Appreciating Heroes in Pink
Malaysia, October 29, 2022 – In conjunction with their 10th anniversary, foodpanda Malaysia organised a Panda Fun Run especially for their delivery partners at Taman Wetland Putrajaya this morning to celebrate and show their appreciation for the crucial role that they play in delivering happiness to customers. The event saw plenty of interactive activities for all to participate in, including lucky draws and photo opportunities with beloved Pau-Pau with more than 1,000 delivery partners together with their families.
The Panda Fun Run aims to express gratitude, spread positivity, and celebrate these heroes who work tirelessly to give us the privilege of enjoying meals at home and groceries delivered right to our doorstep.
“As we celebrate 10 years of delivering joy in Malaysia, we wanted to ensure this celebration was also extended to our delivery partners. They play a crucial role in bringing smiles to our customers’ faces on a daily basis. We are thankful to be working with such an amazing team of dedicated individuals over the past few years,” said foodpanda Malaysia’s Director of Operations, Kelvin Chan.
“This Panda Fun Run is not just a way for us to thank our delivery partners, but it is also for them to come together for some fun and games together with their families. They have been committed to delivering happiness to our customers, and now it’s our turn to deliver happiness to them. We are also thankful to our partners who joined us today to make this event a success”
The Panda Fun Run also emphasises the importance of delivery partners practising a healthy lifestyle. Not only is lacing up one’s shoes and going for a run with family healthy, it provides a chance for family bonding and a great way to instill a sense of community. It is important to foodpanda Malaysia for its delivery partners to be able to create new memories with their families and equally value their personal relationships.
“Rain or shine, we can see delivery partners working throughout the day to ensure all our meals are delivered in a timely manner. We are committed to significantly help boost their morale through the engagement activities that we host. It is always nice to be able to meet our delivery partners outside the office and see them in a relaxed setting. Not only do we want to celebrate all our valuable delivery partners, we also want them to work sustainably and keep a healthy work-life balance,” concluded Kelvin.
Panda Fun Run is exclusively sponsored by Spritzer, Malaysia’s best selling natural mineral water with a contribution of mineral water bottles for all those participating, and Doc2Us, a renowned online consultation platform that allows you to talk to a doctor via text chat at any time and from anywhere. Other participating partners for the rider engagement activities in this event include Igloo, Caltex, Treeletrik, Liquid Molly, Brands, Rainman and Perkeso. Restaurants such as Malabar Cafe, Grand Sari Ratu Prima and Kak CT Corner @P8 too were on ground as participating F&B vendors.
foodpanda Malaysia believes that while deliveries today may be contactless, they don’t have to be heartless. A sense of appreciation for those who make our lives more convenient should always be present. Deliver kindness in return and make an effort to thank your delivery partners today.
