NTV7 FEEL GOOD RUN 2012 on 8th July 2012

by - March 13, 2012

A long-distance running event that is usually run as a road race is called the "marathon". What then do you call a run that lets you sweat and have fun, while doing charity AND running alongside your favourite celebrities? As surreal as it may sound, ntv7 made it all possible a year ago with the inauguration of Feel Good Run. Returning for a second year in 2012, the one and only Feel Good Run continues its pledge in bringing the "feel good" factor to all participating runners.

The fun run which attracted amazing numbers in its first year including over 5,000 runners and close to 10,000 visitors, and raised more than RM140,000 for its beneficiaries, will be doing it all over again this year in Sri Pentas, Bandar Utama on 8th July, Sunday. Coming in as main sponsors for this mass run this year are – Pedigree and Whiskas – the world's leading dog and cat food.

With Twenty First Century Sports being appointed again as the Run Management, Feel Good Run 2012 offers the same categories as its first year but will :

Feel Good Run – 7km, aged 13 and above
Run with Celebrities – 3km, aged 13 and above
Costume Fun Run – 3km, aged 13 and above
Kids Run – 700m, aged 12 and below

The mastermind behind this amazing effort is none other than Airin Zainul, Group General Manager of ntv7 & 8TV. Being an avid runner herself, Airin envisioned a platform which could cultivate healthy lifestyle amongst Malaysians, while encouraging the act of giving to those who are less fortunate. "We are truly grateful to the support given by the public in the first year where we took a leap of faith in organising this fun run. We were overjoyed when runners thank us for making their day a "feel good day" – that's the kind of feeling which we get that's priceless," says Airin.

The Organising Committee has also come out with a tagline this year – Do Good, Feel Good! – created to inspire the public to have a big heart for those in need, which not only include humans, but also animals with proceeds to be channeled equally to four participating beneficiaries – Yayasan Chow Kit, Kiwanis Down Syndrome Foundation, Pure Life Society, and PAWS Animal Welfare Society Malaysia.
