This year Chariofare 2023 bounced back phenomenally after the pandemic and was indeed bigger, better, and bolder! The vibrant atmosphere, the spirited performances and the sheer energy that permeated the campus grounds were a testament to the unity and generosity that defines our university.

Chariofare, once again has brought the people together, embodying the kindred spirits of IMU-ians that is contributing towards a greater good!

I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to our long lists of sponsors for their contribution as well as our dearest runners for participating in this year’s Chariofare. I deeply appreciate each and every one of you who has dedicated tremendous effort in making Chariofare 2023 a great success.

Chariofare Memories

In 2022, after two years of not being able to run in full physically, IMU’s biggest and longest running flagship project – IMU Chariofare Charity Run-Carnival made a strong full-scale comeback this year with a big crowd turnout and an exhilarating carnival. Almost 900 runners including IMU staff and students and their families, professional and amateur runners, corporate and community partners as well as the general public participated in the run.

In 2019,the haze may have resulted in the cancellation of the run for this year’s Chariofare but it did not cast a gloomy atmosphere for the fund-raising carnival that took place as scheduled. Instead, IMU students and staff as well as the general public continued to enjoy the day’s festivities and even showed their immense generosity so much so that this year’s edition raised a record-breaking RM330,000!

In 2018, with over 1750 runners, Chariofare 2018 with the theme of 'Igniting Paths' has managed to raise over RM279,000 for the IMU Cares Humanitarian Aid Funds. This theme was put in place to remind us of why we started Chariofare in the beginning - to use the burning passion in the hearts of students, staff and the public alike, to fuel our actions into making a difference and touching as many lives as we can.
