The YSD (Young Scientist Day) Charity Run had successfully took place on Saturday, 18th November 2017. Dr Sandra Maniam as the Chairman of this program informed that the event which was carried out in Bukit Ekspo, UPM had 700 participants consisting of 3,5 and 10 km categories. The main purpose of the program was to raise funds for the annual Young Scientist Day activities as well as to promote a healthy lifestyle among the community. Majority of the participants were residents of Klang Valley and the UPM community. The YSD Charity Run started off with Zumba for a warm-up session. Gun-off was carried out for 10 km category, 5 km and finally the 3 km category.
Uniquely, each running category is represented by different colors of shirts with pink for 3 km, blue for 5 km and green for 10 km. A display of a wonderful array of colors complimented by the lush green and picturesque landscape of UPM in the background gives a vibrant feel. The presence of merry kids joining the run with their parents and family further add on to the fun and excitement throughout the program. Much to our delight, UPM's Academic Deputy Vice-Chancellor, YBhg Professor Dr. M. Iqbal Saripan was also among the participants joining the charity run together with his two children. Also present to witness this run was the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences UPM, YBhg Professor Dato 'Dr. Abdul Jalil Nordin and Deputy Dean (Graduate and JINM), Associate Professor Dr. Samsul Bahri Md. Tamrin. After completion of the run, the program continued with a relaxing chat session with UPM's very own SEA Games athletes which include Johnathan Wong Guanjie (shooting event), Zylane Lee (synchronised swimming) and Mohd Hazrul Faiz Ahmad Sobri (hockey). This session was brilliantly conducted by two student emcees. The audience was then given the opportunity to greet and take photos witih the athletes.
