Kuala Lumpur, 27 July 2016 — Urban Health Sdn Bhd and HANKidz Zone Sdn Bhd will be collaborating to bring the Malaysian public a unique kids' walkathon. For the first time in Malaysia, a kids' walkathon, which combines exercise and education, will be held at The Central Park. Desa ParkCity, on the 30th of October 2016 (Sunday), from 7:30 am to 12.30pm.
The walkathon will feature a 2km route with an expected turnout of 500 pairs of participants (a total of 1.000 participants). Each pair will consist of 1 child and 1 parent.
