Saturday, 10 March 2012, Kuching: A total of 220 excited employees from CMS Cement, CMS Clinker and CMS Concrete Products turned up as early as 6 am last Saturday, all fresh and ready in their sports attire to take part in Cement SBU’s 1st Quarterly Run for the year. The event held at the Tabuan Jaya Mini Stadium was flagged off by Cement SBU Head, Tuan Haji Othman Abdul Rani at 7 am sharp.
This year’s new ruling is rather challenging as participants would need to complete at least 12 rounds at the running track in order to earn their CSR man-hours! The determination showed by everyone to reach the finishing line was amazing. The warm-up and cool-down aerobic exercise was led by CMS Cement staff, Kadir Sahari, assisted by Norlinda, Jelening, Marvin Tarang and Puli Anyut of Centre Management.
Not only did everyone go home feeling healthier, all were happy that they could contribute to a good cause too! A donation amounting RM1,000 collected from the participants was handed over to Encik Abang Iskandar Halil, who received the money on behalf of Rumah Seri Kenangan, Kuching. The donation will be used for the up-keep of the old folks home.
Having fun and staying healthy at the same time certainly made everyone look forward to the 2nd Quarterly Run, to be held sometime in June 2012.
