Final Tally for A Piece Of Hope (APOH) 2009 and Brief Information for APOH 2010

How time flies... It has been a good 7 months since APOH 2009 concluded its climb up Mt. Kinabalu in July 2009. The climb was for Persatuan Kanak-Kanak Istimewa Kajang (PKIK). Our target to raise RM100,000 for them was indeed a tall order given the global economic situation that has affected not only businesses but the 'local man on the street' as well.

We are proud to announce that at the end of January 2010, the fund raised for PKIK has surpassed our target. The final tally stood at RM113,204. Although it took a long time to reach this figure, it was indeed well worth the wait.

A very big THANK YOU once again to all our generous donors whom have contributed to this fund.

Now... Its time for APOH 2010. As the committee is gearing up for yet another climb up Mt. Kinabalu, preparations are also underway for the charity part. Up until today there are 3 NGOs that are on the selection list as the beneficiary of our climb. The committee members will be finalising the selection hopefully by mid-March. This year's APOH 2010 have already gotten overwhelming response so far. As many as 140 would be climbers or APOHers have already signed up with some even bought their flight tickets.

APOH 2010 will run from 18 - 19 July. More information to come...
