KUCHING, July 29: Join Kuching South City Council (MBKS) Mayor Dato Wee Hong Seng for a leisurely 3km morning walk on Aug 21 and stand a chance to win four folding bicycles.

The Mayor’s Walk, as part of the annual Kuching Festival 2022 celebrations, is returning after two years of disruptions due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Members of the public of all ages are invited to join this free event with 10,000 specially designed t-shirts to be given out on a first come, first serve basis.

The event will start with the arrival of participants at 5.30am, followed by a Zumba warming-up workout at 6.30am before the Mayor’s Walk begins at 7am.

“Meeting at the MBKS Headquarters foyer, we will stroll along part of Jalan Padungan to Jalan Tan Sri Datuk William Tan to Lorong Goh Meng Teck towards Jalan Sekama before making our way back.

“It is a leisurely walk to bring the community and MBKS family together to get moving and improve our health and wellbeing which is in line with our Kuching Healthy City concept.

“This is also to encourage our citizens to take time out and enjoy the ambiance and appreciate the green shades around our city,” Wee told a press conference today.

Registered participants will be eligible to join the Lucky Draw which offers four folding bicycles sponsored by Go-Beyond Enterprise, as well as other electrical appliances.

In addition, participants can also get free health screenings from the Sihat Sarawakku Programme at the event. The type of health screenings include physical exams, blood pressure check, pulse rate examination, body composition test and eye test.
Selected individuals may also be eligible for additional urine and blood tests.

Wee thanked Ibraco Bhd for their support of the event for the past three years with sponsorship for the t-shirts worth RM70,000 this year, while City Jogger’s Club (CJC) will be assisting in the technical aspect of the event by deploying volunteers to guide the walk.

Deputy Mayor Hilmy Othman, event organising chairperson councillor Chai Hu Loon and councillor Phillip Liaw were among those present.
