This is the 4th edition of the event created and organized by social enterise Ouryouth.my – initiated by creative agency Conqueror’s Vision Sdn Bhd in 2012 , and it is dedicated to youth development of Sarawak through various events. Deviating from the past 3 years that were in conjunction of Halloween, Monster Dash 4 creates a ‘ Light Up the City ‘ edition this time around while still retaining the event’s essence – a fun and family friendly charitable run.
Aside from engaging the public in healthy community events, the event also provides social networking and volunteerism platform that encourage the youth’s active participation in charitable effort.

It is Monster Dash’s unremetting goal to be a testimony of the city’s kindred spirits when it comes to having a good time for a great cause.
The charity fun run also saw participation of various sponsors from both government and corporate sectors annually. ‘ It has always been one of OurYouth.my core vision to bridge the community. Through an event as such, so many parties can benefit from it in terms of reaching out to the public while at the same time contribute back to the society. We hope that partnerships as such will encourage more entities to work together and create a greater impact for the development of the State ‘ said Dato Patrick.
