Note to myself on Sunday morning don’t be lazy girl. Let’s go for a walk and better still if it is for a good cause. I was at Tesco Walk For Life 2013, it’s my first year joining this charity walk. I get to know that this is the 6th annual Walk For Life by Tesco Malaysia. Glad that it was held in University of Malaya, I got my first bachelor degree there. We walk 5km around the University of Malaya campus and enjoy the scenic and greenery surroundings.  

There were about 4,000 participants. When we joined this walk not only we get to exercise and have fun with friends and family on Sunday morning but also we are helping the children with luekaemia.

Think about it, everyone should participate if they can. It is not a vigorous marathon, just a casual walk of 5km I think even the children can do that. Plus University of Malaya is safe place to walk, the traffic is not heavy and there is proper walk way for the participants.
