myKidney FUN RUN 2019
myKidney is a national multi-disciplinary, inter-institutional Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) project on kidney transplant, under the CEO@Faculty Programme 2.0, Ministry of Education Malaysia.
With the tagline “Be someone’s reason to be Alive”, myKidney aims to develop talent and strengthen their knowledge in kidney transplantation thus increasing number of kidney transplants in Malaysia.
On 13th April 2019, myKidney will be launched and a fun run will be organised by a team led by Assoc Prof Dr Ivy Chung, a lecturer at Universiti Malaya. This event is open to healthcare community, patients and family, as well as to the public, to raise awareness on healthy lifestyle, chronic kidney disease, organ transplant and organ donation. Many public and private organisations are involved in this activity, showing their support to this meaningful event.
All profits from this event will be channelled into a Patient Welfare Account at Universiti Malaya Medical Centre and the fund raised will be used to assist underprivileged chronic kidney disease patients, who require a kidney transplant.
