Report: Mouth Cancer Awareness Walkathon

Date: 14 November 2010 (Sunday)
Time: 7.30am
Venue: Entrance C, Bukit Jalil Recreation Park, Kuala Lumpur
Distance: 4km

This is a charity fun walk and it clashes with another charity run in UKM. There were not too many people who join this fun walk. Most of them are from the dentistry faculty of University Malaya.

The event went smoothly as scheduled and I would say it was well organized. However, I feel that participants could collect their shirt on event day (come earlier, say by 7.00 a.m.) so that distribution would be completed on time before the speeches and warm up session.

The organizer failed to send the shirt as stated in the entry form due to the supplier who send those shirts late to them. Participants were also given certificates of participation - they had to write their names, i.c. and address and the organiser would send the certificates to them.

I personally feel that this is not necessary as it incurs costs – postage and stamps. It would be better if they just give the certificates as the participants crossed the finishing line.

I enjoyed the walk with my children. It was rare opportunity for them to walk with me in the park. We stopped at the playground for a few minutes before rejoining the other participants.

I believed that they too enjoyed the walk and fun there.
