25th PJ Half Marathon
The PJ Half Marathon themed 'RUN BECAUSE YOU CAN' in support of the physically challenged was held on 30 September 2012 to good response.
As part of PPB Group Berhad's CSR programme to encourage fitness and health amongst PPB staff in addition to contributing to a charitable cause, a total of 202 staff of PPB Group and family members participated in this event. PPB also contributed cash of RM10,000 towards the Run which was channelled to welfare homes for the physically challenged.
PPB's wholly-owned subsidiary, Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC), which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year was the Presenter of this popular annual run which was coincidentally also a celebration of its 25th year. GSC brought costumed characters like Iron Man, Captain America, Loki and other popular movie personalities to join in the 3 kilometre Fun Run. To add more fun, GSC gave away candy floss and had face painting sessions as well as carnival games.
FFM Group, an 80%-subsidiary of PPB, also gave away "Massimo Favorito and Duetto" Fun Buns and "V-soy" drinks to all participants.
On the whole, everyone had a great time at the Run.
