This is a good awareness initiative by Public Works Department (JKR) under the Ministry of Development. Did you know that we in Brunei has the highest water consumption in the region? Maybe because we take them for granted or perhaps the water is pretty cheap as compared to other countries. Brunei records the highest water consumption of 450 litres per person per day as compared to 250 litres to other regional countries. That’s pretty high I must say and this may be attributed to a lot of factors which I won’t go into details. But the most important thing is that we are aware of this and even His Majesty the Sultan highlighted in his titah recently about Brunei’s consumption on water.

So this is a pretty good cause by JKR’s latest project – JKR REACH which is also a charity event. This is actually a run, exercise and cycle event which will take place on 27th October 2013. The launching of the campaign took place a few days ago with the Director-General at JKR, Hj Marzuke Hj Mohsin, officiating the campaign and he was also the first registrant of JKR REACH 2013. The word reach stands for ‘Run, Exercise And Cycle for Health’ and this event is jointly organised by Brunei Association of Surveyors and Engineers and Architects (PUJA) and JKR.

The event itself is in conjunction with World Water Day 2013 and it will take place at the Old Airport Road.

This is such a high consumption of water in Brunei alone

The one unique thing I like is the registration for run because they have an optional choice if the registrants want a golden number/s (single or double) for their bibs. Interesting indeed and I can tell you as of now that the single and double digits are all taken up in less than a day. Amazing!!! Each of the golden numbers costs an extra $10.

Did you know that all the proceeds from the JKR REACH 2013 will go to dedicated charitable foundations? Pusat Ehsan, Society for the Management of Autism-Related issues in Training, Education and Resources (SMARTER), Pengiran Muda Mahkota Al-Muhtadee Billah Fund for Orphans and Care and Action for Strays (CAS). I like how CAS is being included as a recipient because they haven’t been getting much support from events and so it’s nice to see CAS being selected. Thumbs up to the organisers.

Do refer to the website for more details and the closing date for the run, cycle and exercise event is on the 3rd October. The cut off participants is 5,000. You can download the form here and register at the counter at JKR building during office hours.

Hj Marzuke was the first registrant of the event. How sporting is that? 😀

The rest follow suit to register for the event

The Golden Bib number registration form. However, the single and double digits are all being taken.

There’s no online registration so you will have to physically go to the JKR building and there will be a dedicated desk for registration. Do come during office hours only.

JKR building is located at the Old Airport, next to the Ministry of Education building
