Guardian's 2016 Walkathon @ Putrajaya Iconic Wetland

Thousand turned up at Putrajaya's iconic wetland to celebrate Malaysia Day and adapting to a healthier lifestyle with Guardian's Walkathon 2016. Young and old, many came in special national costumes to mark the occasion while having fun and quality time at the walkathon.

The fun walk has 2 categories which are 3 kilometers fun walk and 5 kilometers fun walk. The participants not only benefited from a morning of healthy activities, they also get to join in many fun games and lucky draw. 

In conjunction with the walkathon, Guardian Malaysia had donated a total of RM300,000 to 15 homes across the country. Part of the charity funds came from the sales of Walkathon ticket, while the remaining came from Guardian Malaysia. The representative of three of the homes, namely Rumah Penyayang Ulin Nuha, Pusat Jagaan Kanak-Kanak Yatim Muhammad Al-Fateh and Pusat Jagaan Pertubuhan Anak-Anak Yatim Darul Aminan received their cheques from Ms Christina Low, Marketing Director at the prize presentation ceremony. 

The Walkathon now in its 7th year is Guardian Malaysia's rallying call to get members of the community from all walks of life to commit to a healthier lifestyle while contributing to the charity.
