The Brunei-Muara District Office yesterday donated to Centre for Children with Special Needs (KACA) and Society for the Management of Autism Related issues in Training, Education and Resources (SMARTER) Brunei with funds raised during its JDBM Virtual Charity Run last month.
The donation of BND3,285 was handed over to the organisations by Brunei-Muara District Officer Misle bin Haji Abdul Karim.
The virtual run was a project under Brunei Bersih programme to raise public awareness on the importance of hygiene while raising funds for communities in need.
The event attracted the participation of 870 individuals to perform activities ranging from jogging to walking and cycling.
The charity run also presented seven lucky participants with BND50 meal vouchers and one-night stay at The Brunei Hotel.
Seven hundred participants also received a water pack from Cuckoo.
