Morning! Walk For A Cause! Let’s go for a walk with me. This year Guardian’s Annual Charity Walkathon was held in i-City Shah Alam. I reached there around 715am, the weather and view was good that day. Guardian Walkathon 2013 @ i-City Shah Alam Walk For A Cause attracted over 2,500 participants. More Malaysians are taking their health seriously and getting involved with recreational and sports activities together with their family. Last year was at Guardian Annual Charity Walkathon 2012 @ Sunway Lagoon.

For some families this is a yearly event for them. After the walk they go to to iCity’s Waterworld, Snowalk and TrickArt Museum and spend their day there. The eager participants came as early as 7.00am to warm up with exercises as they prepared themselves to take the 8km, 3km and 1km routes respectively.
