Perodua has contributed an Axia to the National Kidney Foundation in conjunction with the 10th anniversary of the ‘World Kidney Day’ celebrations. The public can win the car through Spot & Ride, a contest aimed at creating awareness for kidney care and causes of kidney failure.

Part of the ‘World Kidney Day’ celebrations at Sunway Pyramid (February 28 to March 1), Spot & Ride will see participants contributing a RM10 entry fee for the chance to win an Axia.

Each entry gives a participant a 30-second window to search and find a winning ticket in an Axia. The ticket can be redeemed for attractive prizes such as goodie bags and discount vouchers, or it can be submitted as an entry ticket to win the car through a lucky draw contest on March 29.

As of November 2014, the National Kidney Foundation needs to raise RM12 million annually to subsidise the dialysis treatments costs for 1,509 patients who seek treatment at its 28 dialysis centres nationwide.

“This collaboration with the National Kidney Foundation is our way to create awareness about the cause of kidney problems and to encourage people to live a healthier life,” said Perodua president and CEO Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh.

“Therefore, all funds raised from the contest and road show will be channelled to the NKF which will be used by the kidney patients who are registered under the foundation.”
