Given the roles of the Securities Commission of developing and regulating the capital market, we could not disassociate ourselves from the issue of funding. However, being human, we are also concerned with those who are not as privileged and fortunate as many of us.
With that in mind, more than 450 staff, family members and friends took to the street yesterday. No, we did not organise a demonstration or do anything of that nature but we had a jogathon for fun and to raise funds for the unfortunate.
Themed "Run with me for funds", this second instalment of the SC's Jogathon has attracted more participants than last year, when the activity was introduced for the first time.
I did the 4.5 km Fun Ran with my wife and daughter in-law while my son took part in the Men Open 6.5 km race. While all of us managed to complete our run, my son managed to finished 3rd in his race.
It was a great family affairs to all who participated and I hope more of this will be organised to ensure that non of us will be left behind unattended.
