For 2014 Run, MPIB decided to do more by joining hands with runners to collect running or sports shoes for the Orang Asli community as runners shared that they change their shoes after 800 to 1,000 km to prevent injuries. MPIB is giving 100% support to this CSR Good Deed Shoes 2014 project
Members of the Organizing Committee has met with representatives from the Orang Asli Community and it was gathered that there are many settlements under his care needed shoes and for a start, 2 communities were identified and they are from Sungai Larah, Ulu Yam and Bukit Tunggul, Dengil, Selangor.
