KDU Penang UC Celebrates 25th Anniversary with Charity Drive

George Town, 13 May 2016 – In conjunction with its 25th Anniversary, KDU Penang University College is organising ‘Cycling & Charity’, a charity based project with the purpose of creating awareness among people who are physically disabled among the society on 22nd May at its campus in Anson Road. This project also aims to promote George Town as a World Cultural Heritage Site as its cycling activities involve the passage of the site itself.

In its 25 years of being one of the premier tertiary education institutes in Malaysia’s northern region, KDU Penang University College is no stranger to being actively involved in philanthropic activities. ‘Cycling & Charity’ is organised by Year 3 Bachelor students from the School of Hospitality, Tourism and Culinary Arts and funds generated from the event will be utilised by helping people who are physically disabled.

“Public will be able to experience a healthy lifestyle while participating in the cycling activities, at the same time gaining a sense of appreciation for having a sturdy physique. It is also hoped that people with disability can be treated as ordinary people in the society, and people will be aware that help is strongly needed by people who are disabled”, said Jeff Lim, lecturer in charge of the event.

‘Cycling & Charity’ is open to the entire public and they will have a choice to either participate in the Charity Ride, where participants will cycle through routes which will cover the George Town heritage area with a length of approximately 12 km, or the Charity Walk which walking routes will also cover the George Town heritage area with a length of approximately 4 km. Participants will be granted with an event certificate once they have completed the journey, where the distribution point will take place at the finishing line.

Fun photo booths and a charity food fair will also be held in the campus during the event. For more details on ‘Cycling & Charity’, contact Jeff Lim 017-479 6615.
