Running to support Thalassemia, Hamophilia and other blood illness
Patients face lengthy period of time battling the illness. Along the way, some of them start to doubt and thoughs of giving up starts to build within them. We plan to have a physical show of support to them. We will have volunteers running throughout the whole event. This is to show patients that we are willing to "run" with them throughout their treatment period. Hence, the theme: "A MILE FOR A SMILE"
We are recruiting 200 runners to run 200 miles within 5pm to 7pm. The reason for this run is to encourage the patients to face their life journey ahead with hope.
Awarness booths for blood related illness
Awareness booths will be set up by KKH Hematology Department. This will help the public to gain better understanding of the blood related illness.

Volunteers would be on site in helping of crowd control and also first aiders would also be engaged throughout the event for the safety of the "runners".
