As part of PPB’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiative to promote a healthy lifestyle for employees, the Company has been sponsoring the registration fees for its employees to encourage participation in the Standard Chartered KL Marathon (SCKLM) since 2014.
On 21 May 2017, 11 employees participated in the SCKLM’s Corporate Challenge category to raise funds for charity as well as to promote team spirit. PPB runners successfully completed their event within the allocated time and finished in 5th place.
As one of the premier running events in Malaysia, the 9th edition of the SCKLM attracted almost 36,000 runners. The route covered several landmarks in the city centre such as the Petronas Twin Towers, National Monument, National Mosque, Parliament building, National Palace, Little India and other places of interest.
PPB staff are encouraged to participate in organised runs and exercise regularly for better health and fitness.
