As the new market leader among English business weekly publications, it’s no surprise Focus Malaysia (FM) staff are also following in its footsteps. Two teams representing FM in the recent Bursa Bull Charge 2016 on Sept 8 bagged the top two placings in the Media Relay category.
Dan Loh, Michelle Rondilla, Purvinn Raj and Jacky Loh, who were in the FM first team, took second place with a run time of 37 minutes 9 seconds. The FM second team, which had Wong Wei Ru, Nagendra Raou, Silas Emmanuel and Dharmarajah (Kanna), claimed the top spot with a run time of 35 minutes 29 seconds.
Wei Ru and Dan are from Focus Marketing Technologies; Michelle and Jacky from the iGAR Worldwide division; Kanna, Silas, Purvinn and Nagen from FM’s circulation department.
The Bursa Bull Charge is an annual running event that gathers the country’s top CEOs and young executives in a fun and competitive charity run. This year’s edition saw it raise RM1.9 mil for various women and children charities, with more than 2,000 executives participating.
Dan said both teams trained almost every day for a few weeks leading up to the run, even going for a run following the route before race day. Despite winning the first and second spots, they faced steep competition from other runners, he added.
For their efforts, they each won a certificate, finisher medal and bragging rights. Syabas to both teams!
