Walk for Health with NASAM
BeCause team comprising members, friends, as well as staff from Holiday Travel & Tours Sports Club make up a group of about 50, participated in the Nasam Walk for Health on 19th October 2014. At Lake Titiwangsa. This event by Nasam was to create awareness amongst participants about stroke, the most common causes and the avenue available for rehabilitation.
As it was a Sunday, many individuals, teams, strokees, family members, helpers and assistants turned up for the walk. After registration, the walk was flagged off about 7.45am by Janet Yeo, the founder of Nasam. Though some strokees were in wheel chairs, it was heartening to see some other strokees putting every effort to walk on their own to complete their round. The outing went smoothly as the weather was good and the walk was at an easy pace. The full walk was 3 rounds around the lake in Taman Titiwangsa. Most participants were able to complete the rounds. The walk ended at about 9.30am. Participants were treated to free Milo drinks and cereals at the Nestle mobile kiosks thanks to kind sponsors. Some had their breakfast of nasi lemak and coffees. Later, prizes were awarded for the best hats competition. The event was a success and most importantly, everyone enjoyed themselves.
A vote of thanks to NASAM for organizing and inviting us. By taking part, Because members and friends are happy to have made a difference in the life of others and especially in the welfare of Stroke patients and their families.
