Dear all, as part of the #run4MakeAWishMalaysia team, we are running the Angkor Wat Half Marathon for Make-A-Wish Malaysia, in an effort to raise funds so that we can make more wishes come true. At Make-A-Wish Malaysia, we grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Please, support us with a donation.
It all started out when I asked a group of friends let’s run and raise funds for the kids of Make-A-Wish Malaysia, at the Angkor Wat Half Marathon. As Patron of Make-A-Wish Malaysia, I was thrilled that my friends were immediately ready to take on the challenge. And before you know it, game on!
Each of us in the team are running different races, Aubry will be running 21km half marathon, whilst I will be running 3km.
Make-A-Wish Malaysia allows the child and their family to put aside their challenges for a day by immersing themselves in the activities organised on Wish Day. Each wish sees families filled with hope, strength and joy, and empowered to once again take up the fight against the medical challenges they face.
For example, wishes that have been granted by Make-A-Wish Malaysia include:
- Zi Yuan, 11 yrs old with Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma, his wish was to have an iPad to stay in touch with his friends via social media.
- Safiyah, 13 yrs old with complex heart disease, her wish was to be a chef.
- Murkeish, 11yrs old with Leukaemia, his wish was to meet his favourite footballer of Manchester City, Sergio Leonel Agüero Del Castillo.
- Rose, 7 yrs old with Leukaemia, her wish was to be a Princess for the day.
- Ali, 10 yrs old with Pre-B Cell Lymphoma, his wish was to have a new bicycle to cycle to school.
Please help us reach our target by donating in support of our run, and bring a smile and lasting memories to more kids with Make-A-Wish Malaysia!
We strongly believe in the life-changing Power of a Wish, and with your help, we can start the chain reaction of hope, strength and joy — one that inspires the child, their family, and everyone around them.
Thank you once again for your kind and generous support.
Zatashah & Aubry
