Am sure many Malaysians such as you and me would have heard of the founder of our local Community Policing Association of Malaysia (COPs), Mr. Kuan Chee Heng. A noble man who has dedicated his time and energy into helping the needy citizens of Malaysia. His effort through COPs is notably well known across the nation and he has personally help many people who are forever grateful and thankful to him.
This coming December, it will be a remarkable and notable event that Mr. Kuan alongside with IOI Mall and Mamee, will be organizing a Kentang Charity Fun Run 2018, where everyone of you will have the opportunity to help raise much-needed funds for the purchase of :
Target : Raise RM350,000 >
To acquire the following :
- 2 Funeral Van (Van Jenazah)
- 2 Ambulance
- 1 Super Coach Bus
It's a good opportunity for parents to teach their kids and instil in them a sense of
community. This Kentang Charity Fun Run 2018 is a healthy and fun activity with the addition of the awareness and the funds raised will go towards helping the needy makes this activity extra meaningful; as highlighted by Mr Kuan. I'd have to agree with him because many fun run nowadays promotes a healthy lifestyle together as a community but the Kentang Charity Fun Run brings about a new meaning to the participants and the end results which are the needy who will be on the receiving in the end.
And whatever balance collected from this Charity run will be used in their on-going efforts to service the needy. Because just like today's event, Mr. Kuan shared this morning, a young boy called him seeking for help as his father just passed away and he only has RM10 left in his wallet. He has no funds to send his late dad's body back to Seremban. So this are the cases that Mr Kuan receives daily, even there was one incident where the wife was about to give birth in Banting and the husband who was on the way over, got into an accident and passed away on the way to see his wife. Left his wife stranded there with a newborn and a funeral to manage and she had no funds to help her to settle all of this and also funds for her to head back home to East Coast. Hearing these stories, I am sure that if you were in Mr Kuan's shoes what would you do?
