TOP GLOVE RUN 2023: PROMOTING WELLNESS, EMBRACING DIVERSITY AND GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
Top Glove Run 2023:
Promoting Wellness, Embracing Diversity and Giving Back to the Community
Shah Alam, Saturday, 2 December 2023 Top Glove Corporation Bhd’s annual run, the Top Glove Run 2023 (“TG Run”), returned this year, bigger and better, marking a significant milestone as it opened its doors to the public for the first time, with proceeds donated towards charitable causes.
The event, taglined ‘Bound Together, Achieve Together’, saw an impressive turnout of over 1,600 participants from diverse backgrounds, including Top Glove local and foreign employees, Malaysian Paralympians, Persons with Disabilities, event partners and members of the public.
The tagline Bound Together, Achieve Together draws parallels between how both gloves and society are created. Just as gloves are made by combining quality materials, a society which is progressive and accomplished is borne out of shared values that foster unity amongst its members. Participants also sported a pink running shirt in keeping with the event’s Bubble Gum theme. The selection of the colour pink which traditionally has feminine associations, was deliberate; emphasising the importance of inclusivity and being in the “pink” of health, values deeply interwoven into Top Glove’s corporate culture.
The run also saw Top Glove teaming up with several external Partners or sponsors, towards creating a more impactful and enjoyable event for participants. The event partners included Yayasan Prihatin Nasional; Association of Development Finance Institutions of Malaysia (ADFIM) with the support of Bank Simpanan Nasional (BSN) and Credit Guarantee Corporation Malaysia (CGC); Courtyard by Marriott Setia Alam; Rotary Club of Shah Alam; Universiti Malaya; Rehabilitation Unit of Pusat Perubatan Universiti Malaya (PPUM) and Nav Global 360, as well as Top Glove’s Board of Directors and management.
Proceeds from the Run were donated to the following 4 charity organisations, representatives from which were on hand to receive mock cheques for the amount of RM10,000 each, at a meaningful ceremony held during the Run:
Top Glove Executive Chairman, Tan Sri Dr. Lim Wee Chai, who participated in the 3km Run, said, “Healthcare has always been at the heart of our business and with this event, we hope to continue spreading the message of health and well-being to a broader community. We are also pleased to donate proceeds from the participation fees to several worthy causes, representing Top Glove’s unwavering commitment to health, unity and giving back to society.”
We were honoured to have 23 Persons with Disabilities from the Rehabilitation Unit of Pusat Perubatan Universiti Malaya (PPUM) and 33 Paralympics from the Malaysian Olympism in Action Society participate in the run, to commemorate International Day of Persons with Disabilities which fell on 3 December 2023. Meanwhile, Top Glove Global Doctors (TGGD) also collaborated with Rotary Club Shah Alam to introduce the Save The Heart programme aimed at promoting heart health amongst the community.
The front entrance of Top Glove Tower and neighbouring carpark were transformed into a bustling carnival for the annual run, complete with food trucks, a 360 degree photo booth, medical booth for participants facilitated by TGGD and University Malaya paramedics, as well as a lucky draw, ensuring a fun filled and activity packed day for everyone. Top Glove’s mascot, Toppy, was also seen interacting with and cheering participants on.
