Last Sunday, Mommy Jane brought me and my Ti Ti to Desa Waterpark for the 12th ROASTERS Chicken Run. This round, we will run for charity to support the Food Aid Foundation. Funds from the run will used to provide 2,000 sets of Kenny's Chicken Meals to approximately 20 charitable homes for both young and old and the remaining will be utilized to purchase ingredients and groceries to other homes.
More than 2,138 runners participate for the run. Some arrived as early as 6.30 a.m. while me and my family arrived at 7 a.m. At 7.25 a.m., Dato' Francis Lee, Group Executive Director of Berjaya ROASTERS (M) Sdn Bhd (photo as below) gave us a welcome note and short speech. He said that the ROASTERS Chicken Run was in 12th year now. Means that even before I was borned, the run had started years back. Wow...
Dato' Francis said that with the supports from Malaysians, it gave them a sense of satisfaction to see their objective of promoting healthy living while giving back to the community has been achieved. A total of RM55,000 was raised from the event and with the fund, KRR will be reaching to a larger number of the needy ones by providing them with nutritious wholesome meals as well as donating funds to various organisations through Food Aid Foundation.
Mr Rick Chee, founder of Food Aid Foundation who had received mock cheque from Dato' Francis as above show his gratitude and support to this meaningful event. They had appreciate the generosity from KRR and fellow Malaysians for our selflessly here to support the foundation. With the contributions garnered from the event, they certainly be able to extend their arms to a greater number of homes and provide them with more nutritious food supplies.

After the run event over, everyone proceed to the water theme park to play and this is the moment that I had waited for the whole morning. Change to my swim wear and jump to the water and swim like a fish. I enjoyed playing at the strong wave and the playground with some slides.
Thanks to Kenny Rogers ROASTERS for invite me, my Mommy and my Ti Ti to the charity run. I am proud being part of the charity and covering the meaningful event for them. I am also happy to see that more poor families had nutritious food now and with the contributions from KRR and all the participants to the run. Hope more organisations will organised such event so that everyone can be part of it. Run with family and run for charity. Need to reserve my 2nd place next year (As per photo below). He he he...
