Ralph DIXON (MAS) & Jeff LAU (MAS)

maf-illustration4I am running the 250km Sahara ultra-marathon (MARATHON DES SABLES) in April 2014 with fellow Malaysian (Jeff Lau) to raise money for the Malaysian AIDS Foundation (MAF), specifically for women and children infected or affected by HIV/AIDS, and for the MAF Red Ribbon Youth Programme.

In 2010, we managed to raise over RM100,000 for the MAF doing the same grueling race due to the very kind support of Muchy’s, Jobstreet, Sime Darby Foundation, Ministry of Youth and Sports, L’Oreal, Shell, Air Asia X, and some very generous individuals. I will be paying all costs relating to the race participation of about RM25,000 which will be my contribution to the cause. We would appreciate any donations to help people less fortunate than us affected by this terrible disease which requires active testing and treatment.

In 2010 after I crossed the finishing line I swore I would never go back and do the same race again. However, funding for the MAF has been cut back, and I would be so grateful for any response from you, and of course even more grateful for confirmation of any contributions to the fund-raising effort – 100% of the funds raised will go to the MAF.
