MPI Generali Run (formerly known as MPIB Run) return for the 6th year with a new logo. The run will take place on January 8, 2017 in Padang Merbuk, Jalan Parlimen, Kuala Lumpur.
MPI Generali Insurans Berhad continues to promote environmental sustainability through its Project Good Deeds, the annual CSR initiative that compliments MPI Generali Run. The project seeks to reduce the impact of solid waste on the environment by recycling still wearable shoes and t-shirts from runners.

Our project promotes environmental sustainability by collecting pre-loved shoes and tees from runners and donating them to the Orang Asli communities. We call upon our runners to take this opportunity to help support our project while they get healthier together.'
