Raleigh Round Island Challenge

It was the year 1992, Raleigh Kuala Lumpur embarked on a remarkable quest to swim across the Malacca Straits – an incredible 60 kilometers in total; all in the name of raising funds to send Malaysian youths to Raleigh EXPEDITIONS around the world.

20 years on,they are back. Same objectives, but this time around the challenge comprise a crew of 56 swimmers swimming 56 kilometers around Pulau Perhentian in part of Malaysia’s 56th year of independence.

The objectives of the Raleigh Round Island Challenge are:

  • To raise fund in preparation to send more Malaysian youths to Raleigh Expeditions (Tanzania, Costa Rica, Borneo etc.), which focuses on youth development through community, environment and adventure projects.
  •  To reach out to the public, introducing Raleigh Kuala Lumpur and it’s locally run activities and projects.
  • As a platform for Raleigh ex-venturers to contribute back to society.

Raleigh Kuala Lumpur (Raleigh KL) is a registered NGO with the Malaysian Registrar of Societies since 1999. It is made up of ex-venturers and expedition staff as well as those interested in expedition and Raleigh-type activities.

Raleigh KL supports the process of Malaysian venturers and volunteer managers participating in local and overseas expeditions organised by Raleigh International. Raleigh KL also carries out various adventure, community and environmental projects locally and monthly activities too.
