Menang 8 Mothers' Day Activity with MAS Walkathon
Menang 8 sponsors door gifts for Malaysia Airlines Crew "Walk For Life" Walkathon event.
Cabin Operations, IFS Welkins proudly presents their 5th WALKATHON, a “Crew for Crew” project.
The day that everyone has been waiting for and we are so glad that we were part of the event held on May 8th and be able to make a difference, be it small or large, in raising fund for a good cause. The event held at the Kelana Jaya on early Sunday morning has seen a few hundreds of friends and families gathered for a 5km walk around Kelana Jaya Lake and stadium. WELKINs is organizing this event to support the less fortunate Crew members who are or have been medically grounded for a long period of time or simply being in special circumstances needing assistance.
This event was held on :
Date : 8th May 2016, Sunday (Mother's Day)
Time : 7.30am till 11.00am
Venue : Malaysia Airlines Academy Kelana Jaya
Walkathon distance : Approx. 5km along MAA, Stadium Kelana Jaya & Kelana Lake
*Note : This is an internal event for crew members (staff & family)
Mothers' Day was also celebrated at the event followed by a series of amazing talents during the showtime, such as Traditional Indian dancing, the Traditional Malay Instrumental with the "kompang", talent singing, group dancing and so much more.
There were also booths set-up around the premises for visitors to purchase goods from them, where most of the proceeds will go into supporting the less fortunate Crew members. Menang 8 Rajakayu booth set-up by our agent, Angeline, was also one of the booths there! We saw booths selling food, handmade skincare, accessories etc were flocked with enthusiastic crowds. Our goody bags were a hit on that day. A percentage of every auction and sold items has helped contributed to the fundraising to support more people who are living with cancer.
The event has raised more than RM65,000 for cancer patients from the sale and auction of various items as well as donations. And the greater news is, the organization has made a one-to-one top up for every ringgit raised!!!
"Every ringgit counts and every ringgit raised will be able to help ease the burden of rising cost of cancer treatment and a little help goes a long way."
Overall, it was truly a heartwarming and touching event. You see everyone from different walks of life come together as one big family to support and help each other.
With that, Menang 8 was honoured to be a part of this truly heartwarming event.
