Mah Sing Group Bhd plans to spice things up by running the Rat Race in red. The team is proudly sporting the developer’s new corporate T-shirt.
First-time runner Qurniawan Imran, who is with the internal audit department, said: “This year, I feel a true sense of togetherness. For the first time, we are wearing our corporate brand as a team. We have been keeping fit and hope to achieve great results.”
The objective of this year’s race, to support educational institutions, dovetails with one of the Mah Sing Foundation’s three pillars — providing access to education for underprivileged children. A spokesman for the group’s charitable arm said they believe that every child has a right to education and empowering children with knowledge and lifelong learning offers them limitless opportunities.
“It is refreshing to work hand-in-hand with an established organisation like The Edge Education Foundation. We are glad to see that our causes align in helping the nation’s future leaders achieve a better tomorrow,” said Mah Sing group managing director Tan Sri Leong Hoy Kum.
Another debutant to the run, Tham Saw Chang, said: “I am excited to be part of this year’s Rat Race because my hobby is running. Today, I am glad that in doing what I love, I can contribute to a charitable cause. Our company has always emphasised teamwork as one of its core values and this is an activity that reflects our corporate culture.”
