Eat Right to Play Right

Eat Right to Play Right

At Zurich, being a responsible and sustainable company is at the foundation of our business. We believe in investing for a better future by protecting and giving back to the communities in which we live and work.

Together with the support from the Z Zurich Foundation and One Goal Malaysia, we launched the Eat Right to Play Right (ERTPR) programme with the aim to improve the nutritional knowledge and status of our children. Leveraging on the power of football and Malaysia’s passion for the sport, the ERTPR programme uses football as a platform to educate children on the importance of nutrition as well as instill self-discipline and sportsmanship.

ERTPR Youth Cup 2018

  • Kedah

    Over 500 young footballers gained more than just footballing experience during the first installment of our ERTPR Youth Cup 2018 held at the Industrial Training Institute of Jitra (ILP Jitra) in Kedah. This inaugural state tournament was organised in line with the new initiatives under our ERTPR integrated community programme.

     

    On 15 and 16 September, we welcomed 40 teams across the northern region of Kedah, Penang, and Perlis to compete in four different categories – the Under 8, Under 10, Under 12, and Under 14. The tournament not only provided a platform for the young talents to showcase their skills but also offered a variety of fun games and activities to educate them on proper nutrition practices and healthy lifestyle habits.
