Tesco Malaysia recently hosted a ‘Walk for Life’ event to raise money for ‘Helping Children with Leukaemia’ in partnership with University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC) in Kuala Lumpur.

The event was one of the many activities for this campaign, which the team launched in August 2012 to raise RM1 million over the next three years. The event was a fantastic success with over 4,000 colleagues taking part.

They collected a total donation of RM100,000 (over GBP20,000) on the day. The 3.4km walk attracted our colleagues and residents as well as some leukaemia survivors.

One of the participants, Muhamad, 5, diagnosed with leukaemia last year, was among the first to receive RM20,000 from the Campaign. His mom, Zubaidah, also took part in the walk to show her support for the Campaign. ​
