NKF Glow Run 2019 @ Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang

NKF Glow Run @ Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang


When was my last run? It's been a while. I was pretty pumped then when I had the opportunity to attend the NKF (National Kidney Foundation) Glow Run last week over at Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang (MAEPS). All for a good cause, even better!

The atmosphere was great, food, music, and more. The NKF Glow Run was in conjunction with the  National Kidney Foundation of Malaysia’s (NKF) 50th anniversary. Not quite to my expectations in terms of the neon lights, but hey, we saw over 3,000 participants celebrating life in an evening of pure amusement, laughter, sweat and sheer exhilaration!

The NKF Glow Run was aimed at promoting kidney health among young adults while increasing awareness of the prevalence of chronic kidney disease in a fun-filled and exciting manner through interaction with lights, which was undeniably a radiating feature of the entire event.

Thumbs up!

“A great amount of effort has been put by the NKF team and various partners to ensure that the NKF Glow Run is a unique, excitement-filled and exhilarating event. Though this event was a joyous celebration of life, it also carried with it a rather serious message of the importance of preventing kidney disease as well as raising funds and hope for 1,700 NKF dialysis patients,” said Chua Hong Wee, Chief Executive Officer of NKF.

Dato’ Danny Cheng (钟振强), Organising Chairman of Next Drive Group and the Next Drive Group team handed over a dialysis machine to Mr Chua Hong Wee (蔡逢伟), CEO of NKF Malaysia.

All proceeds garnered from the NKF Glow Run will be channelled towards subsidising dialysis treatment for more than 1,700 poor patients who are currently undergoing treatment at the 28 NKF dialysis centres across Malaysia. The event also saw the handover of 3 dialysis machines by H.T.C Motorcycle Club, Global Heal Group and Next Drive & Friends to NKF.

The venue of  NKF Glow Run was decorated with illuminated photo booths and LED swings, adding to the vibrancy of the night’s programme. There’s the night market, food trucks and even the run’s own music festival featuring DJ Alexis Grace, one of Malaysia’s top DJs.
