28 May 2016 – Every living thing needs water to survive and yet many are using water with scant regard for conservation and continue to pollute our rivers. Kuching Water Board (KWB) organised its first Water is Life Run to increase awareness on the importance of water in all aspects of life.
It was a wet morning. “Lucky the rain stopped before the race began” quipped one of the participants. The 5km route took runners through an interestingly new route before finishing at KWB. At the closing ceremony, Encik Mohammad Sabari bin Shakeran, General Manager of KWB, handed a donation of RM2,000.00 each to three charitable organisations.
