- KL Car-Free Morning X Scambuster Fun Day (Scheduled: 19 Nov 2023)
InvestSmart® will be organising KL Car-Free Morning X Scambuster Fun Day in conjunction with InvestSmart® Fest 2023 (“ISF”).
KL Car-Free Morning is a green initiative to reduce carbon emission and promote a healthy lifestyle in Kuala Lumpur through recreational sports, arts and cultural activities. The event is held every Sunday of the month, where roads are closed for all motorized vehicles to carry out various activities for public including running, cycling, walking, rollerblading and skateboarding from 7.00am to 9.00am. The route starts from Dataran DBKL (near Dataran Merdeka), and participants are led through up to maximum 7 kilometers of major streets in Kuala Lumpur’s Golden Triangle.
For this purpose, InvestSmart® will be organising a running event targeting 3,000 paid participants. Similar to previous ScamBuster activities organised by InvestSmart®, it is intended for the proceeds raised to be channeled to a charitable cause to be identified. Given the nature of KL Car-Free Morning initiative, this event will also be in line with the spirit of sustainability that the SC have been propagating. Furthermore the participants are able to learn about anti-scam awareness along the way as we will be having anti-scam messaging imbedded during the activity.
