The Ride is co organised by The Penang State Government, Penang Sports Council, KOTRT and Malakoff Corporation Berhad (Malakoff) and is part of the Company's flagship corporate social responsibility platform – the Malakoff Community Partnerships. Through this Ride, Malakoff aims to combine sports and healthy living with community outreach. While the participants paddle into the dawn of 2012 traversing route with a reinforced commitment to healthy lifestyles, they also aim to raise fund for charity organisations that will be announced during the event launch.
To ensure a smooth and safe ride, authorities from Polis Diraja Malaysia, Majlis Perbandaran Pulau Pinang, Majlis Perbandaran Seberang Perai (MPSP), Juru Auto City, Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM), KTM Motonation and Delta Business Solutions will be working together to extend necessary support.
