We thank all our 27 runners from Head Office, BII, MPI and Maybank Singapore for putting on their running shoes for a good cause. Congratulations to  our cheerleading team too who won the champion title for the cheerleading category. The team literally fired up the event with an energetic dance medley with some great acrobatics and eye-catching moves culminating with an impressive fire-eating performance that wowed the crowd and the judges!!
