He also thanked the State Ministry of Youth and Sports, City Hall, Federal Youth and Sports Department Sabah, Sports Commissioner, city police, Music Rights Malaysia and volunteers for their support.

According to Tan, the 20th Sutera Harbour 7K Charity Run will be on July 18, 2020, Saturday. He hopes that the community, especially those who are living around Kota Kinabalu will continue to support this charitable event as the amount of Thalassaemia seems to be rising each year and needs the help of the community even more.
