IMU CHARIOFARE will be having a physical comeback this year!
After three years of not being able to run in full physically, IMU’s biggest and longest running flagship project – IMU CHARIOFARE 2022 will be a very meaningful and historic event with a theme "Voyage in Unity". The 11th edition of CHARIOFARE this year aims to unite people from all walks of life, across different age groups and social backgrounds to lend a helping hand, together, for the betterment of our community, especially during these tough times.
Since its first launch in 2012, CHARIOFARE has assisted and improved the lives of more than 10,000 underprivileged individuals in the community nationwide by providing essentials including medical treatment and equipment as well as through our emergency relief during disaster. CHARIOFARE 2022 expected to host over 1,000 participants including IMU staff, students and families, professional and amateur runners, community partners, as well as the general public to join us throughout multiple awareness programs commencing August 2022 and will culminate in a charity run and family-friendly carnival on 29 October 2022.
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.
