It all started when we join a fun run last 2013, thinking of how we can give back the blessings we are receiving from the business. At that very moment, we decided to make our own AffiniTea Run For A Cause. We didn’t hire any organizer because we don’t have any budget for it but since we believe in the saying that “there is always a first time” and if you’re happy with what you are doing then you will achieve what you desire. As we prepare for the event, many challenges arises such as suppliers, coordination and even relationships were slightly damage but we never fail to go back to our purpose that is where we started why we have this kind of event. We strongly believe that purpose must come first in order for us to be successful in what we are doing.
A GLIMPSE OF AFFINITEA
