The 11th 7K Sunset Charity Run Finally Over

The 11th 7K Sunset Charity Run was awesome! Don’t believe me? Well, you better because I’ve got pictures to prove that the event was spectacular :-)

Did you see the joy on the participants faces? There were no prizes to be won that day but still they were happy. Then again, what’s not to be happy. This was indeed the biggest running event in Sabah for 2011!

People from all walks of life participated in the run; students, government servants, the young, the seniors, the rich and the middle class. I even saw a mom who brought her toddler along in a baby stroller.

The event was officially launched by State Youth and Sports Minister YB Datuk Peter Pang. The event was also graced by the Mayor of Kota Kinabalu, Datuk Abidin Madingkir, CEO of Sutera Harbour Resort, Mr. Frank Lippmann and Board of Director Sutera Harbour Resort, Mr. Foo Kia Inn.

Throughout the event, the participants were entertained by the antics of DJ Ray and DJ Tyzo, both from Suria FM.

After the run, participants were treated with a concert and performances from local artists such as Soulmate, Fanzi, Ariez, Prince of POP, Candy AF5, Nubhan AF6, and Adam And The VIPs.

The committee of the event have been busy receiving pledges and support from schools, corporate entities and government bodies. Activities lined up for the 11th 7K Sunset Charity Run includes the many food stalls, lucky draws and of course, entertainment by local artistes.

Today, The Director of Sutera Harbour Resort, Mr Foo Kia Inn together with his team called on Mayor of Kota Kinabalu, YBhg Datuk Abidin Madingkir at his office today.

During the visit, Mr Foo briefed YBhg Datuk  the history of the 7K Sunset Charity Run and the activities planned for this year’s Run.

YBhg Datuk Abidin Madingkir said ‘ I am pleased to note that it is a litter free event and hope that members of the public will observe the rule to make 7K Run a litter free event.’
