The team winners were tabulated based on the time each team of four managed to complete the circuit.Mr. Gopal R, Vice President and Country Head for Frost & Sullivan Malaysia said, "Frost the Trail is all about collaborative participation with other corporate companies who are like minded in wanting to give back to the community." "The generous support of sponsors and participants will go a long way in enabling the amazing individuals that run these organisations to provide shelter, care and hope for the children. We hope Frost the Trail will grow every year so that we are able to increase awareness about these charities so more corporations and individuals will get to know them and hopefully come forward to help so there is sustained aid for them," he continued.
