Open to all ages, the run attracted more than 500 participations from parents and students of the school, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Pasir Gudang students and local community from all over Johor Bahru.
“It was a great feeling to see so many people come out to support the Run for Hope and raise funds for cancer charities,” said Benjamin Marsh, Principal of Excelsior International School adding that all proceeds from the event goes to local cancer charities.
Together with AME i-Park, Els Golf Club, Desaru and Entourage Removals, the run offered exciting prizes in their lucky draw including hotel stays, restaurant vouchers and a golf, spa and aquatic experience package.
Among other highlights on that day were their Open Day and annual International Food Fair where the Excelsior International School Parents Support Group sponsored food stalls and sold food from around the world including India, China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and UK. The school’s Rotary Interact Club sponsored by Rotary Club of Johor Bahru Sentral also sold cold drinks to participants and families.
