Pilley Alumni Virtual Run 5.0 organized by Methodist Pilley Institute Alumni Association. The purpose of this activity is to raise fund for education and help students with financial difficulties. This fund has been in existence for 4 years. Up to 2019, this fund helped more than 20 students and also raised new building funds for Methodist Pilley Institute during last year with a total funding of RM120, 000.
During the past four years, this activity has been carried out in real run. This year, due to the impact of COVID-19, it has been changed to online virtual running. This event aimed to raise more funds in helping students to realize their dream of going to college. The theme of this year’s run is Wisdom Create Future. We hope that students can gain more knowledge through college life and create more positive changes in society.
