The Edge, 12 September 2011

So far, 136 teams and 62 CEOs have signed up for this year's edition of The Edge - Bursa Malaysia Kuala Lumpur Rat Race. With 86 participating companies thus far, the event has raised some RM1.8million for the underprivileged.

An active participant since 2004, Dijaya Corp Bhd will, for the first time, send female runners to the event. "We are very exited and looking forward to this event. It is one of the most unique races as you need to be dressed in office attire with the only concession being allowed to run in our running shoes!" says one of the ladies on the team. The race, she adds also provides a platform for corporations to fulfill their CSR in a fun way.

"Dijaya places a priority on giving something back to the community and is involved in a variety of causes and pro-bono efforts. Its participation in Kuala Lumpur Rat Race is a part of the companies social impact activities," says managing director of Dijaya.

adding that participating in an event like this is the right thing to do and hopes that every corporate sector can do something meaningful and charitable to help the needy and underprivileged.

"We hope our contributions will help create a more compassionate and a supportive community,especially within our circle of influence,"he says.
