Sunkist Charity Fun Run 04/11/2003

Sunkist Juices is the official sponsor of the 14th edition of the Charity Fun Run organised by the St Theresa Junior Lyceum in Mriehel. This year the Charity Fun Run will be held on Wednesday 19th November 2003.

Currently over 1,200 students are dedicating their free time to collect funds for this year's two kilometre fun run. The donations collected will go to Caritas (Malta), the Kare 4 Kenya Foundation and the Mriehel Girls' School Benevolent Fund. 

“Our aim first is to educate our young generation to be aware of the needs of our local community and how to give a helping hand,” said Victor Camilleri, teacher at Mriehel Junior Lyceum and organiser of the Fun Run. Last year, the students at St. Theresa Junior Lyceum collected the sum of Lm5,150 and they are hoping to exceed this sum this year. They are confident of the Maltese generosity for the success of this event.

The Sunkist Fun Run will start at 12.30pm from the St. Theresa Junior Lyceum, Mriehel and will pass San Anton Gardens before returning back to the school premises.

Other sponsors contributing towards the Sunkist Charity Fun Run include Vodafone Malta Limited, HSBC Bank Malta plc, Gatorade, Kyocera Mita copiers, Nike, Urban Jungle Street Stores, Fiat, Perfect Screen Printers Ltd, Kinder Sorpresa and Tronky, Subway Sandwich of St. Julians and Paceville, Badger Karting, Big Ben Interiors, JB Group, Exor Educational Services, Wing Tsun Martial Arts and Bay Street Hotel Tourist Complex.

Mr. Victor Camilleri, assisted by other teachers from St. Theresa Junior Lyceum and members from the Pembroke Athleta Kyocera Mita Copiers (Athletic Section), will be coordinating the Sunkist Charity Fun Run. Other schools are invited to participate both in the Fun Run and other activities including exhibitions, drama, art, Maltese prose and a gymnastics display. Students will also have talks from Caritas and Kare 4 Kenya to create an awareness of the work carried out on voluntary basis in the community.
