Eager treasure hunters were already waiting for the flag-off at Dewan Sivik MBP as early as 6:30am in the morning. Teams from the Novice (those new to treasure hunts), and Regular (seasoned treasure hunters), spent over 5 hours on a journey of solving clues that took them from Petaling Jaya to Bandar Sunway, Subang Jaya, Puchong, Seri Kembangan, and finally culminating at DPULZE Shopping Centre in Cyberjaya.
New to the hunt this year were local MMA sensations, Peter Davis and Saiful ‘The Vampire’ Merican of ONE Championship who also went on the hunt. Fans were thrilled to meet the fighters.
The winners of TNT Charity Hunt 2015 are as follows:
Category Team Name Points Prize
Beginner Fasolatido 97 pts RM 2,000.00
Regular Bentong Ginger 100 pts (Perfect Score) RM 2,000.00
Ngoh Siaw Ling, Human Resources Director of TNT Malaysia, shared her excitement about this year’s hunt, “It is encouraging and exciting to see people from all backgrounds come together for a greater purpose. This year, we are pleased to be able to support four different organisations, to mould and develop the future leaders of tomorrow.”
Coming in at 1st place in the Beginner and Regular categories were Team Fasolatido and Team Bentong Ginger respectively. Team Bentong Ginger walked away with the 1st prize in superb fashion as they recorded a perfect score of 100 points.
This year saw TNT Malaysia donate a total of RM 60,000 to the homes. The funds will be distributed to the needs of more than 100 children from homes such as Shelter Home for Children, Penang Children’s Protection Society, Community at Heart, and Pertubuhan Kebajikan Kanak-Kanak Yatim dan Miskin Port Dickson.

This year, TNT Malaysia will also channel efforts, funds, and resources to provide these children with the right passage to receive proper education through sponsoring transport, tuition fees, accessories, bags and most importantly their meals, to name the least.
“As the ‘People Network’, we believe that we hold the power to give back to society through the right connections that we have. According to UNICEF, about 40 per cent of children under the age of 15 in Malaysia live in poverty, and many of whom have been robbed the access to a proper education as parents cannot afford school fees, transportation and the ancillary costs. It is a very unfortunate fact, as children are the key to our future, deserving every right to a proper education,” said Ngoh.
“As such, we want to break this cycle among the urban poor to provide these children the equal opportunity to receive the education and needs they deserve. We are confident that by partnering with our fellow Malaysians through platforms such as the TNT Charity Hunt, we can create a better future for the leaders of our tomorrow,” added Ngoh.
