24 Hour Race

On Saturday, 19th of November a team of 7 CIMP students ran the 24 hour race supported by SUKA Society. It was held at IGB International School in Sungai Buloh. Buona Vista's team leader, Nicholas Yap, helped to lead the team to the end. Other members included, Swarna Selvaraja, Luqmaan Khan, Joshua Alfred Myat, Marian Yeow, Vaibhav Malu and Pua Yen Li. Prior to the race, the team had to raise a total of RM 2000 as donation funds to the 24 Hour Race group in order to register and all money raised and collected would go to stopping human trafficking and slavery and raising awareness for the cause. The first fundraiser held was a water balloon event. Selected CIMP teachers would be voted in by students who had to pay to keep their teacher on the leaderboard. The top 5 teachers were to be struck with a water ballooned on the day of the event, with each bucket filled with water balloons sold at an auctioned price to the highest bidders. The event raised a considerable amount of money for the team and was largely successful due to the cooperation and support received by the teachers for volunteering and students for voting. Our second event, was an open mic held at W_are_house, a small cute cafe in USJ dedicated for open mic events. We had invited several feature artists and other CIMP performers to sing and showcase their talents! A good turnout of a crowd made the event a successful one and definitely memorable for the audience. Lastly, our third and final fundraiser was a bake sale. Each team member brought baked goods and it was sold at very reasonable prices for very delicious goods! In total, we managed to raise RM 2050 on the dot!
