Kuala Lumpur, 16 March 2015 – Run for OA is launched under the community service arm (RunNat GRACE) of Run for the Nation (RunNat), a Christian ministry that empower youths to be agents of change in the nation through community engagement works and charity fundraising efforts. It has been three months after the devastating flood that caused our nation a great loss and it is recorded as one of the worst flood in history of Malaysia.

Based heavily on Micah 6:8 that says “ H​e has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”, t​his project provides a platform for the young to be challenged and empowered to act in faith and give back to the community.

Concurrently, Run for OA donation drive aims to raise funds for Orang Asli community, specifically the Temiars in the interior of Kuala Betis whom lives were affected. Major issues that were realized after assessments are contaminated water source and other social issues.

The prayer run is set to happen in the heart of the community itself. The prayer runners are to intercede and declare the Lord’s promises over the land, encouraging the community with prayer in the midst of all the devastation. The prayer run will start early morning with a route of 5km trail and expected to end in SK Kuala Betis.
