“A hundred kilometres to inspire a thousand dreams”
Different collars, different lives, different time zones. We all live in our own little bubbles – but what is the one thing that we all have in common? The ground that we live on, and how do we strive to make it a better place? One friend, one runner – Alex Au Yong is in pursuit of changing lives of underprivileged kids.
His mission is to run a challenging 100KMs across Klang Valley to support the ambitions and dreams of the children of StArt Society. StArt Society is an academy that provides art classes to the underpriviledged youths. Through the use of music, drama, speech, writing and more, StArt Society aims to help the youths unlock and express their love for the arts and we are giving our full support!
