JUICE was at the launch dinner of Tom, Dick & Harry’s A “Mou Man Tai” Life 5km Night Run and was enlightened by the talk presented by Dr. Ilias Adam Yee from the Malaysian AIDS Foundation (MAF). So much so that we’re planning to take a sabbatical from our partying ways and train for the run, which will be taking place on 1 July 2012 so that we can contribute to the foundation!
Tom, Dick & Harry’s pub will be hosting a 5km night run with the theme – A “Mou Man Tai” Life; which is in Cantonese and it translates to A “No Problem” Life. Although their main objective is to gather the neighbourhood for some healthy fun, because of the overwhelming support they’ve received in the previous runs, the TDH team decided to partner with a charitable organisation to make the run more meaningful!
The organisation that they’ve chosen this time is the Malaysian AIDS Foundation to spread awareness of HIV/AIDS and also raise funds for the foundation. The public needs to know the true facts of the disease, how it is spread, how we can avoid it and what we can do to help. By gaining more knowledge on the disease and by donating to MAF to help those who are suffering from it, the theme aims to present a “mou man tai” life and spirit of those who are willing to help. Each participant will automatically donate RM10 from the RM40 entry fee, but at the end of the run, free flow drinks will be provided!
So, come along and join us celebrate a healthy life and be educated on something that has become a social stigma for many many years! Be sure to invite your family and friends too! The run commences on 1 July 2012, at Tom, Dick & Harry’s in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, 5.30pm.
