Participants should check health before walk

PARTICIPANTS should check their health before taking part in the Ipoh Starwalk 2009, said Ipoh Specialist Hospital general manager Ahmad Nasirruddin Harun.
“Participants should ensure that they do not have any injuries before taking part in Starwalk. They should make sure that they are fit and able to walk the long journey during the fun-filled event,” he said.
He later presented a sponsorship of free health-screening test worth RM5,000 to The Star’s account executive Michelle Ho recently.
Ahmad Nasirruddin said 50 lucky participants would win the free health-screening test, adding that the hospital was also sponsoring 200 umbrellas worth about RM4,000.
“About 60 hospital employees have already signed up to take part in the Starwalk which will be flagged off at Stadium Indera Mulia on June 21 at 7am.
“Our cardiac surgeon, Dr Ko Chung Sen, who came in at 10th place in last year’s Starwalk, is also a staunch supporter. All our staff members are very active in sports,” he said.
He noted that they had been participating in Ipoh Starwalk since its inception in 2004.
