TURCR Crosses Borders With New Mechanics...

With the Comrades Marathon slightly less than a couple of months away and with The Ultimate Race for Cancer Research fund raising campaign happening since February 2012, CARIF upon request has managed to step up the campaign to yet another level.

CARIF has many friendly friends who has expressed interest to assist in this fund raising campaign and therefore have widen the field to anyone who is interested to also volunteer to sign up a sponsorship drive and act as an "ambassador" in helping raise funds whether at your workplace, among friends and families or even the public.

Next, as per request by many of our outstation and oversea friends and potential donors, CARIF has managed to set-up a donation payment gateway made available via Maybank2U (M2U) and also PayPal with immediate effect. This will really make the donation drive much friendlier especially for oversea donors.
