Danajamin Mighty Run 2019 #Feel the Spectrum Is Back

KUALA LUMPUR – The annual Danajamin Mighty Run (DMR) is coming into its fourth year. DMR is one of Danajamin Nasional Berhad’s (Danajamin) CSR programme whereby all the ticket sales proceeds from the run are contributed to The National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM). NASOM is a non-profit nationwide NGO which Danajamin has been supporting for the past 6 years.

Last year, 2,500 participants took part in Danajamin Mighty Run 2018 (DMR 2018) including participations from corporate figures, parents of/and autistic children and from the general public of all ages. DMR 2018 had successfully raised RM110,000 for NASOM. Also present at the event was YB Hannah Yeoh, Deputy Minister of Women, Family and Community Development to flag-off the 5KM (Fun Run) & 10KM (Competitive) categories.

During last year’s DMR 2018, YB Hannah Yeoh also visited the Snoezelen Room built on site. Snoezelen Room consists of placing the person in a soothing and stimulating environment. These rooms are specially designed to deliver stimuli to various senses using lighting effects, colors, sounds, music, scents etc.

DMR 2018 #feelthespectrum featured Art Jamila in the design of the running shirt as part of creating more awareness on autism to the public.

For DMR 2019, Danajamin has partnered with Amira Daniea, a 14 year old autistic painter who discovered her passion for drawing and painting at the age of 4.  Amira Daniea’s beautiful rendition of KLCC Twin Towers landscape are featured to complement the DMR 2019’s collaterals. 

This year’s Danajamin Mighty Run, will be held at the Taman Botani Negara Shah Alam on Sunday, 8 December 2019 covering three (3) main categories; 1KM Autism Family Walk (RM35), 5KM Fun Run (RM50) and 10KM competitive run (RM80).

In keeping with the #feelthespectrum tagline introduced last year, the DMR this year will also feature several sensory activities covering four (4) senses (sight, hearing, smell and touch) along the 1KM Autism Walk, 5KM and 10KM running routes. This is to provide participants with a heightened sensory experience and awareness of activities that those on the spectrum enjoy, find relaxing and therapeutic.

This year, we are also introducing “plogging” to the walkers in the 1KM category. Plogging is a combination of jogging whilst picking up litter. As both an environmentally-friendly and healthy activity, it actually burns 100 more calories than simply jogging.

“Danajamin Mighty Run 2019 is an annual charitable cause organized in order to provide acceptance and awareness about Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). We believe in recurring initiatives to promote sustainability of the nonprofit organisations,” says Mohamed Nazri Omar, Managing Director / Chief Executive Officer of Danajamin.

Through Danajamin Mighty Run, we hope to elevate an on-going support to the Autism community. It aims to nurture their personal growth and unlock their potential. Our society should strive to celebrate people of all abilities, namely those with ASD.

Danajamin has been collaborating with NASOM since 2012 to assist and provide opportunities for this underserved community. This is in line with our passion to ensure better access to quality education for all. Danajamin previously assisted NASOM’s cause by helping to set up the Early Intervention Centre in Setapak, Kuala Lumpur.

This was followed by other small scale projects to help provide a more comfortable and conducive environment for the children across various centres. The NASOM has 19 centres nationwide which provide a variety of programmes for close to 500 students ranging from 3 years to 30 years of age.
