Walk For Charity 2010

Islamic Outreach ABIM invites Malaysian community members to sign up for their annual “Walk For Charity” event on Sunday, July 25 2010 at Dataran Merdeka, Kuala Lumpur. Participants can register by calling 03-42569822. The “Walk for Charity”, sponsored by various corporate organizations, including Bank Simpanan Nasional and Maybank Islamic, MAIS, Gardenia and many others, will benefit a number of its activities including Children Welfare & Sponsorship Program, Awareness Through Mosque Tour, Orang Asli Socio-Economic Development Program, Hospital Visit Task Force.

Registration for the event is at RM15 and RM10 for students. All participants will receive a “goodie bag” filled by event sponsors with a complimentary event T-shirt. The walkathon starts at 7:30 am, with participant and sponsor registration beginning at 6.30am. Sign up is at the registration tent on the corner of the main parking lot. Various viewing stations and tents will be set up along the path for supporters to watch and sponsors to distribute water and other items.

I thought of joining this event - since it does not requires me to run. I used to run a lot last time which resulted with an operation on both of my knees not so long ago. And becoz of that, I'm no longer fit for running - brisk walking is all I'm left with, which is why I would wanna join this charity walk.

So to all my fellow friends & readers, come and join me for this walkathon (by the way, Hajar & Lin already agreed to join). It's like killing 2 birds with one stone - not only you'll be doing good deeds to yourself, you are giving back to the society too at the same time.
