Mommy Jane was very happy to be part of this charitable run. Thumbs up to Kenny Rogers ROASTERS who had raised up funds of RM55,000 through the run to Food Aid Foundation and Charitable Homes to ensure all the unfortunate had enough to eat. Thanks for the invitation to create awareness to my Little Angels on the importance of giving. It was a great event where children and adults joined hand together to be part of the run with family and friends while doing their parts to the society.
