Saturday, June 10th, 2017

ABOUT 2,000 people are expected to take part in the 9th Malaysian Red Crescent Society (MRCS) Heritage Walk 2017 on July 16 in Penang.

Jointly organised by the MRCS Penang branch, BSG Property and Kwong Wah Yit Poh, the event will be flagged off at Methodist Boys’ School in Jalan Air Itam at 8am.

The 5km walk will start and end at the school.

Participants will pass sites such as Suffolk House, Penang Free School and the governor’s official residence Seri Mutiara in Jalan Utama.

The routes also covers Jalan Air Itam, Jalan York, Jalan Scotland, Jalan Air Itam, Jalan Han Chiang, Jalan Masjid Negeri, Jalan Free School, Jalan Terengganu and Jalan Kampar.

MRCS Penang branch vice- chairman II Datuk Khoo Cheok Sin said they hoped to raise RM200,000 from the walk.

“The fund is for our many humanitarian projects.

“We need to train our members in first aid and rescue skills as well as in disaster relief and management.

“Those donating RM300 or above will be invited to take part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the start of the walk,” he said at a press conference at the MRCS Penang office.

MRCS Penang branch chairman Datuk B.J. Yeang said participants should wear the Heritage Walk T-shirts to be eligible for a lucky draw.

Also present were Pallas footwear brand executive Eppie Lee and Sunquick representative K. Arthur.

Entrance fee is RM30 per person and the closing date is July 10.
