It was the end of September last year, the night had a peculiar chill in the air as zombies roamed about in torn, bloody, white pieces of cloth.
Fret not, it was actually part of a charitable run organized by APAcS! Not only did we have 1,300 participants this year (almost double of last year’s 700), we were also given the honour of several VIPs attending the event. They were UiTM’s Deputy Vice Chancellor, Prof. Dato’ Dr. Abdullah Mohamad Said along with the Dean of Faculty of Accountancy, Prof. Dr. Rozainun Haji Abdul Aziz, the Deputy Dean of Student Affairs, Dr. Zuraeda Ibrahim and the Coordinator of the Professional Learning Centre of Faculty of Accountancy, Dr. Norhayati Alias.
Besides that, the charity fun run had received sponsorships from EY, Deloitte, KPMG, PwC and BDO. As for our official apparel, it was from ULTRON and the discount coupons were from MBG.
Indeed, all the participants enjoyed themselves and had a great time but the real highlight of the night was reaching our fundraising goals! RM10,000 was donated to our beneficiaries which are Teach for Malaysia, represented by Miss Karen Arulsamy and Pondok Tahfiz Al-Hidayah, represented by Ustaz Khafiz.
We hope that in 2017, there will be even more participants and collaborations in order to continue to organize this charity event annually.
