KLCC Runners Source Funds from Crowdfunding PeopleGiving

Jul 15, 2017:

KLCC Runners Group, Malaysia’s biggest running community, today announced a partnership with PeopleGiving, the crowdfunding platform that hosts fundraising campaigns for charity partners across Malaysia.

The working partnership will promote running events that allow participants to nominate a charity of their choice to benefit from the profit of ticket sales. This will include an online Virtual Run series (organised runs in a virtual program), and will also extend to major events on the running calendar and campaigns across social media channels to build awareness of programs and innovative new ways that the public can give to charity.

The first event, a charity walkathon, is planned on Sunday 13th August in Lake Gardens Kuala Lumpur. ‘Walk2Inspire' will offer participants the opportunity to walk with nominated individuals and survivors, and to hear about their journey and experiences.

KLCC Runners group founder Matthew Barsing commented, ‘This is a unique partnership that brings together our shared goal of empowering individuals to help transform people’s lives.

We will be developing innovative ways to raise money for great causes, and best of all, make it a real fun experience.”

“This partnership will see a revolution of non-profit and active community groups coming together as a team to do good and give back. Charity will never be the same again.” commented PG President Teoh Chie Lean.

KLCC Runners Group have become high profile within the KL running community and beyond with busy social media pages and an ever growing presence on the running scene. And together with PeopleGiving, they promise to make fundraising a lot more exciting in the future!
