This year I’ve pledged myself to get a healthier lifestyle. I’ll be joining the Guardian Walkathon 2016, an annual charity event aimed at promoting walking as part of a healthier lifestyle as well as raise funds for 15 orphanages throughout the country. What a great way to kick- start to my fitness journey!
In its 7th year, the Guardian Walkathon will take place on:
- Date: 16th September 2016 (aka Public Holiday – Malaysia Day)
- Venue: Wetland Park, Putrajaya
- Categories: 3KM & 5KM fun walk
- Time: TBA
Over the years, Guardian’s charity walkathon has evolved and this year they hope to achieve 3,000 participating entries. Similarly, the amount of funds raised and the number of beneficiaries have also increased as well. The aim of the walkathon is to focus on “Walk 10,000 Steps a Day for a Healthier Lifestyle,”.
Tickets to the Guardian Walkathon will be available from today to 28th August at any Guardian stores in Klang Valley and Negeri Sembilan. Pricing as follows:
- Special price: Adults (RM25) / Children (RM15) / Golden Privilege Members (with a min purchase of RM20 in a single receipt from Guardian)
- Group entries tickets: For every 4 pax (RM60 per group)
Each ticket sold, RM5 will be contributed to the orphanages. On top of that, as this event is held in conjunction with Malaysia Day, participants who walk in their most Outstanding Malaysian Costume will get a chance to win the grand prize of Guardian Vouchers worth RM1,000, and consolation prizes of RM100 each!
