Malaysia supermodel Amber Chia is heading the list of “Official Star Glowers” celebrities who will be running alongside participants of the 5km Mountain Dew U We Glow Fun Run 2015 at Stadium Shah Alam, Selangor on Dec 19, 2015.

The run start time at 7.00 pm will see the participants getting splashed with UV (ultraviolet) paints and emitting eye-catching coloured glow in the dark as they run along the route to the finish line.

While enjoying a unique glowing experience, participants will be running all for a good cause as a portion of event proceeds from registration fees will go to charity and will stand a chance to win lucky draw prizes worth over RM10,000.

“We are very excited to be hosting this race. Participants must be prepared to be splashed with UV paints,” said YDL Global Events managing director and co-organiser Derek Lim at the press launch for Malaysia’s first UV paint glow run at The School Jaya One, Petaling Jaya recently.

He said the UV paints in different colours are safe to use as they are non-toxic and imported from the United States.
