Homes believes that the presence of relationships is what truly differentiates a ‘Home’ from a ‘House’.
When an Epic Home is built, a family does not just get a new house, but they also become connected to a larger community who genuinely cares for them; a community that seeks to understand their challenges, and who seeks to solve it together with them.
12,000 families are currently living in unsafe housing conditions. Over 77% are classified as poor.
Epic Homes mobilises volunteers to homes with families in need so that relationships between families and builders can be formed, a support system that can address key areas of intervention can be developed, the power of choice, restoration of dignity and self-belief can be facilitated and ultimately… individuals and families believe in their own talent and capacity to make a difference within their own lives, and the lives of others… becoming an epic person.
We aim to reach a total collection of RM50,000.00, the amount that is needed to build a house! Help us reach this goal! To make additional contributions, click the button below:

Every registration includes a #RUNwithOLYMPIANS #RUNforOLYMPISM t-shirt.
All teams that complete an accumulative total of a minimum of 127 kilometers will receive an E-certificate of Completion.
All teams that complete an accumulative total of a minimum of 127 kilometers will be eligible for the Lucky Draw that will be held on Olympic Day, 23 June. There will be attractive prizes to be won!
