Scholars of Sustenance Indonesia Will Hold “Million Meals March 2022” Charity Run/Walk

DENPASAR, Bali (BPN) – After a very successful event in 2021 that raised over IDR 1 billion in funds, this year Scholars of Sustenance (SOS) Indonesia will again run a charity long distance run/walk event titled “Million Meals March” on May 21, 2022.

The event’s purpose remains the same, to provide food for the most vulnerable people in Bali and Indonesia.

This year there are 3 tracks: 25 km, 15 km and 5 km suitable for all ages. The journey starts at Puri Anyar (The Royal Palace) of Kerambitan, Tabanan Regency, then will take you through the villages of Kerambitan, down to the dense jungles of Tabanan, through the Yeh Ho river, across the cascading beautiful rice fields, and finally to Kelating Beach, and will finish on the beachfront for well-deserved food and drinks.

“Last year we successfully held the first edition of the “Million Meals March”, and managed to raise IDR 1 billion or the equivalent of 500,000 food supplies which we distributed entirely to communities in need in Bali. We are excited to organize the same event this year and hope to raise more funds. As you know Bali has been badly affected by COVID19 and its people still need our helping hand,” said Minni Vansgaard, General Manager of SOS Indonesia.

Founder of SOS Bo H. Holmsgreen said in addition to having the opportunity to participate, the participants will learn to understand the rich traditions and culture of Bali, especially Puri Anyar (Royal Palace) Kerambitan which has been established since 1600, and also enjoy the natural beauty of Tabanan.

“If they manage to raise funds of IDR 5 million or more, participants can enjoy dinner with the Kerambitan royal family. It is possible for people to attend the Royal Palace Dinner for a fee, whether you’re a participant or not. All proceeds from this event will of course be used to provide food for communities in need throughout Bali and in Indonesia” he said.
