Hunting for a good cause
FANS of ‘treasure hunts’ and good-hearted Malaysians alike can look forward to spending an exciting day solving puzzles, re-discovering the beauty of our city-centre and contribute to a noble cause at the same time. The Gnana Bodha Sabha (GBS) Motor Charity Hunt is back with RM15,000 cash and prizes to be won.
This year, the GBS Charity Hunt will be organised tomorrow as a half day event and will be opened to both novice and seasoned hunters.
The event will kick off at Padang Merbok, Kuala Lumpur and participants will be on a ‘Discover Kuala Lumpur’ route that will surely prove to be challenging and tricky.
The funds raised from this event will be channelled towards worthy causes to assist the less privileged communities in the Klang Valley. GBS’s primary focus is to provide long term support and guidance through cultural fundamentals.
According to GBS Malaysia president Kunasegaran Marimuthu, “Judging from the response we have received over the years, we look forward to another exciting event for the participants to have a day of fun whilst it being a brilliant way to support the less fortunate.”
“Our GBS activities are community-centric, offering cultural training and motivational camps which are in line with the Government’s vision to provide a level playing field for children from various communities and provide them with opportunities they would usually have missed out on,” he added.
Since it was introduced in 2010, the GBS Charity Hunt has attracted encouraging participation in the past two years.
Last year alone, the response was overwhelming with about 200 participants taking part in the hunt.
The success of this event is credited largely to sponsors, who lent their names and financial support.
