The Perak Palliative Care Society (PPCS) is organising Hospice Run 2018 in conjunction with World Hospice and Palliative Care Day observed on 13th October annually. The global theme this year is “Palliative Care – Because I Matter”.
PPCS is a non-profit NGO that provides free palliative care services to patients with life threatening illness, irrespective of age, race or religion. Read my post on PPCS HERE or check PPCS official Facebook Page.
The primary objective of Hospice Run is to increase awareness among the public regarding palliative care, as well as to promote a healthy lifestyle. Therefore, along the 5km route are information booths. Free medical check-ups are also provided to runners.
The starting point and finishing line are both at Polo Ground (Sultan Abdul Aziz Recreation Park).
Registration to this charity fun run is now open. All are welcome. Entry fee is RM53 per participant but early bird discount is available until 16th August.
