The charity run, with a hashtag #RunFromScams, returns for the second year to raise public awareness about scams and illegal investment schemes. All proceeds from the fun run will be channelled to a charitable cause.
The 6km fun run, expected to draw participation of 3,000 runners, will flag off at 7am around the Kuala Lumpur City Centre. Registration for the ScamBuster Run is now open to all adults at RM50, and to children between the ages of 7 to 12 years at RM25 through Ticket2u, RaceXAsia and Howei.

Launched in 2014, InvestSmart is a comprehensive investment literacy outreach campaign under the SC’s investor empowerment initiative to promote confident and informed retail investor participation in the capital market.
