12th ROASTERS Chicken Run at Desa Waterpark

I heard my friends told me before on the Roasters Chicken Run where all the participants had to hold the egg and run like a Chicken and I always wonder how it looks like. The opportunity came when Mommy Jane said will bring us to Desa Waterpark to join the run for this year. I was very excited and was the first to woke up that day to join their 12th Run.

Kenny Rogers Roasters will use that amount of money to provide the needy ones with nutritious wholesome meals as well as donating funds to various organisations through Food Aid Foundation.

I had spend a great Sunday to witness a run for a good cause. 12th ROASTERS Chicken Run had inspired me to join more marathon this year to help people in need. Thanks to KRR for the great event that brings my family and friends together on that weekend while doing our part to the charitable homes. Hope to join you again next year for the 13th ROASTERS Chicken Run. Yeah...
