Raising spirits and drumming up excitement, the Torch Run is set to light up Malaysia! Youth and Sports Minister YB Brig. Gen. Khairy Jamaluddin recently set in motion the KL2017 Torch Run which is set to traverse the length and breadth of the country in the lead up to the 2017 SEA Games starting on 19 August. Helping to fuel the spirit of Rising Together, the run will highlight unique places in each state it passes through and is open to all participants.
With the successful conclusion of the Rising Together Baton Run, which made its way around Southeast Asia over the last two months, the baton was swapped out for the torch in Johor Bahru marking the final countdown to the opening ceremony of KL2017.
