City Mayor Supports Shangri-La Sabah’s Autism Fun Ride

Kota Kinabalu City Mayor Datuk Yeo Boon Hai (fifth from right) shows his support for Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa and Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria Resort & Spa’s “Ride For Autism Awareness” as he poses with event organisers at his office recently.

General manager of Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa Gavin Weightman (fourth from right) and general manager of Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria Resort & Spa Fiona Hagan (fifth from left) brief the mayor and ask for his advice during the courtesy visit.

This will be the fourth “Ride For Autism Awareness”, with the first one organized back in 2015 by Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria Resort & Spa and its partners. The ride aimed at raising public awareness for this mental condition among Kota Kinabalu city residents.

Other organisers include Sabah Land Rover Club and the Sabah Amateur Radio Society.
