Nottingham Charity Run 2017 (NCR) is the 9th annual event organized by ACE society of The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus (UNMC). The Nottingham Charity Run 2017 took place successfully on the 19th of March.  This charity run is the event held with the purpose of raising funds and fostering awareness for a charitable purpose in Malaysia. The charity run event also coincided with the 10th anniversary celebration of the ACE society!

This year, all funds raised were donated to SHELTER Home for Children, a registered welfare organization which was established in 1981 to help abused, abandoned, neglected or at-risk children. SHELTER started as a result of seven friends who wanted to help the children in a squatter settlement along Old Klang Road. What started as a humble small initiative with providing only tuition classes to children soon expanded into well-established organization in the present years.

Following the initial startup, SHELTER ventured into being a positive influence on teenagers. A youth community centre known as ‘DropZone’ was initiated as a centre youths to hang out and focus on personal initiatives. SHELTER has since the early days provided a house for families or youth suffering from various difficulties to stay in their Section 12 house or also known as Shelter 1.

Results of the run are at the end of this article.
