SSPCA (Sarawak Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) | SSPCA Animazing Race 2016 drew a total of 700 runners and 120 volunteers.
There were also 77 participants from The Salvation Army Childrens and Boys Homes, 10 participants from The Special Olympics, and six from the Deaf Society.
According to SSPCA president Datin Dona Drury Wee, their participation fees were sponsored by friends on Facebook.
She voiced her relief that yesterday’s weather was beautiful as last year’s race had to be cancelled due to the haze.
“The Animazing Race is organised in the hope of reaching out to a different cross section of Kuching’s society and creating greater awareness about SSPCA, its activities and our fund-raising efforts,” she said in her speech after the race was over.
Every year, the Animazing Race picks a different animal paw design for their finisher medal, and for this year–its fourth–they have chosen the sun bear.
SSPCA aims to raise greater awareness about the smallest bear in the world. Borneo is home to one of its sub-species – honey bears, named thus as honey is their favourite meal.
Drury-Wee also said they wanted to highlight to runners and the general public that these bears should never be used as a photo opportunity.
“There are some people out there who catch sun bears, hold them captive and drug them so that they are calm enough to have their photo taken with. This is also what happens to tiger cubs and other wild animals. Please do not support such photo-taking opportunities as the animals are not humanely treated, nor are they allowed to exercise their natural behaviour.”
Also present was SSPCA chairperson Rebecca D'Cruz, and secretary Gracie Geikie. Kuching North City Commission (DBKU) Datuk Bandar Datuk Abang Abdul Wahap Abang Julai was there to flag off the 10km run at 6am and the 5km run at 6.45am.
Animazing Race is supported by DBKU, with Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) as its official venue and Place Borneo as its event management partner.
It is sponsored by Lea Sports Centre (LSC), Sunifeel, The Mandarin Restaurant and Supreme Cold Storage Sdn Bhd, and partnered with Revive Isotonic Drink, Premier Echo Sound & Lighting System, DBC Kuching, Plaza Merdeka, Water Genesis, Phoenix Gym, CTS Event Management, O-Run-Utan Running Club, and Prestige Photography.
As one of the sponsors of Animazing Race 2016, LSC came in with a big amount allocated for this cause.
LSC’s CSR initiative is to assess and support events that will benefit the community. They want to promote the power of sports as a medium to create awareness on giving back to society.
LSC also sponsored finisher T-shirts and adidas gift vouchers for the top 10 winners in the 10km Veteran Men and Women category, and 10km Open Men and Women category.
Meanwhile, the top 10 winners of the 5km
Open Men and Women category received finisher t-shirts.
