Students and staff of Curtin University, Sarawak Malaysia (Curtin Sarawak), as well as members of the public in Miri, are invited to participate in the Miri Ultimate Ninja Run being organised by the university’s Student Council and Red Crescent Voluntary Aid Detachment (Curtin VAD 57).
The obstacle course run at the university’s campus from 6 am to 12 noon on June 4 2016 is the first of its kind to be held in Miri with the aim of raising funds for Zero Strays Miri, a Miri-based voluntary organisation dedicated to the care and control of stray animals in the city. Over 500 participants are expected to take part.
Apart from raising funds and awareness of Zero Strays Miri’s Trap, Neuter and Release/Rehome (TNR) programme, the organisers also hope to promote a healthy lifestyle among the staff and students of Curtin Sarawak and the larger community through the event.
The early bird registration fee is RM50 for students and staff of Curtin Sarawak and students of other institutions of higher learning and RM65 for members of the public. The deadline for early bird registration is 24 April 2016 and students are advised to produce their student identification cards to qualify.
The standard registration fee, meanwhile, is RM60 for students and RM75 for members of the public. The fee includes an event T-shirt, finisher’s medal, certificate of participation and refreshments. For further information, email [email protected]
