I have not been consciously planting seeds for quite some time. But today's press conference at the Sutera Mall in Johor Bahru, made me want to start planting again.
Planting and nurturing the seed till it bears fruition. Thanks to Tanah Sutera Development Sdn Bhd general manager Steven Shum's sharing that "times may be bad, but if you plant good deeds in fertile ground, the seed will bear fruit in due time", adding in jest that the "returns" is not guaranteed though.
Steven said this at a media gathering to announce the Harmony Run, organised in conjunction with the company's annual Muhibbah Night and Carnival, on September 16, 2017.
For the past two decades, Tanah Sutera has been organising events to build better communities, bringing residents of different races together.
The event also coincides with Malaysia Day, which commemorates the establishment of the Malaysian federation on September 16 in 1963.
The run, which will be held at the Sutera Square, Sutera Mall, is targeting 10,000 participants and hopes to raise RM1 million for 5 beneficiaries ---
*Kiwanis Careheart Centre
*Persatuan Hospice Ark
*Calvary Victory Centre
*Fo Guang Shan HsingMa Si Education Centre
*I-Care Cancer Support Association
Besides helping the 5 non-governmental organisation to raise funds, Tanah Sutera also wants to create a wider awareness for the beneficiaries and encourage the public to lead a healthier lifestyle.
The run will be divided into three categories --- 5km (RM50) for individuals as well as (RM180) for groups of 4, and 10km (RM70) for individuals. Registration for the run is at the Sutera Mall sales booth at Level 2 from May 21 to Sept 2, 2017.
