World Walking Day - 201111

4000+ turned up for the FREE event and had themselves tons of freebies and fun, all in the name of charity, thanks to Nestle, Good Food, Good Life.

Official color of the day, GREEN with Facebook blue color logo.

Nestle pledged RM1 for every KM walked by each participant. And we walked approximately 4 km. So do your math how much Nestle donated.

The interesting bit is, the walk is held simultaneously at 6 locations; Putrajaya, Penang, Kuantan, Johor, Sabah and Sarawak. And we are of course participating in Putrajaya!!

Pre-registration is required, or you can just show up and register on the spot, and get your FREE t-shirt. And the walk started at 8am.

The walk was pleasant as the sun was not out until we were leaving. And there was also a very light drizzle that's cooling you down further.

You get markers for every 1000 steps, but hey... Who's counting?

Uniformed personnel are stationed throughout our 5000 steps for any special needs that you may have.

Interesting plant spotted
. And once the walk is over, it was just freebies freebies and freebies.

We had free Milo, free Maggi mee, free Cheerios, free Nesvita, free balloons from clowns, etc.

After all the freebies, comes the MAMA of freebies, Lucky Draw!!! With 2 sets of Nintendo Wii up for grabs (grand prize) and shopping vouchers. And I think we used up our luck for the MPSJ Running Clinic getting the Breathe tshirt. So after they drew the grand prize, we left.

All in all, I think it was a fantastic event and Nestle did a good job.
