The Cyberjaya campus came alive with the sound of quacks and splashes as students from the Faculty of Applied Communication (FAC) organised the much-anticipated Quack-A-Splash water fun run on 3 February 2024. This exciting event, organised as part of their Event Planning and Management subject, brought together nearly 200 participants in a morning of fun, fitness, and philanthropy.
Prof. Dato’ Dr. Mazliham Mohd Su’ud, President of MMU was also invited to grace the fun run together with the presence of FAC Dean, Dr. Mokhtaruddin Ahmad and other faculty members. The Quack-A-Splash water fun run was a colorful extravaganza that kicked off early at 7:00 AM, with participants geared up in their vibrant yellow duck-themed shirts and armed themselves with water guns.
The event’s highlight was the 2-kilometer run that took participants on a scenic route around campus, complete with water stations and cheerful volunteers and crews cheering them on. Along the way, runners were treated to various duck-themed obstacles and surprises, adding an extra element of fun to the quacktastic adventure!
Generously sponsored by Glaze Eatery, Hong Leong Islamic Asset Management, and Jet Fuels Sdn. Bhd., Quack-A-Splash was a community celebration supporting Yayasan Multimedia University (YUM)’s education department. Proceeds from the event helped provide tertiary education opportunities for underprivileged students. Post-run activities included a cool-down session by Celebrity Fitness, a duck-themed photobooth, and vendors offering diverse options.
Overall, Quack-A-Splash showcased the creativity, passion, and community spirit of the students from the Faculty of Applied Communication, demonstrating the power of unity for a noble cause.
