Still time to register for charity ride
THOSE who missed the opportunity to sign up for the Clean, Green and Safe Charity Ride 2012 in Penang still have a chance to do so.
The ride, which was introduced two years ago, will kick off at 7am on June 24.
The organisers have decided to extend the closing date.
Registration can be done at the St John’s Ambulance Malaysia (SJAM) Penang premises in Air Itam.
The route covers a distance of about 30km starting from TAR college, going through Jalan Batu Feringghi and Jalan Teluk Bahang and back to the college.
Penang Municipal Council member Lim Cheng Hoe said participants would be given a jersey to be collected today and tomorrow at the SJAM from 9am to 5pm.
Late registrants, though, might receive their jerseys behind time as the organisers have prepared only an initial 1,000 pieces.
“About 900 people have registered for the ride.
“We hope the event will raise RM40,000 for SJAM,” said Lim.
The registration fee is RM40.
There are more than 10 lucky draw prizes up for grabs.
