 They came in groups and as families; young and old, and many came in special national costumes to mark the occasion. As having fun and quality time were part of morning's agenda, the walkathon had two events - the 3-kilometer fun walk and the 5-kilometre fun walk.

Besides the walk, there were more games and a lucky draw for everyone. For the participants, they not only benefitted from a morning of healthy activities but weren't home that their effort benefitted hundreds of oprhans and needy children of fifteen homes.

The winner of the Most Outstanding Costume Competition received Guardian vouchers worth RM1,000. Ten others received consolation prizes of RM100 Guardian vouchers each and a goodie bag. Once again congratulations to the winners.
